My name is KatieCaggia and it is with great pride and honor that I am writing you as your recently named Principal of Apex Elementary School! I have had the privilege of spending the majority of my 22 year educational career here in Apex starting as a teacher at Olive Chapel Elementary and a Principal Intern at Green Hope Elementary. The past 6 years, I have served the Chapel Hill community as Assistant Principal of Estes Hills Elementary and Principal of Glenwood Elementary. I am elated to be returning home to Apex and look forward to continuing my career serving as Principal at one of the best elementary schools in the state!
I am proud to say that I grew up in Apex, attending Apex Elementary, Middle and High Schools! My husband, Pete, serves as the Salem Middle School teacher librarian and we have two sons, one a sophomore at Appalachian State University and the other a junior at Apex High School. Family is a core value of mine and I am dedicated to partnering with families to recognize and celebrate each child’s unique brilliance and strengths, ensuring success for all. I am eager to join you and the entire Apex Elementary community this school year. Once I have transitioned to Apex, I will be hosting family meet and greets. It is very important to me that I hear about and understand your hopes and expectations for our dynamic learning community. Please accept my invitation to meet with me or contact me at anytime. I absolutely cannot wait to meet and work with your amazing students! I promise that past commitments to excellent instruction, academic rigor and meaningful student engagement will continue to be our primary focus. As a school family, we will continue to ensure that we are one family working together to provide a supportive, rigorous learning environment while developing lifelong learners!
