Congratulations to the entire Apollo Middle School community!  Mayor Dean announced last year that Apollo Middle School is the recipient of a complete library makeover!  The new library will be ready near the end of August, with a grand opening in September.    We are excited about creating a space which will unite our parents and community with Apollo’s students and staff!  This is just one more example of exciting things happening at Apollo Middle School!
