School Beautification Day and Investing In Excellence Fundraiser

September 13 is a big day.  Please join us!

School Beautification Day, 9/13 from 9am – 1pm

The PTO is looking for volunteers to give our school a little TLC.  A little pressure-washing, landscaping (pruning, trimming and edging) and painting can go a long way in making our school a more beautiful and welcoming place.  If you would like to volunteer, please join us and bring your tools!

For more information or to sign up please contact Kelly Osborne at
or Stephanie Kennedy at

Please join us at the Galway Hooker in Cornelius for a night of food, fun and a great silent auction!  Come out and support our school!

Thanks for the Support During Teacher Appreciation Week

Parents & Families of Cornelius Cougars,

On behalf of the PTO, THANK YOU so very much for your generous support of Teacher Appreciation Week. It was a great success. The teachers loved getting their daily gifts and were so grateful for all the extra special touches. Many classes had beautifully decorated doors, teachers received great pictures of their kids and many had a nice break one day when parents volunteered their time for recess. The little things truly do count!

PTO and the school provided breakfast and lunch each day for the staff. We ask that you please remember these local businesses as you are out with your children. Without their donations and support, we could not have had such a successful week. Next time you stop by, be sure to say THANKS for supporting Cornelius Elementary.

Amazing Donations and Support for Teacher Appreciation Week were provided by:
Smoothie King, Huntersville
Salsarita’s, Huntersville
The Fresh Market
The Original NY Bagels & Deli, Jetton Village
Brixx, Birkdale Village
Cashion’s Gas Station (provided Krispy Kreme)
McAllister’s Deli, Cornelius
Lake Norman Baptist Church (donated breakfast)
McDonald’s, Cornelius
The Grateful Table
Harris Teeter, Cornelius

Thank you again for your time and support,
Lena Graham
PTO Hospitality Chair
