It’s Prosciutto’s family night!

Please join us at Prosciutto’s tonight, 11/12, and save yourself the hassle of cooking dinner!  Dine in or carry out – you choose.  A portion of all proceeds will come back to Cornelius Elementary, so it’s a win-win.  We hope to see you there!  Thank you for your support.

Cougar DASH Results are in!

Together, we raised $24,500 on our 1st annual Cougar DASH!  We had a record 46% of students and their families who participated this year.  We would like to send a special “thank you” to our chairperson, Stephanie Kennedy, for organizing the event.  Also, “thank you” to all the parent volunteers, PTO members, staff and community sponsors.  Without your help, we could not have made the event such a huge success.
If you were not able to contribute and would like to help us reach our annual PTO goal of $68,000, please go to to donate or make checks payable to Cornelius PTO.  We still need your help!  Thank you for your continued support of Cornelius PTO and Cornelius Elementary.

Thank you from the Book Fair Committee!

To all the volunteers, parents that visited and students and staff that participated – thank you!  It was a great week at the Book Fair and we owe its success to you all.  We really appreciate your support and couldn’t have done it without you!
If you didn’t make it this week, books can still be purchased online through November 15 at:

PTO Hospitality Needs Our Help

Each month, our Hospitality Committee finds fantastic ways to surprise the staff at CES and show how much we appreciate them and all they do.  For the month of November, we need your and your student’s help!
- Please send in your “thankful notes” ASAP!  These can be written by you or your student(s) and will be hung in the teachers lounge for all to read.   We are in need of many more and would like to have new ones to hang each day this month.
- Interested in cooking for the staff??  Let’s celebrate the “pumpkin” in November. We will bring in baked pumpkin goodies one day each week in November. Want to help… Email
Thank you for helping to make our teachers feel appreciated!
