Walking in a Cookie Wonderland…

Time to Show Up and Show Off that Baking Prowess, Cougar Fam!

Should school be cancelled any of these days, the Cookie Walk will be extended to make up for the days missed (ie: if no school Monday it will extend to Thursday). What a great activity for a cold, snowy (possibly extended) weekend! Get your cookie baking supplies before the weather rolls in! 

Holiday Shopping

The Holiday Store is open and running. It’s so great to see the kids really consider who they want to buy for, use their math skills to add, and work to stay in their budgets. We’ve even had a few show their generosity by donating their extra change for other students! (Don’t worry parents: We advise them to keep it if it’s more than a few quarters.)

If your student didn’t have a chance to go during their scheduled time, we are here Tuesday and Thursday all day until 3:00pm and Wednesday and Friday until 12:00pm. Teachers are kindly offering their kids the opportunity to come down so feel free to send them in with their envelopes.

And if you haven’t already, please go to smile.amazon.com and support “Cornelius Elementary PTO.” It’s free to you, and means so much to us. Thank you for all you do, Cougar Fam!


Community Night @ Brooklyn South Pizzeria & Rivals Sports


Tomorrow, November 14 is Community Night at Brooklyn South Pizzeria, located at 19400 Jetton Rd. Whether you dine in on their delicious ravioli or take a pie to go, be sure to mention you’re eating for Cornelius Elementary. And don’t forget to add a fresh salad, which perfectly balances cannoli and mozzarella sticks.. It’s science. (This statement not approved by the FDA.)

Then head next door to Rivals Sports & Home where your child can drop off their coloring sheet for a chance to win a prize while you check out all the fun sports merchandise they offer.

And the Winners Are…

It’s official: The Cougar Dash is a wrap! We are so proud of how hard the students worked to gather their pledges and make this the most successful Cougar Dash fundraiser ever! Drumroll please…
