Celebrates the Arts Talent Show Now Full

We are blown away by the students’ enthusiasm and participation in the Celebrates the Arts Talent Show! At this time, all 30 talent show spots have been filled. We thank your students for their interest, and we hope you all plan to come as Cornelius Celebrates the Arts on Thursday, March 15, beginning at 5pm.

Thank Your Bus Driver!


This week, February 12-16, is Bus Driver Appreciation Week!
Please be sure to thank your bus driver(s) for getting your students to and from school safely each day. Students will be making cards in their classrooms for the bus drivers, but be sure to thank them yourselves!

Last Week for Box Tops!

We HEART Box Tops!
Each Box Top brings in 10 cents for the school, and they add up fast—what’s not to love?! Plus, the class in each grade that collects the most Box Tops wins an extra recess. Win-win!
This is the final week of the school year we will be collecting Box Tops. Check your pantries, drawers, etc., clip the Box Tops (don’t cut off the expiration date!) and send them in a ziploc bag or envelope to school with your student. Friday, February 16 will be the final collection day.
Thank you for your help!
