Summer Reading Lists

Our virtual learning may be wrapping up, but summer reading is just beginning! Summer Reading Lists have been put together by your Cornelius Elementary teachers with hand picked books for each grade level.

Want to go a step further? The Virtual Book Fair will run from May 29th to August 14th. Keep up those reading skills over the break and support our school and PTO at the same time. Lots of new and great titles are available and book orders over $25 ship FREE, right to your doorstep. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends… anyone can order and help support our school! Just order with the school link below. Let’s keep them reading!

Event Cancellations

Many questions abound in the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents should have received home a letter outlining all the proactive steps being taken to mitigate the spread of this virus, including limiting gatherings. The following PTO events affected include:

  • 3/24 El Toro Community Night- Cancelled
  • 3/28 PTO Car Wash Fundraiser- Postponed (Date TBD)
  • 4/3 Urban Air Son Event- Cancelled. *Refunds processing*
  • The CES School Store will be closed until further notice. 
  • 4/2 PTO Board & Committee Meeting – rescheduled or relocated

*We will begin processing refunds for those who have already paid for the Son Event this weekend. Please understand one person has to process each order individually, so it will take some time. Once yours has been processed, you will receive an email. According to Square, refunds can take up to 9-14 business days to appear on your credit card.

Information will continue to be posted as we learn about it. Continue monitoring email, and follow us on Facebook for updates.
