Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, October 9 for the CES PTO Community Night at Mama’s Pizza Express. Whether you dine in, take delivery or carry out, be sure to mention Cornelius Elementary as a percentage of net sales will be donated back to the PTO. And since we know Community night calories don’t count, be sure to try some of their delicious cannoli or home made tiramisu! Or both- we don’t judge.
Couldn’t make the Backyard Social & Silent Auction but still want to help your school? We have two amazing ideas for you:
- Check out DonorsChoose.org to see how you can directly fund Cornelius Elementary teachers. They accept any donation amount and you see the direct impact of your dollars, including flexible seating, Robotics Club to promote STEAM learning, technology, new books, and so much more. There are even companies that randomly match donations, as well as a button to share on social media so you can encourage your family and friends to try to be as awesome as you are!
- Volunteer at School! (*cough*Cougar Dash on October 25 *cough*cough*) Check out the Volunteer Page to see all available opportunities. In case you missed it, there is a great article about the benefits of volunteering here…
We look forward to seeing you around school!
The 5th Annual Backyard Social & Silent Auction was a GIANT success. We want to thank everyone who turned out and turned it up; together we raised more than $25,000!
A huge shout out goes to Lindsay Meekin for all her hard work putting this event together, and a few locals who made it possible: City BBQ and Fresh Market for the amazing food, Bullfrog Moon rocked our ears off, and Sweet Magnolia Estate for the beautiful venue. What an amazing start to the year!
The School Store opens tomorrow, September 26. There are plenty of useful items including pencils and notebooks, ranging from $0.25 – $5.00.
In order to accommodate our younger shoppers, we will now be open on Wednesdays in the First Grade hallway, as well as on Fridays in the area near the PTO office. (Tell the kiddos to look for the sign, pictured here.)
Have your kids mine the change from the couch or do an extra chore to shop in the school store this week!
All proceeds benefit the CES PTO. Cash only.
Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, September 25 for our first CES Community Night at Tenders from 5p-9p at 18341 Statesville Road, Cornelius.
A portion of every sale goes back to the school, and since Community Night calories don’t count, it’s the perfect time to order one of their delicious hand-spun shakes!
