Tonight, Brooklyn South and Rivals are partnering with us for a joint community night from 5-9PM. Brooklyn South will donate a percentage of sales back to Cornelius Elementary. In addition to this, Rivals is having specials and hosting a coloring contest. Drop your sheet off at Rivals before 7PM to participate. Coloring sheets for the contest were sent home in Thursday folders and extra copies are in the front office at school. Prizes will be announced and awarded to winners. Rivals is extending their hours to 9:00PM for us so let’s help support these local businesses as they help support Cornelius Elementary.

The CES Fall Book Fair is here, starting tomorrow, October 17th and ending Friday, October 21st. Students will preview books tomorrow and Tuesday where a wish list will be completed and sent home. Classes will return to the fair on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday to make purchases. Your child’s teacher will provide you with your child’s preview and purchase times. If you choose, you may send a check with your child made out to “Cornelius Elementary PTO” and he/she will be able to purchase books when they visit with their class. If you prefer to send cash, please seal it in an envelope labeled with your child’s name, teacher’s name and amount enclosed. CLICK HERE to place orders on-line and all orders will benefit our school.
