Wild West Fall Book Fair October 16-20

The CES Fall Book Fair is here, starting Monday, October 16 and ending Friday, October 20. Students will preview books Monday 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. Our online book fair will be open October 20-November 9. CLICK HERE to place orders on-line and all orders will benefit our school.
