School is Just Around the Corner…


Though we are all enjoying our summers, school will be here before we know it! Your PTO wants to share just a few reminders:

• Order your back-to-school supplies before August 9 with School Tool Box!  One-stop-shopping covers everything your student needs for their grade level.  All orders made before August 9 will arrive before the first day of school. CLICK HERE and search for “Cornelius Elementary”

• To all KINDERGARTEN parents: Popsicles on the Playground will be August 22 from 4:00 to 5:00pm. This is a great chance for your kids to meet their classmates, ask the staff questions and enjoy some popsicles!

Open House will be held on August 23 from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Come get your agendas, transportation documents and of course, your Cornelius Cougar Spirit Wear!

• First Day of School is August 27.

• It’s never to early to plan a date night! The CES PTO Backyard Social and Silent Auction will be held on September 21. This casual, adult-only event is the perfect way to kick off the new school year, meet other CES parents and support the school. Tickets go on sale August 1. If you would like to volunteer or donate to this event, please contact
