Kickin’ It Old School is Happening May 22nd!

Join us Sunday, May 22nd, from 3:00 pm-6:00 pm at Smithville Park for Kickin’ it Old School, a CES outdoor family event. We will have corn hole, food trucks, picnic areas and the splash pad will be open. We can’t wait to kick it with you!

Make sure to get your kickball team signed up for our first annual “Kickin’ It Old School” game by Sunday, 5/15. Here’s how the kickball games work!

  1. Form your kids+adults team! Rally your CES friends and neighbors. Teams should have 10-12 players on the roster, and at least half must be students. REGISTER HERE!
  2. Consider having a uniform – custom t-shirts to show your spirit, or just all wear the same color if you can!
  3. Look for an email by May 18th with you team’s registration confirmation and first game time.

Interested in volunteering for the event? Cool beans! Sign-Up Here!

Teacher Appreciation Week Begins Monday!

Monday, May 2nd through Friday, May 6th will be Teacher Appreciation Week at CES. We hope all Cougars will use this time to say a big “THANK YOU!” to our Cornelius Elementary teachers and staff!


Monday: Thank you for helping us bloom! Students can bring in a flower to school. Draw one, buy one, or pick one!

Tuesday: We are crazy about our teachers! Students should wear something crazy to school, like crazy socks!

Wednesday: Thank you for making our school so bright! Students wear bright colors to school.

Thursday: You are the sweetest teacher! Students can make or buy a sweet card or treat.

Friday: Let’s give our teachers a round of applause! A school wide round of applause will be a loud and exciting way to celebrate the last day of teacher appreciation! Class gifts will also be presented this day.

If you would like to see your teacher or staff person’s favorite things, please visit the survey page. Thank you for helping us make every teacher and faculty member at CES feel loved and appreciated!

Spirit Night is Thursday!

What’s the best thing about Thursdays? Hungry Howie’s of course! Join us for Spirit Night this Thursday, April 21st! Hungry Howie’s will donate 10% of their net sales from 4-9pm back to the Cornelius Elementary PTO to support our teachers and kiddos. Sounds like a WIN!
