Holiday Store is OPEN

The Holiday Store is open and running. It’s amazing watching the kids really consider who they want to buy for, use their math skills to add, and work to stay in their budgets. We’ve even had a few show their generosity by donating their extra change for other students! (Don’t worry parents: We advise them to keep it if it’s more than loose change.)

If your student didn’t have a chance to go during their scheduled time, or missed an item, we have open time for make-up shoppers from 8:45-9:15. Teachers are kindly offering their kids the opportunity to come down so feel free to send them in with their envelopes.IMG_1166

And if you haven’t already, please go to and support “Cornelius Elementary PTO.” It’s free to you, and means so much to us. Thank you for all you do, Cougar Fam!
