Correction! The Cougar Dash has been moved to Wednesday, November 17th!

Oops! We did it again! We apologize for that confusing email post earlier this evening families. We wanted to confirm that the Cougar Dash has indeed moved to Wednesday, November 17th due to the forecast for tomorrow. All families are still invited to join us in a few weeks to cheer on their favorite runner with signs, noise makers or just some whistles! In the meantime… feel free to grab a few more last minute pledges!

Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers… now’s your chance to help where we’re needed most! The PTO is looking for volunteers to provide lunchtime coverage for our hard working CES teachers. Signing up to volunteer allows the PTO to ensure a duty-free lunch to teachers from two grades, each day.

Before you sign-up, here are a few things to know:

  • All volunteers must be REGISTERED and CLEARED with CMS prior to signing-up. If you haven’t already done so, you can register here. This process may take several days.
  • Please arrive ON TIME to be checked-in and receive your assignment.
  • To participate, you must be able to STAY FOR THE ENTIRE TIME. Each volunteer spot indicates a window of time you will be needed to help cover a classroom or teacher.
  • You will receive your classroom assignment for the day from a CES PTO Board member. These will be predetermined before your arrival, and you may not be assigned to your child’s classroom. Please remember this is a school-wide initiative, and we hope to aid all of our teachers!
  • We hope to add more dates in the future. Please continue to follow our Facebook page for additional chances to volunteer your time.

To view opportunities or to sign-up to volunteer, please visit the October Sign-Up Genius or November Sign-Up Genius. Questions can be sent to the Cornelius PTO.

The Cougar Dash is Coming! REVISED TIMES!

Mark your calendars for one of our coolest fundraisers of the year! The Cougar Dash will take place on Thursday, October 28th. Ahead of the event date, a packet of information will be sent home with each Cornelius student including a pledge sheet. Each Cougar will have the opportunity to win prizes based on their participation and pledges. We invite parents to volunteer at the event, or simply to come out and cheer on your runners! Signs and pom-poms welcome!
