Book Fair
November 
Volunteer at this year's BOOK FAIR and support Cornwall Elementary's library!  Our kids are so excited to shop on their own, but they often need a little help finding just the right book that matches their interests. You can help by signing up for either a 2-hour or 4-hour shift to sell books, assist with setting up the displays, or help when we put everything away. If you can only volunteer for part of a shift, just note that in the comments section.When you arrive, please be sure to stop by the office to sign in (ID required), before heading up to the library.One special note: we ask that small siblings do not come along when you are volunteering. Mrs. Forker will be teaching class in the library during the Book Fair, and small children can be a distraction. Thank you!  Contact Wendy Zartman at twzee@comcast.net if you have any questions. Help make our Book Fair a success!


Parent Teacher Conference Dinner
November 

Please help coordinate the special meal provided to the teachers and staff during the fall parent-teacher conferences by signing up for any of the following; making phone calls, organizing food donations, setting up, serving and cleaning up.  


Cornwall Holiday Shop
December
Holiday Shop Elves - The Cornwall Elementary School PTO is busy preparing for the Cornwall Holiday Shop.  This event is held each year to allow the children to independently select and purchase inexpensive gifts for their family and loved ones. We always have a nice variety of gifts ranging from $1.00 to $7.00 (tax included).The PTO needs many helpers to make this event successful.  We need 'elves' to assist each child with their shopping.  This includes gift selection, totaling the purchase, packaging the gifts, and checking out.  When you arrive, be sure to sign in at the office and show your ID before you come to the gym. Sign up for as many dates/times as you can.  If you can only volunteer for part of a shift, just add a comment telling us when you can be there.   LOCATION: Gym-Cornwall Elementary School

Cornwall Carnival
March
Every other year the Cornwall Elementary PTO hosts the Cornwall Carnival. It is a fun day of games, entertainment, and the class basket auction. The kids look forward to this event all year! Money raised at the Carnival will be used to fund field trips for the students.We are in need of many volunteers. These volunteers are needed to set-up, sell tickets, work the game booths, help with parking, help with food, clean up and many other tasks. Most shifts on the day last 1 1/2-2 hours. Please report to the volunteer table 10 minutes before your shift.  Please keep in mind there is no snow date for this event. Volunteers will be notified on Friday if we need to cancel the event.


Kindergarten Registration 
May 
The Future Cornwall Kindergartners will be given name tags at the Main Entrance and escorted to the Library, where the parents will fill out paper work and the students will have screenings. After this, the parents are guided to another location to answer questions and the students are escorted to the Learning Lab for further testing. We will need Friendly PTO Parents to help guide them to their assigned areas quickly and comfortably. As you all know, Kindergarten is a big and scary step for some students which will need reassuring from time to time, especially when separated from their parents.


Teacher Appreciation Week

Please join us in celebrating the Cornwall Elementary School Teachers and Staff.
