CES’ Book Stop in the News!

Our very own Book  Stop, currently managed by our PTA volunteer, Margot Bennett, was recently highlighted in the Wake County PTA Council’s newsletter as a “Wonderful Idea Wednesday” spotlight!  Several dedicated volunteers come in to keep this store “open” and running each week.

Margot has put in eighteen years, out of the twenty five years of its existence, into this “book shop” that is unique to our school.  We are thankful for her dedication over such a lengthy period of time and look forward to continuing on this service of getting books into the hands of all of our students for years to come!

SPRING BREAK is almost here!

Monday, April 15th through Monday, April 22nd, our students will have NO SCHOOL as we enjoy SPRING BREAK!  Enjoy your time together.  Rest, relax, and please return to us safely.  We’ll see you back on Tuesday, April 23rd for the final push!

Please check those backpacks…

Yearbooks, for those who ordered them, and report cards should have come throughout this past week.  If they haven’t made their way to your hands, you might want to check with your child.

(And while you’re at it, the germ-fest is still out there, so please keep up the vigilance wiping down the backpacks and school belongings!). Thank you for your efforts!

Help Needed: PTA Staff Lunch on Monday!

This is our final grade-level sponsored PTA Staff lunch of the year.  We are in need of some assistance.  Kindergarten parents, we ask you fill in what spots you can, but any other parents, if you see a hole and can provide a need, we would love your help.  Especially if your grade level’s meal was sponsored by a restaurant earlier in the year, here’s a great opportunity to jump in and help fill a need since your load at that time was lighter.  Let’s continue to show our amazing teachers and staff just how much we appreciate them and make their day that much easier.

Please see the sign-up for ways to help out!  Thank you so much in advance!


IMP Academy for NEW East Cary Middle School Students

Change is coming for some of our families.  Whether your child is a rising 6th grader first entering the middle school world or your current middle school child has been reassigned to ECMS (and chosen not to grandfather in at RCMMS), this fall could mean a change of venues for your family.

East Cary Middle School is seeking to make the transition to go as smoothly as possible.  Thursday, April 9th, from 5:30-7:30 PM, they are hosting the Imp Academy for students NEW to their school (rising 6th, 7th, or 8th).

They will have sessions to introduce you to how middle school works, how they integrate STEM into their classes, mock schedules, tours, and more, including what it’s going to be like in the day of a life of an Imp.  Gaining this type of introductory knowledge now hopefully can soothe any nerves out there and build on that excitement inherent in this time of life.

Please RSVP at http://www.wcpss.net/eastcaryms before Thursday!

Tuesday, April 9th: PTA Lip Sync and Silent Auction Night!

We have a fun-filled evening planned!  Be there to bid on teacher experiences, try for a mystery gift card, and know that your donations will not only gain you an amazing opportunity but support our Cary Elementary needs.  It’s a win-win.

How much would your child love to walk downtown with their favorite teacher for ice cream?  How about enjoy a movie?  Check out the teacher experiences our generous teachers are offering!  They invest so much in our students already and they continue to go above and beyond!

To keep the event even more lively, watch our amazing students who have signed up for the Lip Sync competition.  If last year was a reflection, we know you’re bound to be entertained!  When our Cary Elementary community gathers, fun is ahead.

And don’t forget Dr. Keadle will be there for free spine checks if you choose to take him up on the opportunity.

See you in the gym!  Events will begin by 6:15P M and doors will close by 8:30 PM.

*Please note that if you win the silent auction, you do need to be prepared to pay that night (in person, or digitally).  Thank you so much!*
