“Here Comes the Bus” App is Ready!

Here Comes the Bus app is now available for all parents of children who ride the school bus to or from school.   This app enables you to see the location of your child’s school bus on a smartphone, tablet or computer.  This way, you know when the bus is near your stop.

It is free to all families!  Download the ‘Here Comes the Bus’ app from the App Store or Google Play for your smartphone or tablet.  For your computer, sign up at https://login.herecomesthebus.com/SignUp.aspx.

You will need the district code and your student’s ID number to sign up.   The WCPSS school code is 67500.

The CES Grounds Committee would like to invite you to participate in the Fall Grounds Clean-up Day to help beautify our school.  We’ll meet in the kindergarten playground on Sunday, October 29th at 1:00 pm and assign gardening tasks.  We need lots of parent and children volunteers to:

  • Spread mulch (10 cubic yards)
  • Weed and Prune (main entrance near carpool drop off and Butterfly Garden)
  • Spray paint water tables in Paw Patch
  • Help paint seating for the Paw Patch


 Sunday, October 29th, 2017

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Parents can bring: gloves, wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, pruning shears and a bottle of water.

Everyone can participate and help beautify our school.  Thank you to all our volunteers!  Questions?  Call Carla Delcambre: 919-538-8739

CES Grounds Clean-up Day: Sunday, October 29



Last Chance for WCPSS Volunteer Registration!

If you have NOT registered to volunteer, but would like to at any point this school year, you are running out of time.  Parents MUST be registered before October 31st, 2017. You may go to any WCPSS school between the hours of 8AM-4PM to register.

Reminder: Parents, if you were a volunteer last year, you MUST reactivate your account before 10/31 at your child’s school if you haven’t already and want to volunteer again.


Spirit Wear Orders….Coming Soon!

PTA volunteers were sorting our T-shirts and realized there were some mistakes made by the vendor. The vendor has been notified and is working to fix our order. We have been told T-shirts will here by next Friday, October 20th.

We apologize for the delay! Thank you to all who have ordered spirit wear!  We appreciate your patience.

Save the Date Reminder: Grounds Day!

One of the ways parents, and children alike, can come together and help the school is by working at one (or both!) of our two Grounds’ Days throughout the year.  The first one coming up is on Sunday, October 29th! Please make room in your schedule to donate some of your time and energy to this cause.  Volunteers will meet at the school between 1-4 PM.  CES does not have a regular grounds crew to meet the many, diverse needs of our grounds, so it really does depend on us to make sure all of the upkeep and beautification jobs get cared for on campus. 

Many hands are needed! And remember, this is a great opportunity to volunteer if you stay busy during the weekdays and find it hard to contribute as much as you’d like to our school!  It’s also a great way to work together as a family to show off your Cary Cougar Pride for our school and want it it to look its best for our students.

If you can, please make all efforts to join in!  Please see the sign-up genius for specifics of items you could bring to help the cause go as seamlessly as possible.


Thank you!
