Mr. Stanton Welcomes You Back!

Welcome Back Students and Families! 

We are excited to see you all at the upcoming Meet the Teacher event on Friday from 11:00 to 1:00 where you will not only get to see your classroom and meet your teacher, but also get a chance to meet my newest Cary Elementary Friend.  Stop by to meet him and take a selfie – I also hope you will help us name him 😊


New Chrome Book computers and charging stations are also ready for you in every classroom!  Have a good week and we look forward to seeing you soon.

 Mr. Stanton


Beware: Road Closure

Due to construction on the new Cary library and parking deck, there is a complete road closure of Walnut St. between Kildaire Farm Rd. and S. Walker St.  Please take this into account when planning your routes to and from Cary Elementary. The transportation department is also aware so buses can develop alternate routes as needed.  

Meet the Teacher Day: 1st-5th Grades

Please remember that FRIDAY, August 24th, from 11 AM – 1 PM, students are encouraged to come back to CES and meet their teachers! This is an exciting day around campus as we get to see old and new friends alike!

Teacher assignments will be posted on the main wall.  From there, students can go find their classroom and officially greet their new teacher for the year!  While in the classrooms, or in the Media Center, you can also register to Volunteer.  Remember, this must be done ANNUALLY and can only be done onsite on school computers and early on in the school year.

As well, around the main foyer and in the cafeteria, you will be able to:

(Tip: School supplies may be dropped off this day to help alleviate the first day’s load, if you desire.)

Kindergartners!: Popsicle on the Playground

Is your child about to start Kindergarten at Cary Elementary?  Is she super excited?  Does he have a few nerves? A combination of both?

We have an opportunity for him/her to come, get to meet some future friends and teachers, and a chance to play on their future playground during an all-fun, completely relaxed playtime! This event provides a great chance to let your little one experience CES before the school year begins for real!  Meanwhile,  the parents have a chance to learn a little more about the school as well.  It’s low key, but a wonderful opportunity to get a sneak peak into your future here.  We hope you’re able to make it!

PTA Job Open: Sponsorship

PTA needs volunteers to help with Sponsorship Committee. The person who did it last year can not do it for this coming year. She has the information to help whoever can step up and take on this important volunteer position.

Our Sponsors help pay for items in our school, teacher grants, cultural arts, book stop, etc. A bulk of the work gets rolling during the summer.

If this sounds like it might work with your availability, please contact Deena Fahy if you can help!

Thank you!

PTA Assistance Request: Hospitality Team

Are you looking for a way to celebrate our teachers year-round next year? The hospitality committee provides lunches and breakfasts for the teachers and staff each month during the school year. We’re looking for many additional hands and volunteers to join the team to help serve, setup and provide food to help fuel our teachers (they get short breaks so can’t leave the school to eat out). They are so appreciative and it’s a very rewarding and needed opportunity to help.

We’re planning for the year ahead now so please contact Michelle Smith at if you can join us for a little or a lot of the time.
