We are very excited that once again Duke Energy has decided to sponsor a $1,000 Honor a Teacher Award to a Cary Elementary Teacher.
Through the Cary Chamber of Commerce Honor a Teacher Program, anyone can nominate a deserving Cary Elementary teacher. This is a great opportunity to nominate a teacher, current or former, who goes above and beyond for our school, students, or community. Nominations do not need to be extensive but need to be submitted by March 16.
We feel incredibly fortunate to have such great community support as this is the only area we know of in the county that looks to support such an award for all the surrounding schools.
We are asking parents and faculty to nominate teachers for this award. Included with your nomination, please describe why you feel this particular teacher deserves this award. Nominations must be received at the Cary Chamber of Commerce no later than Friday, March 16th.
These nominations will then be narrowed down to five finalists that will be interviewed by a designated committee. We will honor all of the nominees and announce the recipient at a celebration at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre at Regency Park on Monday, May 14th from 6:00-7:30pm.
PLEASE MAIL OR EMAIL NOMINATIONS TO:
Cary Chamber of Commerce
307 N. Academy Street
Cary, NC 27513

This year at Cary Elementary, we are asking families to volunteer just ONE MORNING to help open doors at carpool from 8:00-8:30 am. Our carpool line needs several staff members to run smoothly and having one parent volunteer will allow a teacher to spend time tutoring students first thing in the morning. Check your calendars and sign-up to volunteer.
To SIGN-UP, please use the link below or visit our school website to see the volunteer schedule and pick your date! We look forward to seeing you in carpool!

Fifth graders are about to conduct their big hands-on arts project during the week of December 11th-15th. This week long project requires many helpers and this fifth grade class is especially large, so we need even more help than normal!
Parent volunteers of any aged student are welcomed and encouraged to come help out at any time(s) that they can during the week! Please check the sign-up to submit when you can come. Friday will be especially helpful since lots of glue gun work will be called for by that time.
As well, if you can’t come, or even if you can, we also need SUPPLIES:
- plastic bags (ex. grocery, shopping)
- fabric (scraps welcomed)
- general crafting supplies
Each project can use up to 18-20 bags! So you can imagine what that means for how many we need in a grade level with over 100 students! Please send in what you can, if you’re able.
Materials can be taken to Room 2314 (upstairs, between the 4th and 5th grades).
The Book Fair starts MONDAY! There are still openings to help make the Book Fair week and Family Night happen! Many workers are still needed!
- We’re still in need of craft and breakfast organizers, clean-up crew, face paint station supervising, bake sale organizing and more!
- As well, below is the sign-up to help the rotations throughout the Book Fair week happen. Jobs like helping individuals (or small groups of) students look for good-fit, high interest books are available as well as running the cashier during the day of Book Fair week. Openings after hours at Family Night are also available!
- Please come and support Book Fair Family night (Thursday, 11/16, 5:30-8 PM)! Bringing the school community together always brings out the best in us! Cheer on the Parent vs. Teacher Volleyball match. Purchase from the bake sale and/or book fair. Buy your child’s teacher a book off of his/her wish list! Enjoy the crafts! We can’t wait to see as many Cary Cougar faces as possible.
Please look at your schedule and see if you have some time to help make this event run smoothly!
Are you good at decorating? Arts & crafts? Hosting events? Grocery shopping? Supervising teens? Cleaning up? We need you!
There are so many jobs entailed in the Book Fair that extend further than just helping out with the Book Fair itself. To entice our shoppers in, we need some help the week prior with decorating! There is a breakfast during Book Fair week that needs someone to help buying the items and setting up. We have teenagers volunteering to face paint but we need a little help with supervising to ensure the process goes smoothly. Cleanup: There’s always clean-up. If you have the time, please consider helping make this event a success! Remember, there will also be a sign-up for daytime Book Fair help, too!
Please sign up here for whatever ways you can help out! Thank you in advance! We appreciate it!
