Fall Fest
Join us at our annual fun family fall fest event.

Friday, September 7, 5:30-8:00 p.m.

We are so excited for this year’s Fall Fest!  What a fun way to kick off the school year with one of the most fun evenings of the year!  Just a quick reminder this is a parent run event.  Without volunteers the games and rides will not be available.  As in years past, each family attending the fall fest is expected to volunteer one shift to make this huge annual event a continued success. Luckily that leaves plenty of time to enjoy the night with your family! This year we are unable to rely on youth volunteers as heavily as we have in past years so we desperately need adult volunteers.

Please take a moment to visit the signup genius and volunteer for one shift, or email our volunteer coordinators and they will happily get you signed up.

Without your help this event will not be a continued success!


New Families

Are you new to the Corinth Elementary community? Do you need help figuring out what a Dragon Dad is or how to navigate the car line? It isn't always easy learning the acronyms used at a new school or where you can turn to for information. We've tried to make it easier for our new families by giving you a contact. Mandy Starr will help answer your questions or point you in the right direction when she can't.

Please feel free to reach out with any Corinth Elementary question, big or small. Email 
ALBinOz2003@yahoo.com or Phone 913-972-4360

2019 Corinth Auction

Save the Date and Get Ready for the 2019 Auction
It's an auction year!  Did you know that the Corinth Auction is our school's primary fundraiser? The funds raised by this event help cover educational programs that are not funded by state or district budgets. This year's event will help fund a part-time school counselor - which we have not had in our building in over five years. It will also continue to help fund our math aide, Maker Space, and other services that help our staff continue to provide educational excellence for our children.
So...how can you help? There are several opportunities to get involved and help this event be a success:
  • Do you own or work for a company that would be interested in advertising to the Corinth community throughout the year?  Check out our corporate sponsorship levels  here and get in contact with  Sheila Weaver to learn more.  New this year, there is an opportunity to sponsor BOTH the auction and Dragon Dash at one time....don't limit your promotion - have it run all year through!
  • Do you have connections to get items that would make great items to bid on or do you want to help us gather items to bid on the night of the auction? Get in touch with our  donations committee to see how you can get involved.
  • Be on the lookout for information on the upcoming parent parties and how you can start contributing to the auction the evening of your party!!
Finally, make sure you are a member of the  Corinth Auction Facebook page to get all of the updates and of course, mark your calendar and plan to join us on Saturday, March 2 at Milburn Country Club for a great evening with friends raising funds to support Corinth!

Looking for Committee Chairs

We're still looking to fill two chair positions. We need a volunteer to coordinate the Skating Parties as well as a chair for the Talent Show. If interested, please contact Leanne Beezley. If we don't find chairs soon, these events may not be able to happen. Please help out if you can!!

Staff Appreciation

We can’t wait to adorn our hard working teachers and staff this year with special monthly treats! The Staff Appreciation Committee is in charge of providing the following to our amazing staff:

  • Chalk the sidewalk for the 1st day of Kindergarten (7pm Monday 13th)
  • Lunches 4 times a year (back to school, Holiday lunch, Spring lunch and Teacher Appreciation week)
  • Winter cookie exchange
  • Birthday treats for the staff
  • Special drinks and snack during Parent Teacher Conferences and special busy days!

And all you have to do is sign up to help bring food items!  This is a great way to contribute to your child’s school without having to donate your time!  If your on our list we will ask for you to bring items 4-6 a year, which can be as simple as a bag of apples or as elaborate as homemade cookies or crockpot taco meat. Please consider helping make our staff feel appreciated by helping the Staff Appreciation Committee. Contact Jessica Felton:  Jessica@aisleten.com
