HES PTA NEWS
The PTA continues to be active and a vital part of Huntersville Elementary School even during this unusual time. We have continued with normal tasks and purchases throughout the summer. The school is now in possession of cases of paper for each teacher, updated sets of Excel worksheets for students, new document cameras for new classrooms, and a communication platform called Parent Square. All of these have been made possible with your continued PTA support at Huntersville Elementary.
PTA will have two tents at the top/Bus parking lot of the school during the school's equipment pick-up on August 12th. We will be collecting parent PTA dues, selling HES spirit wear, and answering any questions for new Bulldogs and their families. We do need volunteers for this event. Please use the Sign-Up-Genius link below to sign up for a spot on Wednesday. We will show you how to collect dues/sell spirit wear once you arrive for your volunteer spot.
PTA membership is $6 per student. Please support our PTA unit with your 2020-2021 memberships, so we can continue to do the good work we have always done. If you prefer to pay your PTA Annual membership online we have a link below.

CMS Eats @Home
CMS School Nutrition Services is excited to introduce CMS Eats @Home!
CMS Eats @Home is designed to provide “fuel for remote learning” to CMS students.
Beginning August 11th, parents can preorder meal bundles that will include five days of breakfast and lunch for each student. Pre-ordered meal bundles will be available for parent pick up at the assigned locations or may be delivered to the student’s CMS bus stop. Parents will receive a confirmation email when placing an order. When picking up meal bundles, parents will need to provide the student’s name and student ID number or present their student identification card.
Meals will be charged to the student’s meal account based on their current free, reduced or paid meal status. Parents are encouraged to complete a 2020-2021 family meal application to see if they qualify for meal benefits. The online application can be completed by visiting our website at www.cms.k12.nc.us, clicking on departments, School Nutrition Services, Free & Reduced meals.
Students enrolled in Community Eligible Provision (CEP) schools will not be charged for breakfast or lunch. Parents do not need to complete a meal application if all students in the household attend a CEP school. For a list of CEP schools please visit our website at www.cms.k12.nc.us, click on departments, School Nutrition Services, Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
Meal bundles will be preordered using our current online payment system PayPAMS. Parents that have not previously registered their students for this service, will need to do so to be able to preorder meal bundles. There is no fee to the parent for using this service.
To sign up, parents will go to and click on the “SIGN UP NOW!” button on the home page. Select NC, then select Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. Create a username and password and enter your contact information. Add your children to your account.
Breakfast will continue to be offered to all students at no charge.
All students approved for free meals will receive lunch at no charge
Students approved for reduced price lunch will receive lunch at no charge. For the 2020-2021 school year, NC Session Law 2020-80, House Bill 1023 eliminated the 40 cent copay charge for students.
Paid students may purchase a five-day meal bundle for $15.00.
We will no longer provide free meals for all children who are 18 and younger because we are now operating under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). Meals will only be available to Charlotte Mecklenburg School students.
