Eagle's Nest

The official e-newsletter of Corona Elementary

March 6, 2022

Dear Parents,

As we enter March, we can start to see the end of the 2021-2022 school year right around the corner. With this nearing the end of the school year, comes Parent-Teacher Conferences which will take place March 14-18. These meetings, which will be held via Zoom, provide an opportunity for parents and teachers to discuss the progress that has been made after two-thirds of the school year. Part of this discussion will entail an update on the diagnostic results from iReady which were administered to students in February. The third of four scheduled tests will provide specific information regarding students' academic growth in Reading and Math. Teachers will also provide updated grades in all areas via the report card. This important discussion should provide parents with some essential information to work in partnership with their child and teacher to establish some specific goals for the end of the school year. Said goals are sure to provide students an opportunity to successfully start the 2022-2023 school year.

Corona Eagles SOAR to Excellence

Safety—follow school rules and directions given by adults

Organized—have assignments, agendas, and school supplies organized

Accountable—accept responsibility for your actions, learn from mistakes

Remember to follow the SOAR guidelines in the classroom, restroom, computer lab, library,

Parent Teacher Conference Week is March 14-18

We will be holding parent conferences during the week of March 14-18. Teachers will send a Google Form link asking parents to sign up for a parent conference. It is important that parents make every effort to attend a virtual parent conference via Zoom with their child’s teacher. At this conference your child’s teacher will review with you your child’s report card for the second trimester and share important information about how your child is progressing and how you can help your child at home. Teachers will also share how your child is performing on assessments including i-Ready in ELA and Mathematics, lexile level, progress on books read and points earned in Reading Counts. We appreciate the support of our families working in partnership with us.

Eagle Eye On...

This month, we have our Eagle eye on...

Ms. Ana Rizo

Office Assistant

Hello, my name is Ana Mari Rizo. I grew up in Imperial, a small town located in the far southeast region of California known for its agriculture. I attended school in the Imperial Unified School District where I graduated from Imperial High School.

I grew up in a low income family with very supportive parents. Living in a small home and being the second youngest of six sisters, I attended school in the Imperial Unified School District where I graduated from Imperial High School. Right out of high school I moved to West Covina and attended Cal State Fullerton where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communications. I was the first in the family to earn a college degree.

I am currently on a short term contract with OMSD supporting the front office at Mariposa Elementary in the mornings and here at Corona in the afternoons. I love being able to interact with students and staff as well as being able to help our Corona families. One of the many things I like about Corona is its vibrant and welcoming school culture. I am so thankful that everyone at Corona has taken me in as one of their own.

I have a wonderful family of my own. My amazing husband Josh and I have two children. My oldest, Joshleen, is currently an eighth grader who enjoys playing in the mariachi, sports and drinking boba. My youngest, Joshua, is a very active 2nd grader. He loves taekwondo, wrestling and video games. I also have a 10 year old cat named Winnie. We spend our free time attending sporting events such as hockey and baseball. We enjoy going to the Ontario Reign and LA Dodger games. We also like to spend time with the family at Knott’s Berry Farm and Universal Studios.

If I could give one piece of advice to parents, it would be to take advantage of the resources available to all the OMSD families. The Parent education center offers free classes to learn English, typing and courses to help our kids do better in school.

Congratulations to our February Reading Counts Leaders!
