Corron Mission Statement

Corron is a safe, warm and inviting community where all are valued and empowered. We celebrate growth. Clear evidence highlights the impact we have academically, socially and emotionally.

From the Principal


Tomorrow Pick-a-Time opens for conferences, which will be held on October 6th and 7th. Teachers have been working with students to set goals for academics as well as SEL areas. Over the past few years we have transitioned from traditional teacher led conferences to student led conferences. This looks different depending on the grade level, but one thing that is similar K-5 is the focus on developing student ownership in their learning. Having students set goals and share them as well as monitor their progress is a powerful way to motivate and empower them. I’d like to encourage every family to sign up for a time to engage in this opportunity to hear their student(s) share their successes and goals for the year.

5th Grade Choir Update

Hello Corron families! There has been a change of events regarding our 2022-2023 Choir. My name is Alexa Molidor and I am a General Music teacher at Lincoln, Corron, and Wild Rose. Corron will now have its own stand alone choir and will no longer be combined with Ferson Creek. I am very excited to be directing Corron’s choir this year! Please see the letter attached below and click the link included to register. I hope to see many wonderful faces in choir this year!

Kick-A-Thon Fundraiser

Each year, the Corron Community and D303 proudly support the Kick-a-Thon. The Kick-a-Thon is an event that happens at the Cross-town Classic St. Charles North vs. St. Charles East football game, which will be on October 7th.We will be announcing some upcoming spirit days to help promote the event. Please visit this link https://store.d303.org/#!/products/BP7DCLHV5V to make a donation today!


This is the 28th annual Kick a Thon. We have raised over 1 million dollars to date. We are so excited this year to raise money for Fox Valley Food for Health, The Colette A Miles Foundation and The Justin Hardy Foundation.


This year the proceeds will benefit three charities:

Collette's Crew - The Colette A. Miles Foundation also known as Colette’s Crew offers individual support, volunteer programs, annual events, and corporate sponsorship’s to benefit and impact the lives of cancer patients and families. Our mission is to inspire and provide many avenues for individuals and businesses in the community to get involved and make an impact on others’ lives. Through The Colette A. Miles Foundation programs, events and financial support channels, patients and their families receive the comfort, support and courage to fight the battle.


You are Stronger #HardyStrong - Justin Hardy is a 2018 grad of St. Charles East High School and a early graduate of Wash U in St. Louis. Justin was a major force behind more than 70 wins while he was at St. Charles East. He was a starter for nationally ranked Wash U. In April of 2021 Justin was diagnosed with Stage 4 Stomach Cancer. Justin decided to attack this diagnosis like he would attack a defender on the court. The scholarship fund is for future student athletes who display the grit, determination and will that Justin has clearly demonstrated through these difficult times.


Fox Valley Food for Health - Fox Valley Food for Health promotes a nutrition focused community by educating teens and serving those struggling with a health crisis. They strive to keep the community educated, empowered, connected and nourished by providing an environment that is physically, socially, vocationally, intellectually and emotionally nurturing and empowering through nutritious food.
