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

Corron Families:

Thank you to all of the parents that were able to attend our two Open House events. It was so nice to connect with parents as they toured the building. It was just what we all needed! Our next opportunity to have parents in will be our conferences scheduled for October 7th and 8th. Students will be a part of these conversations as well. Please see the information below to sign up for a time to meet with your child’s teachers. You can choose a remote conference or an in-person meeting.

Enjoy your weekend!

Chris Balaskovits

Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, October 7 & Friday, October 8.

Parents/Guardians may schedule an in-person or a Zoom conference. This is an opportunity for students, parents/guardians, and teachers to focus on setting meaningful goals. Teachers will be working with students to review their strengths and areas of improvement prior to the conference. Grade level teams will let parents/guardians know if students should attend the conference. Students will then set goals and brainstorm ideas to reach those goals which will be shared at his or her conference. In order to prepare for these conferences, please reflect on this school year so far. What has been a success for your child? What has been a challenge? How can you support your child with reaching his or her goals? The conferences will conclude with time for questions that you may have for your child or the teacher.

When parents are feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and burned out, it’s hard to show up in a way that best supports their child’s development, especially if/ when our kids are struggling, too. In this practical and actionable talk, Debbie shares ten powerful “tilts,” a.k.a. practical ideas to help parents shift their thinking, responses, and actions in a way that will help them feel more confident and peaceful as they parent their unique children.

October 13, 2021 - Supporting Kids Who Learn Differently: Back-to-School Edition, Zoom Webinar, 6:30 p.m. Debbie Reber, NY Times bestselling author

(Recording to be posted)

Click here to register!

School always presents certain challenges for students who learn and think differently (kids with ADHD, dyslexia, giftedness, autism, anxiety, or other neuro-differences). But the COVID-19 pandemic has created even greater obstacles. Debbie shares ideas on how parents can best prioritize and plan in the pandemic-era school landscape. She also offers advice on how to support differently wired children’s cognitive, social, and emotional needs during this atypical time, while also taking care of one’s own emotional health and well-being.

If you are unable to join us live, don’t worry - the sessions will be recorded so you can watch another time. Additional information about Parent University can be found here on the D303 website.
