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

Thank you to everyone that joined us for our student conferences last week. It was nice to see so many families in the building over the two days. Our students had spent so much time thinking through their goals and preparing for their conferences - I could tell they were excited to share. This level of involvement in the conversations will have a positive impact on learning for each student.

Thank you for partnering with us to ensure success for all of our Corron students!

Veterans Day 2022

Veterans Day Celebration--On Friday, November 11th, starting at 1:30 p.m. Corron Elementary School will host a Veterans Day assembly to celebrate those individuals who have given so much for the freedom we enjoy. Our 5th grade students will lead our assembly to honor the veterans within our Corron community.

We need your help at home to prepare for this observance:

1. We would like to honor our veteran family members who have served, or are serving, in the armed forces. We will be creating a video slideshow of photos of our community veterans. We encourage you to email 1 digital picture of your veteran(s) to our LRC assistant: Please include what branch of service they were in and their relationship to our Corron student(s). Digital photos of veterans must be submitted by Friday, November 4th. (Please note: This is the absolute last day we can accept pictures. No last-minute pictures will be accepted this year.)

If you submitted a picture last year, and would like us to use it again this year, please email Mrs. McVicar to let her know.

2. If your Corron veteran is able to attend our assembly on Friday, November 11th at 1:30 p.m., please notify the office at 331-228-6900. We would like to send them an invitation and be prepared to recognize and honor them appropriately!

Thank you for supporting us in showing appreciation for those who have given so much for our freedom.
