Corron Mission Statement
From the Principal
Last Thursday was the end of the second trimester for elementary students. This school year is definitely flying by! There have been so many celebrations since students walked through our doors in August. It truly has taken a team effort of students, parents, and teachers to make this year such a success. I look forward to our continued focus on goals and celebrating growth over these next three months.
One thing you can do at home is to take some time to sit with your child next week to review his or her report card, looking for growth and discussing potential goals based on the teachers’ feedback. It is so important to have these reflective conversations as we work on our SEL goals of self-awareness and self-regulation. These are lifelong skills that all of our students will benefit from.
Report Cards will be available in HAC after 8:00 AM on Wednesday, March 11th.

Our Scholastic Book Fair has moved online this year. It will be available to families from March 8-21st! Mrs. Moriarty will preview the newest books and featured authors with students during their LRC classes March 8-12. Look for student wish lists and book fair flyers to come home one of those days.
Please check out our virtual book fair beginning March 8, here: https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/corron
Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the webpage to tour the VIRTUAL FAIR! Keep in mind that shipping is free for orders with only books totalling $25 (not including tax) or more. Books will be shipped directly to your home.
Our Classroom Wish Lists have also gone online. Instead of choosing a book for your child’s classroom, as you have at in-person fairs in the past, you may deposit an amount of money in your child’s teacher’s eWallet. Your child’s teacher will use the funds deposited in their eWallets to purchase books for their classroom. Please visit the Classroom Wish List here. Click on your child’s teacher’s name and you will be taken to their eWallet account. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Moriarty at email@example.com .

5 Essentials Survey
Dear Parents and Guardians,
District 303 participates in the annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey that collects feedback from our
students, teachers, and parents. Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will give
you the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness. The
responses will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide our
improvement efforts. All responses are confidential and will never be connected to you or your
The Parent Survey is currently open and will remain so through April 2 2021. To take the
survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey. As
part of this communication, we have included graphics of the login page with additional
information about how to access the survey. Most notably, make sure you enter Kane County
in the box for county even if your home or your child’s school is in DuPage County. This will
allow you to correctly select your child’s school.
All District 303 teachers, as well as students in 4 th through 12 th grades, are being asked to
complete this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or
students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. Teachers will work with students to
assist them with logging in and taking the student survey.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered
online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five
indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and
larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:
We value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your input.
