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’s Field Day will be held on Tuesday, May 25th with a rain date of May 26th. Each grade level 1st - 5th will be assigned an hour with our PE teachers to engage in fun and safe activities. Teachers will be adding in other activities throughout the day, including a collective art project with Mrs. Hubbs. Students will participate in the activities with their own class, rotating through stations.

Below are the time slots for each grade level. Parents will be invited to be spectators during this time. We will be setting up a spectator area and asking parents to follow our district safety guidelines.

Our remote students will be participating in their own virtual Field Day, supported by Mr. Navis and Mrs. Dieter. This information will be shared with remote families this week.

From the Secretary

It has come to our attention that over 70 parents are not receiving texts from Corron's ParentLink. If you did not receive the latest text sent out on Sunday, 5/2 regarding the PTO Teacher Appreciation week, this is an indication that your number is being blocked from Corron's ParentLink.

We have found out that the SMS # is being blocked on these phone numbers and the way to resolve it is to contact your phone carrier for them to update this.

From the Health Office

Any concerns or paperwork that needs to be turned into the Health Office can be sent to this updated email address:
