From the Principal

Corron Parents;

These past two weeks have been surreal. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve really wrapped my head around everything yet. Things are changing on a daily basis, and there are so many unknowns. But here is something I do know: we have an amazing school community. Our students have rallied and found ways to make learning at home work for them. They have had the opportunity to engage in creative activities, get outdoors more, and connect with family. Their smiling faces in their photos say it all. Our parents have stepped up to juggle the roles of being a parent, a teacher, and often a full time employee. Many of you have multiple children engaged in at-home learning. It’s not been easy. Yet you are doing incredible things with your children - we see it! Please know that our staff appreciates all of your efforts to support the work we are doing with our students. And know that no matter what, the things you are doing are enough. The most important thing right now is that your children feel safe and loved. School work can wait if what your child needs is a snuggle at that moment (or if that’s what you need!).

Most of all, I am amazed at what our staff has put together for students in a very short period of time. Two weeks ago, most of us had no idea what Zoom was or how to create a Google Hangout! The amount of learning teachers have done to create quality learning experiences is astounding. For many of our teachers, they too are trying to juggle being a parent, supporting their children with their learning, and planning and supporting their own students all at the same time.

I’ve come to realize over these weeks that we work and live in a community of superheroes - students, parents and staff included. But even superheroes need a break. So next week, turn off the Chromebooks, set aside the math materials and journals, and just enjoy being a family. Take walks, play games, have dance parties, and snuggle on the couch. These are the things that we all need in order to reset and move forward. We will see what these next 9 days bring for us, but I know that no matter what, our community of superheroes will be ready to go on April 6th.

Wishing happiness and good health to all of you!

Mrs. Balaskovits
