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

Research shows that encouraging free movement can give children space to develop self-awareness, learn non-verbal ways of communicating and to get to know themselves and their body. Children learn their range of motion, balance, muscle strength, coordination, and endurance. Movement also helps children with their ability to regulate their emotions.

Within our school days at Corron, we build in opportunities for students to move during their specials, at recess, and within their classroom learning. It is very rare to see students sitting at their seats for an extended period of time. Teachers allow for flexible seating throughout their classrooms, giving students control over where they are engaging in their learning during the day. Our PTO has supported us in installing multiple sensory paths throughout the building. As we head into next year, we will be building in more ways for students to move and explore with the addition of our Empower class as well as more time for Art, PE and Music.

It is also imperative that students are moving in different ways outside of their school day. It is important not only to their ability to focus in school, but their ability to learn about life. Consider the ways that your child moves and other opportunities you might be able to give them to explore the world. The attached graphic has some great ideas for movement and the skills and characteristics children build as they engage in the world around them.

From the Health Office:

Dear Parents,

With cold and flu season upon us, please keep the following tips in mind for staying healthy this winter. This will help to control the spread of infectious diseases at school and allow your child to be available for learning.

Tips for Staying Healthy:

· Frequent hand washing by students and staff.

· Frequent cleaning and sanitizing of shared items.

· Good health habits such as adequate sleep, exercise, water and nutritious food.

Students should remain home for the following reasons:

· For a temperature of 100 degrees or greater. Children should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school and not taking fever reducing medication to control symptoms.

· If diagnosed with a strep throat infection. Students need to be on an antibiotic for a minimum of 24 hours, fever free, and feeling well before returning to school.

· If your child has vomited or had persistent diarrhea in the past 24 hours.

· If your child has a heavy, moist, productive cough, chest congestion, or discolored nasal drainage.

· If your child has pinkeye (conjunctivitis). Students need to have completed 24 hours of medication, and have no visible redness or discharge before returning to school.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter concerning the health of our Corron Students.

Hello Corron Families! We are excited to partner up with Corron Elementry again this year for our just shave it event for Cal’s Ángels. March 14th at St. Charles North High School. Two ways to sign up, you can either be a shavee, meaning you can get an awesome buz cut for a great cause and raise money. Second way is to donate hair and raise money for a great cause.

Corron and Cals Angels will be honoring Ella Joy, Corron Coyote student at the event and at Corron. Here is a little update on Ms. Ella Joy’s battle with cancer:

We appreciate and thank you so much for all your continual thoughts & prayers for Ella Joy. She is treasuring every moment of her second year back to school post transplant.

Ella Joy enjoys playing the viola, indulging in fettuccine Alfredo from Maggianos, hanging out with Asaph her brother, and playing family games like 5 Crowns, Monopoly Deal & Mah jongg. And of course she loves her collection of squishies & all things soft & cuddly

Soon, we will be having a lot of appointments with endocrinology as she battles the side effects of high dose chemotherapy, total body irradiation, cranial radiation, and bone marrow transplant. Please pray for Ella Joy’s medical team at Luries to have wisdom & discernment as we decide the plan for her treatment as she turns 11 this year.

As always, it is our greatest hope that all cancer cells in Ella Joy’s body would be eradicated forever with no trace amounts hiding in her bone marrow or spinal fluid.


“For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord.”

- Jeremiah 30:17
