Corron Mission Statement
From the Principal
It’s hard to believe that we are headed into the last three weeks of the school year. I know it’s been a long haul these past six weeks of learning. Our students have been troopers through it all, and your support has gotten them through some tough times. I know many are starting to fade. Please continue to encourage your children to stay engaged in their classroom activities all the way through until the last day. It is so important for them to keep their minds and bodies active
Please make sure you are reading all of the communications that will be coming your way in these next weeks. I will be sharing our process for student material pick-up during the last week of school. I will also be able to share the resources that will still be available for student learning throughout the summer
As always, continue to reach out with questions or concerns.
Stay well, and give your kids a hug from me tonight!
Student Material Pick Up (more information to follow)
Friday, May 22
Last day of Remote Learning for 19-20 School Year
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 in now open online
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 has moved to an online format that has opened on April 27. In years past, parents completed the necessary paperwork in paper format. This year, all acknowledgments and authorizations are contained in a single electronic, online registration form that will be easily accessible from most electronic devices (computer, Chromebook, and Smartphones).
Beginning April 27, parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form using their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials, select individual students, and complete their registration. The form will be located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website.
Registration fees for elementary and middle school will be available in Pushcoin beginning April 27, and billed to reflect the early bird discount of $10.00 if paid by May 22. High School fees will be available in June. For families who may qualify for a fee waiver, and are not directly certified by the state, a 2020-2021 district fee waiver application will be available on the District 303 website in July, accessible from the Parent/Community menu.
Please pass this information on to newer families in our Corron community.
Week 4 SEL
This week's SEL lesson focuses on perspective taking; The ability to look beyond your own point of view, so that you can consider how someone else may think or feel about something. To do this successfully, you must have some understanding of others' thoughts, feelings, motivations, and intentions.” (Socially Skilled Kids, 2020). There are activities embedded in the presentation for students and adults. The five developmental stages of perspective taking; age 3 through 15+ is interesting and helpful to understanding this social-emotional competency.
Social awareness: The ability to take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical norms for behavior, and to recognize family, school, and community resources and supports.
The challenges and uncertainty facing families and children are impactful on overall mental health and well being. We are hopeful the resources shared will be a support to parents/guardians and children. If you have any questions on the information provided or are seeking additional support for yourself or child, please contact Patti Palagi, Director Instructional Interventions (firstname.lastname@example.org or 331-228-6457).
