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

Our new school year is off and running. Students have done a great job of learning new procedures and expectations. Academics are up and running, and our longer specials classes with the addition of Empower are a big hit with everyone. Having these breaks throughout the day gives students opportunities to take movement breaks as well as use different thinking skills as they engage with their peers. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read through the information about our new Empower class, please take a minute to check out the exciting units each grade level will be engaging in (see below).

Corron Curriculum Information

Our “Curriculum Night'' this year will again look different. Classroom teachers will be sharing a presentation via email next week. They will also send a link to a survey that can be filled out after viewing the presentation. Teachers will address questions in their weekly newsletters and/or through personal communications.

You can also look for links to introductions of our “specials” teachers and support staff to be shared in next week’s Coyote Tales.

Empower Information

Empower is our new special that K-5 students will experience twice a week. Each experience will focus on building the competencies through play, where students will work in partners, small groups and large groups. Teachers will explicitly focus on the SEL standards and competencies through real world, hands-on learning. Teachers and students will model and role play to solidify their understanding and ability to utilize the competencies such as problem solving, communication, teamwork and conflict resolution. The experiences will involve students using these skills to design, build, imagine, wonder, collaborate and connect. Student choice and reflection are highlighted in these experiences. The experiences are flexible, allowing the teacher to respond to the students needs and interests based on the individuals in their class.The experiences will look different based on the grade level and the interests of the students in a particular group. There are 8 modules in the program, but differ based on the grade level:
  • Make it to the End!--Chain Reactions and Crazy Contraptions
  • Get Out and Play! --Game Play and Design
  • Make it Move! --Coding and Robotics
  • Show it Off! --Drama, Video Production, and Media Tools
  • Light it Up! --Circuits and Electricity
  • Get on Board! --Skill Development Through Game Play
  • Build It! --Creative Construction
  • Make a Difference! --Problem-Based Learning to Help Your School or Community (or entrepreneur experience)

Additionally, we have a site for parents to learn more about the modules. It can be found here.
