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

It’s hard to believe that in 4 weeks we will be wrapping up our 2021-2022 school year. In some ways it seems like the start of the year was in a different lifetime, and in other ways it seems like it was just yesterday! This year brought us a lot of challenges and adjustments, but if it taught us one thing it’s that our students are resilient and flexible!

As we head into the month of May, our staff will continue to focus on keeping our students engaged in their learning as well as having fun. We know our Corron community will finish this year strong!

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!

District Equity Audit

As part of the district’s equity audit, students, staff, and families have been randomly selected to participate in focus groups to give them an opportunity to share their thoughts on our district’s strengths, areas of need, and long-term opportunities for providing the best educational experience for all students. The focus groups will be led by our partners in the equity audit process- the Consortium for Educational Change (CEC). If you were not randomly selected to participate in a focus group and would like to provide written responses to the focus group questions, please visit the District 303 website and complete the intake form with the email address used in Home Access Center (HAC). Once your email has been verified, you will be sent a link to the questionnaire.

We thank you for your commitment to equity in education, and we are excited about this next step in gathering the voices of our district so that we can create a comprehensive plan.

Mother's Day Craft Bag Sale for Charity

Four of our 5th grade girls are selling Mother's Day craft bags to the students at Corron. They have put together bags filled with materials to make a present for their mom, grandma, or aunt. There will be three craft levels to choose from. They will be holding this sale the week of April 25-29 from 7:45-3:00. Each craft bag is $1.00 and all proceeds will go to Cal's Angels charity.
