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

Corron families:

2020 has definitely been a wild ride for us all. While much of what has happened in our world caused anxiety and concern, there are still many positives that have happened along the way. Earlier this week, my supervisor challenged principals to reflect on something particular each day. Wednesday’s prompt was, In the year of the pandemic, the three things I am most proud of…”. The first thought that popped into my head was the way the Corron community came together to ensure that our students felt safe and supported, and that they were able to learn no matter where they were. Every member of our community learned new technology, figured out how to wear masks to stay safe, supported our children in following other safety guidelines successfully, and overall made the transition into our ‘20-’21 school year as seamless as possible - whether in a remote setting or in person. I could not be more proud of the way our Corron community came together to do what’s best for our children! Thank you for all that you have done to help make this happen.

I wish all of you a restful Winter break. Enjoy your holidays, your time with family, and celebrating the start of a new year. Bring on 2021!!

Stay safe and stay healthy.

Chris Balaskovits
