Corron Mission Statement
From the Principal
While we probably all knew that Thursday’s message extending our “stay at home” order was coming, it was still difficult to hear that message. Many of us were still reeling from last week’s extension of remote learning for the rest of the school year. To say that these are trying times would be an understatement. We will definitely all persevere and get through this experience, but life will be a little different as we emerge from the safety of our homes when the order is lifted.
While I’m typically a “glass is half full” kind of person, there have been some challenging days for me over these past weeks. In order to maintain a positive and healthy frame of mind, I have been focusing on gratitude. If you’ve listened to my Morning Announcements each day this week, you have heard me express my appreciation for things and people that I am grateful for during this time. I’ve also asked students to reflect on what they are grateful for. Next week, I would like to share their expressions of gratitude on our announcements. I’ve attached a link to a FlipGrid so that students can record a message for me. I would like them each to share one thing that they are grateful for as they shelter in place with their families.

I am looking forward to seeing students’ smiling faces in these videos and hearing about the things they are grateful for. I know it will make for brighter days next week for me to get a dose of Corron Coyotes!
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 will be online
Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 has moved to an online format that will open 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 3 SEL
Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. (The President and Fellows of Harvard College, 2020). This weeks SEL lesson includes strategies supportive of successfully completing assignments or tasks. One such strategy is Ready-Do-Done, a process children and adults can use to plan through the completion of tasks that may appear overwhelming. This weeks competency is:
Responsible decision-making: The ability to make constructive and respectful choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on consideration of ethical standards, safety concerns, social norms, the realistic evaluation of consequences of various actions, and the well-being of self and others.
We are asking students to identify and use strategies to manage emotions. Video clips and text is embedded to foster conversation. 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 (email@example.com or 331-228-6457).
