Corron Mission Statement:
From the Principal:
This week our students participated in Random Acts of Kindness week. Our student council headed up this endeavor, planning for activities throughout the week. They posted inspirational signs all over the building, greeted students in the morning, and shared kindness challenges each day (smile at someone, give a compliment, write a note to someone who has an impact in your life, sit by someone new at lunch, and pay it forward). Today, students were invited to wear orange and donate a dollar to the World Wildlife Fund - Australia to support with the damages to habitats due to the wildfires.
This event is supported throughout D303 and across the community. It is a great way to spread positivity and caring which is something that our young students can easily do to make a difference. If you’d like to learn more about the organization behind this event, you can visit the Random Acts Matter website at https://www.randomactsmatter.com/.

From the Secretary:
LRC Volunteers Needed:
Do you like books and have a couple of hours to spare every week? The LRC is in need of a few good volunteers to shelve books and assist students in finding and checking out books. If you can spare a bit of time and are interested, please contact Karen McVicar in the LRC at Karen.McVicar@d303.org. Thank You!
From Student Council:
Join us in spreading care and compassion during Random Acts of Kindness Week, February 10-14th! Corron will be focused on making the world a little better, one small act of kindness at a time, in partnership with the organization called Random Acts Matter. You can find more information at this website:https://www.randomactsmatter.com/rakweek . There is no better way to help your neighbor than to do something unexpected. This is the simple idea behind the formation of Random Acts Matter.
We will “Paint Corron Orange” on Thursday, February 13th. The color orange represents kindness as it combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. Student council would love to show kindness by making a donation to the World Wildlife Fund-Australia on behalf of Corron School. Therefore, all students are encouraged to bring $1 to wear orange on February 13th to celebrate making a difference in the world!

Corron and Cals Angels will be honoring Ella Joy, Corron Coyote student at the event and at Corron. Here is a little update on Ms. Ella Joy’s battle with cancer:
We appreciate and thank you so much for all your continual thoughts & prayers for Ella Joy. She is treasuring every moment of her second year back to school post transplant.
Ella Joy enjoys playing the viola, indulging in fettuccine Alfredo from Maggianos, hanging out with Asaph her brother, and playing family games like 5 Crowns, Monopoly Deal & Mah jongg. And of course she loves her collection of squishies & all things soft & cuddly
Soon, we will be having a lot of appointments with endocrinology as she battles the side effects of high dose chemotherapy, total body irradiation, cranial radiation, and bone marrow transplant. Please pray for Ella Joy’s medical team at Luries to have wisdom & discernment as we decide the plan for her treatment as she turns 11 this year.
As always, it is our greatest hope that all cancer cells in Ella Joy’s body would be eradicated forever with no trace amounts hiding in her bone marrow or spinal fluid.
“For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord.”
- Jeremiah 30:17

Middle School Intra-District Transfer Form
Middle School Transfer Requests
Families who wish to submit Middle School Transfer requests may do so beginning February 3. The request form will be available on the District 303 website through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want transferred. Requests are granted based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
Please download the form below.
