Updates from the Principal

Happy February!  The weather is playing games with us and we are enjoying every minute. I hope you are all able to enjoy it as much as we are here at school!  A few quick updates: 

  • PSF Character Strength- Our Personal Success Factor Character Strength for February is Social Intelligence, often defined as being aware of how your actions influence or impact others. We decided that Empathy and Kindness/Caring would be good themes for this month and are “spreading the love” by showing a variety of ways to be kind and caring to others.  Keep an eye on our Cory Facebook Page for snapshots of how our classrooms are celebrating this character strength and be sure to read more about each of the Personal Success Factors by clicking here.  We would also LOVE to hear how your family is “spreading the love” so please click HERE to send any stories and/or pictures to me so we can share and celebrate as a community!
  • Cold and Flu Season- While we are “spreading the love” through kindness and caring, we would really NOT like to share the love through spreading germs.  Please help us by keeping your child home if they have a fever, are throwing up and/or have diarrhea- and keep them home until they have been free of these symptoms for 24 hours. Now is a great time to refresh yourself on our Health Policies, so please click here to review.  Masking your child’s fever and sending them to school not only prevents your child from getting the rest they need, but also spreads the germs to other students and staff, continuing the cycle of sickness.  Thank you for helping our school stay as healthy as can be!
  • Budget Resources-
    • This 1-page handout contains some basic budget information on the front and some more detailed information on the back. 
    • This animated video, clocking in at just under 3 minutes, walks through how funds follow students, how those funds may vary based on student status, how student enrollment plays into the process and more. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

In appreciation,

Jennifer Harris, Proud Principal of the Cory Cougars!
