MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Hi Cory Families,
Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful long weekend. Please remember that there is no school on Monday and Tuesday next week. We will see students back on Wednesday.
A few reminders:
Hi! This is Emilio Eslan, the principal for the day.
I wanted to share my experience leading Cory today. I was able to support the safety drills today, and our students did a great job at following all the procedures. I helped with recording announcements for next week and organized students to support in that. I also had to look at the CMAS schedule to determine if our schedule was efficient for testing in April. We also did many observations, and I am impressed with the amazing work our students and staff do everyday! Thanks!
Have a wonderful weekend! We will see everyone back on Wednesday!
SAVE THE DATE:
I hope you have enjoyed the beginning of the New Year and your families remain healthy. We are looking for new volunteers to add to our chicken volunteer list.
Student grades 1st – 5th, need to be accompanied by a trained volunteer to care for the chickens.
We are hoping to get more parents, grandparents, or other old siblings involved in our program to get each grade level into the coup daily, Monday – Friday (maximum 3 students per class).
What is involved in becoming a volunteer?
If you are interested, please contact Skeeter Buck – firstname.lastname@example.org or text 415-845-5447.
Please make sure to check out the lost and found area. It is overflowing with coats, mittens, water bottles and other miscellaneous items!

Enrichment Pre-Registration Information
In an effort to better support the families of DPS we have created this Pre-Registration Information sheet to help prepare families for registering for Spring Session Enrichment classes which run from April 5th, 2022- May 27th, 2022
General Information For All Families
ELCS Scholarship Policy
Each Community Partner offering classes has a class specific scholarship policy for their programming that we hold them accountable to, and Extended Learning and Community Schools will award the scholarships for each class based on these policies (i.e. one class may offer 1 full scholarship for every 10 paid enrollments). ELCS policy will be to prioritize students enrolled in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program and/or students who are receiving support or services through DPS’ Homeless Education Network (HEN). Students who have already received scholarships this year will be placed on a waitlist for scholarships for this session so that more students can have access to programming.
For families that would like to explore this option please contact our Enrichment Systems Specialist at email@example.com
Discovery Link Families: Please note your request will be processed as a credit to your account for future use.

In Canada in 2007 a group of 12 grade students saw a 9th grader who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.
They knew they had to be upstanders because bullying is never ok.
They decided to buy a bunch of pink shirts and hand them out to other students to wear.
By the end of that week, most of the students in the school were wearing pink shirts to show support for the Grade 9 student who was bullied.
Now it Cory’s to turn to show that bullying is never ok
Wear your pink shirt on February 23rd !
