MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Hi Cory Families,
Happy Friday! The students found out today that the Leprechauns are coming to Cory next week from the student council. Students will be on the look out for leprechauns to save Cory’s gold.
The safety of our students is the most important aspect of our day. I am asking families to please follow our Kiss and Go expectations to make this area safe and effective for pick-up and drop-off. We have revised the safety guidelines at Kiss and Go because of the unsafe driving and jaywalking that is occuring. We are requesting parents to volunteer during pick up and drop off to support our mitigation efforts. If you are interested, please email Joan at email@example.com. Parents who volunteer will be provided training to support the traffic conditions at Kiss and Go. I am also asking families to be mindful of behavior when engaging with parent volunteers and teachers at Kiss and Go. We need to work together in a calm way to ensure the safety of all our students.
I have requested for the Denver Police Department to come to this area during dismissal to support the safety of our students, families, and staff. If we continue to see disregard for the rules, we will implement phase 2 which will be no parking on the opposite side of Kiss and Go. We hope that everyone will support our efforts in keeping dismissal safe!
A few reminders:
Have a wonderful weekend!
SAVE THE DATE:
How Sick is to Sick
. 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 come in to look for any items your children might be missing in the lost and found area. It is overflowing with coats, mittens, water bottles and other miscellaneous items!
We could use a little help from parents to go through the lost and found area and help us get it organized.
EVERYTHING will be donated to Clothes for Kids the week after Spring break!

Cory/C3 Math Team with Pi Q Math (7 week program ONLY)
Join the Cory/C3 Math Team with Pi Q Math! Team members will meet Friday mornings to strengthen their problem solving skills and deepen their understanding of important mathematical concepts. Children who participate in at least two sessions during the school year will have the opportunity to practice for and participate in at least one math competition. The contest will be administered during the camp time and at Cory, no travel is required. Math competitions have helped thousands of kids understand that math is not about blindly following rules but about solving complex and deeply satisfying problems. They have generated excitement, energy and pride in excelling in mathematics. Your child’s success in math competitions is a very good reflection of their deep and flexible understanding of the key concepts taught in elementary school mathematics.
