Posted June 2, 2020



Thank you to the families and staff who came out to support our continuation car parade for our 5th grade students yesterday.  We are going to miss each and everyone so much! If you missed the livestream, here is the recorded version (was edited to improve audio). I would like to thank Jaala Sheldon, Jen Grumann and Debbie Fimple for supporting the drive through continuation.  Thank you to the PTA for the continued support of our community events. It was a wonderful celebration! 

The school year is almost over and we are saying “so long” to our students, staff, and parents for the summer.  It has been a fantastic year in many ways, filled with events that have brought us closer together. We would like to thank you for your ongoing support throughout the year.  We could not offer such a rich education to our students without the continuing effort and support that you all give, whether we provide the learning opportunities in person or remotely.  Cory values input from families – and we want to hear from you! Parents are important partners in the learning environment and community of Cory. Due to the school system moving to remote learning, DPS will not be sending out the  annual DPS Family Satisfaction Survey this year.  However, we still want feedback to find ways to improve not only remote learning, but all our systems to support students.  Please use the following link to provide feedback. 

I would like to take this opportunity to wish those students and families leaving us this year all the best in their new schools and homes.  As we near the summer, I want to wish you and your family a safe and enjoyable summer vacation.
