Principal's Memo - January 25 - 29, 2021

you are essential

Hello Cornerstone Families,

I hope this message finds you happy and healthy.  Thank you for your continued support! Thank you for the organization and efforts put forth by our PTA and Booster to support our school!  Not only do we have wonderful families, but our teachers never cease to amaze me.  They are constantly preparing for pickups, encouraging their students, and always trying to create an engaging learning environment while remote.  

As you know, my favorite part of the day is visiting classrooms.  Today I enjoyed helping in a breakout room in Mrs. Rasmussen’s class where we talked about feelings.  I know it is a challenging time right now, but our little ones sure know how to look at things in a positive light.  Let’s keep that in mind as we model our feelings at home. It looks like we are going to get some cooler weather, so I hope you are able to snuggle in and enjoy your families this weekend! 

We remain on a pause for in-person instruction.  Our return date for our Hybrid K-2 students is February 16th.  Of course, anything could change, but we are preparing for a safe return.  There will be detailed information for Hybrid K-2 families coming soon. 

Please reach out to me if you need anything or have questions. 

All my best,
Dr. A
