Principal's Corner

Cornerstone at Pedregal

Principal’s Message

September 26th - September 30th

Greetings Cornerstone Families-

Another productive week at Cornerstone. We had a successful fire drill on Wednesday and once again students were well prepared. Awareness and practice is key to our safety. I cannot believe October is next week and this beautiful fall weather is amazing.   

I also have been focusing on being polite and helping students become self advocates especially when someone else uses not so kind words. Helping them with the power of ME!!! I am encouraging students to come and talk to me and I would love for parents to encourage this as well.

 

We also have Lunch Bunch with our school psychologist Ms. Amanda to help students with tools that will help them with social issues, build friendships and social/emotional skills. Part lesson, part facilitated play time, every Monday for Kindergarten and Tuesday for 1st-5th grade; open to all students who wish to come. 

Thank you-

Elisa Morreale
