As we begin the month of May, we reflect on a year of many challenges, but also a year of collaboration, dedication, grit and hard work. With Teacher Appreciation Week beginning next week, we would like to take a moment to acknowledge our incredible staff! This year pushed our thinking, and made us come up with creative and engaging solutions! Countless hours were spent planning lessons, learning a new platform (Seesaw/Canvas) and finding new ways of connecting with students. We would also like to thank our parents and guardians who took on an even more active role as co-teachers at home!
Teacher Appreciation Week
Our Corey Cubs PTA has planned a Teacher Appreciation Week to remember! We are so thankful for the support of our parents and community. Thank you for letting our staff know how much they are appreciated. The Decades of Appreciation Activities are listed below for anyone who is interested in participating.
third grade dance recital
In following our yearly tradition, our Third Grade students completed an integrated unit of Dance Around the World. They learned information about their specific countries, including a dance choreography. Virtual and in person dancers were able to perform a live dance recital over Zoom. This special event happens annually, and even though we may not have the exact set up as our previous performances, the students were very excited to perform in this setting! A huge thank you to all our talented Third Grade students, the Third Grade teachers, the Multiple Intelligence team, and Mrs. Evans for making this event possible.
second grade piano recital
Our Second Grade students have been working hard all year to learn their Piano Recital music. We are so thrilled that our virtual and in person students had an opportunity to shine, as they performed their musical pieces. Mrs. Phelps and the Multiple Intelligence team is finalizing a video that will include the live performances as well as video submissions. We are in awe of the dedication and commitment shown by our students, our parents, the Second Grade teachers, the Multiple Intelligence team and our amazing Mrs. Phelps. Thank you to all who made this event possible.

We are so proud of all our Corey Cubs who participated in the 15th Annual “What’s Your Big Idea?” Entrepreneurship Contest!

Way to go, Corey Cubs! Students could be a finalist in the Art Category, the Essay Category (or both). Students who are finalists in both areas are listed twice.

Three of our students won First Place: Jack C., Emmalyn T. and Chloe B. Congratulations!
