The 2017 Corinna Elementary School Title One Summer program was a huge success. Title One students participated in a four-week program designed to support and enrich learning in all areas of academics. The staff incorporated engaging, hands-on learning in literacy, math, P.E. and art, while teaching about insects, reptiles, sea life and environmental art. Students had the opportunity to participate in exciting community programs through the Newport Cultural Center and L.C. Bates Museum. Corinna Elementary School would like to recognize Ms. Moulton, Mrs. Steiner, Mrs. DeRaps, and Mrs. Chapman for showing students that the summer program can be ‘so much fun’.
In addition to the Title I summer program, students who will be starting kindergarten in the fall attended five weeks of "Kindergarten Jump Start". This lively, interactive program teaches students phonological and phonemic awareness, and overall school readiness, as they embark on the road to being readers.
The Corinna Elementary School would also like to recognize, Ms Applebee, Mrs. Otis, and Mrs. McDaniel for getting kindergartners ready for school and Mrs. Hawes and Mrs. Hardy for completing assessments and supporting the summer school staff.
An Open House for this year has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 23rd from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. This will all be followed up with classes beginning on Tuesday, August 29th. Corinna Elementary School is located at 42 Stetson Road.
