Principal's Message

Greetings Corey Community,
 
As we begin the 2021-2022 school year I understand that many of us are nervous and excited about the upcoming year. This year, more than any other year, we will focus on building relationships with your families and we are committed to providing your children high quality instruction and social emotional support.  
 
This year we welcome our School Counselor, Mrs. Mena, our new PE Teacher, Mr. Rizzi, and several support staff who will ensure your children are safe and cared for throughout the day. 
 
I challenge myself, our support team, our staff, and each one of you to reach out to make new and renewed relationships with all our students, staff, and family members. It will be together that we are able to move forward and grow our Corey community.
 
As a staff and school community we will continue our journey in creating spaces that are equitable and celebrate diversity and inclusion. This year our teaching staff will engaged in a book study that focuses on the power of classroom talk. We are also implementing Cognitively Guided Instruction in Math. Math teaching and learning will look different this year as we are committed to encouraging our students to express their thinking in math. We will continue to differentiate our instruction in our Reading and Writing workshop models. The power and magic in our instruction is the personalized attention we give to one on one conferencing with students. 
 
We have seen globally there has been a presence of COVID variants, we will continue to work together to make sure that we are diligent with keeping ourselves and our students safe. 
 
I am proud to be your Principal and this year I commit to: 
·         Listening to you
·         Supporting you
·         Believing in you
 
 I am looking forward to a great year!
 
 
Yours in Education,
 
 
Ms. LaRonda L. Ortega
