Updating Student Info

If you have a change in household information over the summer, please call the office to update us. This could be a new address, new phone number, change in household members, etc.

Our phone number here at the Elementary School is 654-2960.

Can Tab Update

To date Corinth Elementary has collected approximately 632,000 can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and the tabs are still coming in!

The Ronald McDonald House receives approximately $1.04/lb. This is roughly $500 that we were able to donate to them this school year!

The deadline for turning in tabs this year will be Friday June 8. The winner will be announced the following week with a pizza party for the winning classroom.  Right now Mrs. Delaney’s second grade class is in the lead with Miss Stacey’s third grade class catching up… Who will get the pizza party?

Thank you to everyone who donated tabs to our school for this great cause. 

Important Message From Mrs. Briner

There are new health regulations for the 2018-19 School Year. NY State now mandates that all students entering Gr. K, Gr. 1, Gr. 3, and Gr. 5 must have a physical completed before entering school in September. Be sure to call your child’s physician to set up an appointment for that.

Also, all students entering Gr. 6 must have a Tdap immunization before the beginning of the school year.

If there are any changes to your child’s health history over the summer, please call the school and leave a message on my voice mail. I will be checking my messages periodically over the summer. 654-2960 x1115.

Note from the School Library

As the school year comes to a close, please look for any lost library books that you have. Make sure they are all turned in before the end of the school year.  Please pay for any lost or damaged ones. Notices and letters have been sent out.

If your child does not turn in all of their library books by the end of the year, their report card will be held in the office until we receive the book or the money owed to replace the book. Thank you.
