April 2018

Corinth Elementary School

Spring is in the air! Remember to send your child to school with warm coats and boots if needed. Classes go outside every day for recess, weather permitting. Our nurse does not have enough extra jackets and sweatshirts to go around so please be sure to provide the proper attire for your child. Thank you.

Our March Literacy month was packed full of many wonderful reading experiences from mystery readers to DARE to the many creative reading posters that were turned in. A special Thank You to the Hudson River Community Credit Union and Saratoga National Bank for contributing prizes and for displaying some of our posters.

Mark your calendars!  A reminder that our Rainbow Classic will be held on Tuesday, June 19th with a rain date of June 20th. This event is for students in grades 1-5. Please be looking in your child’s folder for more information on this day. This is always a fun day for students and their families. We hope you can make it!
