Weekly Update

This is a message from Corwin International Magnet School.
The March PTO meeting has been postponed for one week due to the Varsity Basketball City/ County Championship game.   Please join us for PTO on the second Tuesday of March at 6:30pm.  The PTO meeting  has been rescheduled to Tuesday, March 10th at 6:30pm.

Due to the recent snow days, Corwin will begin state testing for 6th, 7th and 8th graders on Tuesday morning.    4th and 5th graders will be tested the following week.   This year, state testing will be done on computers and require students to use headphones.  The school has headphones for students to borrow,  but we especially encourage middle school students to bring their own headphones for comfort and for hygiene.  Please do not send blue tooth or expensive headphones. We  understand that testing can be stressful for students. Please help us keep kids relaxed with positive, encouraging words. 

Parents of 8th graders.  Please make sure your child has returned the  form indicating the high school he or she will attend next year.  We need to get information ready for 8th graders transition including honors course placement.   These forms were due on Friday but now are due on Monday.

There will be a meeting on Thursday,  March 5th at 6 p.m. for  8th grade parents who would like to help with the 8th grade end of the year activities.  We need coordinators who will support these activities.  

There will be a World Travel Club  meeting on Monday,  March 9th at 6p.m  for students traveling to Europe in March.  This will be our final meeting prior to travel.

Corwin International will be hosting a Health Awareness event on April 8th in recognition of World Health Day.   We have several community groups committed to on this day including the Pueblo County Health Department and other health professionals.  The event will take place in the afternoon on April 8th. 

The International  Baccalaureate  World organization will be visiting Corwin on April 9th.  We are looking forward to hosting the visiting team.  

Have a wonderful week.
