Dear Families,

I am absolutely thrilled to share with you the news that Cornerstone received an Innovation Award from the Minnesota Association of Charter Schools this week!  We were recognized for our school-based mental health program, which provides opportunities for children to receive support for their emotional and social needs and brings mindfulness practices into our environments.  We all owe particular gratitude to Kevin Jewell for leading our program, and to the entire staff for their work in integrating mental health services into the fabric of our daily lives.  Congratulations!

There are so many exciting events coming up in our community, not including all the end of year activities to come!  On May 19 Early Childhood families are invited to come for an afternoon of gardening and preparing the outdoor environment.  Please let me or Kara know if you’ll be joining us.  And then May 20 is our Literacy Night.  More information can be found here; please let Zitlali know by Monday if you’ll be attending.  This will be a wonderful way of celebrating the children and celebrating books!  We will have many books available for families to take home for the summer and invite you to bring ones you’re finished with to share with others.  And the next night, May 21, is our CMES Annual Board Meeting.  Stop by the front desk to cast your ballot for new board members and join us at 5:30 in the multi-purpose room to hear from Board Chair Jean Melancon about the board’s activities this year.

We have heard from many of you, so far, on this year’s school satisfaction survey.  We appreciate your feedback and hope to hear from many more of you by Monday, May 13. Please let me know if you need the link resent or if you’d like a paper copy.

In next week’s Stepping Stones you can look forward to hearing about the children’s last week of school and ways for you to be involved!

Have a great weekend,
