Dear Families, 

After a very busy and challenging two weeks, it’s been nice to have a quiet, normal week of school.  


Parent Partnership

This Monday, November 16, is our monthly Parent Partnership at 5:30pm.  Megan Riemer, Cornerstone’s Literacy Specialist, will share the "Big 5 Reading Skills" and how we teach and practice those skills at Cornerstone.  Please join us at this link!


Give to the Max Day 

Thursday, November 19, is Give Minnesota’s Give to the Max Day.  Donations to Cornerstone help us fund programs like school-based mental health (work with our social workers), literacy and math interventions (Megan and Amber), and so much more.  Your contributions are so appreciated.  If you can give this year, please visit this website.  If you would like to receive our quarterly fundraising newsletter, or share it with a loved one, please email Chris to be added to the distribution list.


Park Visits

Park visits will continue through November, with a slight twist!  Please click here for more information from Liesl.  


November 25 Attendance

The day before Thanksgiving is often less well attended than other days that week.  With most of our families distance learning at home, we would like to have a sense of your plans to participate on November 25.  Please click here to complete our quick survey.  School will still be offered, regardless of the survey outcome, and marking your intention here does not bind you to that decision.  It just helps us prepare for what to expect that day.  Thank you!


Inside Out Screening

We are so excited to have the opportunity to watch Inside Out together as a community!  Next Saturday, November 21, at 4:00 we will gather on Zoom to start the film together, and regather at 5:45 for a feelings-share.  Popcorn will be in next Friday’s packet distribution (11-5:30) and a link will be sent out next week with more information about accessing the film.  We hope you will join us! 


Free Diaper Program

The Minnesota Cloth Diaper Bank loans cloth diapers to families looking to use a more environmentally friendly toileting option for their infants and toddlers.  Click here to learn more.


Have a nice weekend,
