Corbin Intermediate School – Striving To Be Our Bestby Bill Jones on 08/09/16
As Principal of Corbin Intermediate School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year, my 15th year with this learning community and my 35th overall in education. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms. It is our mission to help every student become the very best they can be, and we look forward to partnering with parents and the Corbin community to achieve it.
As we embark on the new year, I want to take a moment to reflect on all that we accomplished last year. We’ve made great progress in our quest to ensure students have the foundation they need for success throughout their educational careers. We continue to be recognized as one of the leading schools in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
However, our successes go beyond easy-to-measure indicators. As we continue to move forward under our state’s new, more challenging academic standards, we are seeing so many positive changes. Our students are thinking critically and finding solutions to complex problems. We see rich discussions in classrooms and deep thinking on the content students read and the concepts that they learn. They are making connections that we’ve never asked them to make before. These outcomes are going beyond the standardized test – we are truly preparing students for life after school.
We look forward to building on these successes and making even more progress this year. We have added Spanish, a Makers Lab and Gateway to Technology to our class offerings and will expand our Project Based Learning curriculum.
Our work is not easy. But Corbin Intermediate School is a community of professionals. We all – teachers, principals, school counselors, support staff and the many others working with us – are collaborating in pursuit of our shared mission. We all have important roles to play in helping children reach their full potential, and we are proud to join forces in support of our students.
Of course, families and other community members also play a critical role in this endeavor, as partners in supporting both your students at home and our work in the schools. We look forward to getting to know you and hope that you will feel free to visit our school and truly become a part of our school family.
Corbin Intermediate School is a wonderful learning community. I feel so privileged to be a part of it. This is a very special place, and my colleagues and I appreciate the trust that you’ve shown in us by sending your children here every day. We will do our best to ensure they have a fulfilling, happy and safe year.
