Principal’s Post

Dear McCornack Families,

We are enjoying the fall weather at McCornack and glad to have your student here.  We have four phrases we often say to students about the work they do here:

This is important.

You can do it.

We won’t give up on you.

I believe in you.

We would love to have the audio of your voice saying one or more of these phrases.  We could use it to encourage students and specifically your student.  Please feel free to record and send me your voice saying it.  You could record it and email it to me at  We will use it throughout the school. You can also come into the office to do a recording of your voice on our iPad in the office.

Hoping all is well with your family.  Please let us know your questions or concerns.

Ms. Londa Rochholz, Principal
