Meet Mrs. Dutcher

Welcome to Room 002!

My name is Corinne Dutcher.  This year will be my 22nd year with Omaha Public Schools.  I graduated from UNO with my undergraduate and my first graduate degree.  I recently completed a second Masters Degree in Elementary Administration from Concordia University.  I have enjoyed being the summer school principal at Saddlebrook for the last 2 years!

I have been married to my husband, Tony,  for 20 years.  We have 2 children that attend Millard South High School.  Our son, Gregory, is 15, almost 16 years old and is a Sophomore.  Our daughter, Grayce, is 14 years old and is a Freshman.   My husband, also known as "SHAMBLES", is a Shrine Clown.  We enjoy volunteering our time as a family to help raise money for the Shrine Hospitals. At circus time, you will find us busy at every show doing what we do best....clowning.  

I look forward to getting to know all of my students and their families this year!

It's going to be a great year!

BIRTHDAYS

With increased awareness of food allergies, food safety and an overabundance of “treats” (sugary juices, donuts, candies and cookies) in our schools, I have decided to eliminate the amount of unhealthy snacks in the classroom this year.  Eliminating junk food in our classroom will have a positive effect on the students - I promise we will still celebrate and have fun!  Rather than sending donuts, cookies, or cupcakes to school with your child on his or her birthday, I have come up with simple and meaningful ways to honor birthdays in the classroom.  

*extra recess for the whole class 

*lunch in the classroom with a friend

*a game the class plays together, such as bingo or kickball

*dance party with music

*help a younger class during "specials" - PE, Music, etc. 

If you would like to bring something to celebrate your child's birthday, consider the following options:

*donating a book to the classroom library

*bringing a simple craft for the class to make

*donating a game to the classroom

*small goodie bags with stickers/activities given to each classmate

*trail mix made with healthy ingredients.  The students can have fun helping mix together cereal, dried fruit and other items for a healthy, fun snack

Thank you for your support!  Please feel free to email me with any questions, concerns, or additional celebration ideas!
