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!
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!
