Cornell Academy Pledge

I am a successful and responsible student.

I put good effort into my class work and homework.

I smile at least once a day.

And I will persevere at home and in school.

I know for me to succeed it is up to me!

Happy Spring from Thomas Cornell Academy.


Many enthusiastic parents and guardians  attended the parent workshop presented by the reading and ENL teachers on Friday, February, 12, 2016.  Our topic was "How to help your child learn at home."  Parents learned about their children's DRA scores and the importance of supporting literacy skills at home.  Parents made story cubes to use with their children to reinforce comprehension after reading.  

Starting off the new year right...Students and parents of Thomas Cornell Academy received many new books in order to build their home libraries.  Books were donated by the Family-to-Family charitable organization.

Thomas Cornell Academy showed their school spirit during the week of February 8-12. 2016.
Monday was bring your favorite stuffed animal to school day.
Tuesday was wear your favorite sport shirt day.
Wednesday was dress wacky day.
Thursday was twin day.
Friday was pajama day.
All enjoyed the spirit filled week!

The students and staff at Thomas Cornell Academy voted on a school mascot, go owls!
