Veterans Day Celebration: A Day to Honor All Who Served

Posted on: November 15th, 2016 by Admin

Cornerstone welcomed over fifty veterans to our Veterans Day celebration on Friday, November 11, 2016. Preschool students sang “You’re A Grand Old Flag,” and “This Land Is Your Land,” along with presentations from elementary and high school students. Cornerstone dad, Sergeant Ezequiel Mora, was our guest speaker. Sergeant Mora spent time in Iraq and Afghanistan stationed with the U.S. Army as a Paratrooper.

Each veteran who attended was honored with an introduction, and Kindergarten through twelfth grade students gave high fives to the veterans on their way back to class.

Mrs. Debbie Dwyer, Cornerstone preschool director and events coordinator, worked with Miss Sarah Kloster, Cornerstone fifth grade teacher, on a video for this special occasion where students answered the question “What does it mean to honor a veteran?” Check out the video below!

1st Place Win for Cornerstone at Sycamore’s Pumpkin Fest Parade!

Posted on: November 1st, 2016 by Admin

Cornerstone’s float won the 1st place trophy in the non-commercial division of the Sycamore Pumpkin Fest Parade on Sunday, October 30, 2016! The theme of this year’s festival was “A Parade of Pumpkins,” and Cornerstone’s float featured “A Parade of Pumpkin Sports” set up as a locker room/field house with pumpkins painted to look like soccer balls, basketballs, and volleyballs. Cornerstone offers these sports along with track & field for junior high students, and cheer for junior high and high school girls.

Cornerstone junior high cheerleaders led the group along with student athletes in uniform, student fans, and parents who represented Cornerstone by wearing CCA gear. The back of our float featured a basketball hoop and students dribbled and shot basketballs as they walked in the parade. A big thank you to parent Mike Giuliano for working on the float carpentry and to each person who represented Cornerstone in the parade!
