Special thanks to Cornerstone Learning Community
COCA's card campaign continues! We are sending out BIG thanks to all the healthcare workers, administrators, and staff members who are tireless in their dedication to keep our community healthy and safe! We're working in partnership with local school art teachers and their students to collect handmade cards infused with gratitude and creativity. Today, we made a delivery of 150 cards to Capital Regional Medical Center. We hope these little works of art serve to inspire, uplift, and remind our healthcare workers that their tremendous efforts and personal sacrifices do not go unnoticed!
COCA thanks the art teachers and students at the 13 participating schools for their contributions to the card campaign: Sabal Palm Elementary, Gretchen Everhart School, Holy Comforter Episcopal School, Florida State University Schools - FSUS, Amos P. Godby High School, Springwood Elementary School, Swift Creek Middle School, James S. Rickards High School, Ruediger Elementary School, Cornerstone Learning Community, Lincoln High School, Fairview Middle School, and St. John Paul II Catholic High School.

This week's 🏆Nyckelharpa Student of the Week🏆is Miyoko Inouye!

Miyoko is 11 years old and in the 4th grade at Cornerstone Learning Community. Although she has studied piano at MLE for many years, Miyoko recently fell in love with the nyckelharpa while living abroad in Sweden. She has done an incredible job of learning the nyckelharpa on her own and has been joining the Advanced Violin Class at MLE on several of their fiddle tunes.

Here is a clip of Miyoko playing the traditional Irish fiddle tune, Swallowtail Jig.
This has been the most challenging of times for so many, and yet, in addition to caring for their own families and dealing with unknowable issues of their own, the Teachers of CLC have risen to the challenge of distance learning! Thank you for your compassionate, thoughtful, empathetic, and academically spot-on work with all of our kids.
You are a light in the murkiness of the unknown.
Thank you, thank you!
Thank you Cornerstone Learning Community for bringing 2nd graders yesterday to see our current exhibitions and making art with us in the ArtZone!
If you could write a love letter to Florida, what would you say? Even young Floridians like Dorothy from Cornerstone Learning Community know that our beaches are special.

MEET THE CAST of James and the Giant Peach Jr.!

Tucker attends Cornerstone Learning Community and says that if someone wrote a show about his life so far it would be called, "Tucker's Story."

We are so glad that MLP has been a part of that story, Tucker! And we can't wait to see you this weekend dancing, singing and mooing (Yes, mooing!) across the stage!

This show is sold out but mark your calendars for May and June to see Tucker and this mainstage cast in two other shows! Details to follow!
SOMETHING GOOD♥️ A 4th grade teacher in Florida came to America for a better life. She moved to the states from Jamaica to be a teacher.

Recently... she became a U.S. Citizen and her entire class showed up to support her and applaud her journey.

I went to a meeting this week that discussed the importance of social and emotional learning for children of all ages. The keynote speaker talked about the need to address this content not just tangentially, but explicitly, just like we teach reading and math. I'm so grateful that my girls go to a school that values learning about team work, collaboration, regulating one's big emotions, identifying the perspectives of others, relating to one another when we do not agree, problem solving, tackling challenges and handling frustration. What we learn about these skills in childhood impacts our adult lives in ways we will never fully know- from how we navigate challenges to the ways we connect with our partners at home and at work. What makes me the most grateful is that at CLC, social and emotional learning does not replace academics- it is accepted as a part of human learning that enhances academics. Thanks so much for all you do, teachers and admins, for valuing and teaching "human skills" each and every day.

A local school with a global mission. Inspiring & empowering compassionate, global learners. Find ou Private school with a public mission. Students at CLC engage in learning experiences aimed at cultivating life long learners in an environment that develops character through the relevant application of skills in the context of the real world.

Ukrainians and Russians in Tallahassee unite in condemnation of Vladimir Putin's war 03/24/2022

Ukrainians and Russians in Tallahassee unite in condemnation of Vladimir Putin's war

This article from WFSU is from late February, but it is a good reminder that while we witness the war in Ukraine from afar, there are people in our community (CLC's as well as Tallahassee) who are deeply impacted by Putin's actions.

We are honored to have two Ukrainian teachers on staff (Ms. Nadiia who is featured in this piece included) and stand along side them in support. We hope you will reach out and support those in your area who continue to feel the pain of these inhumane acts of war upon the people of Ukraine.

Ukrainians and Russians in Tallahassee unite in condemnation of Vladimir Putin's war Ukrainians and Russians in the United States are watching from afar as Russia wages a war against its neighbor. As the invasion enters a second week, Tallahassee residents with roots in the region say they’re angered, shocked, and saddened by what’s unfolding in Ukraine.

Hmmm. Sounds a lot like CLC.

Thanks, World Economic Forum. We agree.

Big congrats to these scholars for advancing to state in the National History Fair. The 8th graders placed first in the group exhibit category for their inquiry into debate and diplomacy related to the history before and after the landmark Roe v Wade decision. The 6th grader placed 2nd in the county in the paper division for his analysis of how debate and diplomacy played a role in the ultimately peaceful end to apartheid and transfer of power in South Africa. We look forward to the state competition. Dynamite scholarship.

From today’s incredible Community Sing: 4th graders singing “Salaam.” Salaam is a greeting of peace used, primarily, in the Middle East. The song is in Hebrew and Arabic, thus the “shalom” part. It was written specifically b/c of the conflicts in the Middle East, but it’s become a peace anthem around the world. The students dedicated their song to Ukrainians.

Congrats to two of our solar car teams for placing in design categories in the statewide 2022 Energy Whiz competition. One group placed 1st in their age group and the other placed 2nd in theirs. The next step is the awarding of their medals tomorrow at the Community Sing and then the upcoming solar car regional races. Let’s go, CLC!

On Fridays a few 5th graders join preschoolers to help w gardening class. In the Before Times we had book buddies in order to build multiage connections. And while we might do that again in the future, it is clear that the connections and relationships (and leadership) in the space of growing things in the garden will grow, ahem, roots and fruits for both age groups.

“We stand for peace and hope. We stand w Ukraine.”

To all of our faculty, families, and friends who are from and/or who have close ties with those in Ukraine, we stand along side you.

2/22/22 at 2:22 we celebrated 22 years as a school community by placing 3 time capsules. Every student contributed. It is set to be dug up on 04/04/44, another 22 year leap into the future. ABC and CBS were out there to help document.

Snippet from 4th graders’ practice session for the next Community Sing. The song they are working on is The Jamaican folksong, “Hill and Gully Rider.” This call and response tune dates back to the 19th century when it was sung as a work song. Here the students are playing the song on Orff instruments, which include xylophones, glockenspiels, marimbas, and metallophones. Fun fact: the students’ teacher is from Jamaica and remembers this song growing up.

Super job by our middle schooler on the National History Day projects. So many social justice and human rights focused projects including negotiations that ended apartheid, the Loving v Virginia case, WWII Internment Camp legal battles, Roe v Wade (did you know abortion was outlawed in the 19th century out of a fear that too many white women were ending their pregnancies? We do now thanks to these scholars!) and so many more. We look forward to seeing how our students who are moving onto county do on the 4th of March.

Today is the day! Take the night off from cooking and eat at Rankin Tacos. Make sure to mention Cornerstone to support our school! They're open until 8pm and have takeout or an outside patio for you to enjoy your meal. What are you going to order?! 🌮
