This week’s Paw Prints from Principal Katie Grassa:

  • Snow: Families we are asking that you keep your children off the lawn and away from the snow during arrival and dismissal each day. This will assure the safety of all students as they enter and exit the building during these slippery winter months. We appreciate your support in holding all Curley community members accountable to this as well.
  • School Showcase: Thank you to all the families who volunteered for our School Showcase events. We had one of the largest turnouts in the city and were proud to show off the great teaching at the Curley K-8. A special thank you to Kristin Jurkoic, who coordinated the volunteers for each event.
  • School Site Council: Please join us for our SSC meeting on Tuesday, January 14th from 5:30pm-7:00pm in the Upper School Library.
  • K-5 Open House (Parent Conferences): On Thursday, January 16th from 5pm-7pm Curley Lower School staff will offer an evening time for parent conference. Please be sure to schedule a time with your child’s teacher if you have not already had a conference with them this fall. The middle school (grades 6-8) will have a similar event on Thursday, January 30th from 5-7pm.
  • Support the Curley K-8: There are several opportunities for families to help support the Curley K-8 School.
    • We have less then 50 days to go to finish our fundraising for the school playing field. If we do not meet this deadline the building of the playing field will be delayed for an entire year. Please help us to meet our goal so that the start of SY2014-2015 we will have a brand new playing field. For more information about the field and fundraising campaign, visit playingfield.curleyk8.com.
    • We also have to Curley representatives running the 2014 Boston Marathon. Dan Barcan, parent, is running to support the playing field, if you are interested in donating to his race please visit dbboston2014.squarespace.com.
    • Alisa Ferro, Curley 6th grade ELA teacher, is also running the Boston Marathon to raise money for Tenacity. Tenacity is a FREE afterschool program for our middle school students that focus on literacy and tennis. Ms. Ferro’s fundraising efforts will help us to continue this program in the upcoming years.
