Coat Drive: A HUGE thank you to the families who have donated winter wear to our Curley Coat Drive! Kids are going home every day wearing coats, hats, mittens, and boots that you have so generously donated. We accept donations throughout the season so, please, keep up the good work and spread the word! Donation boxes can be found in the upper and lower school lobbies.
If your child is in need of winter clothing, please let his/her teacher know. Families should also feel free to take what they need from coat drive racks. School staff can direct families to racks as requested (not to be confused with the lost and found).
Thanks, again, Curley community for caring about one another!
