School Site Council: Please join us for our monthly School Site Council Meeting on Tuesday, January 9th from 5:30pm-7:00pm in room 209. Please enter through the CASP doors. We will be discussing the budget for SY 2018-2019.

School Parent Council: Please join us for our monthly School Parent Council (SPC) meeting on Wednesday, January 10th from 6pm-8pm in the Lower School Cafeteria. We will be focusing on math.

Martin Luther King Day: There will be no school on Monday, January 15, 2018 in observance of Martin Luther King Day.

Friends of the Curley Technology Campaign: As we begin 2018, we all have many reasons to be thankful. The Curley K-8 School is one-third of the way through a great school year with a diverse group of nearly 1,000 students, We celebrated a record-breaking Fall Fling and are all excited about the upcoming library re-opening.

During the New Year season, we are asking you to consider supporting additional needs of the school, specifically technology. Why is technology important in school? Beyond writing stories, students at the Curley K-8 school have used computers to calculate the velocity of a dog on skateboard, design persuasive presentations, to read books and articles that would otherwise be inaccessible to them, to learn coding, and to record and critique their musical and dramatic performances.

The school has achieved a 2:1 student-to-laptop ratio for 3rd – 8th graders, but we are still working to raise $16,000 to buy another mobile laptop cart to ensure our students are prepared for the 21st century.


In addition, some of the technology we purchased several years ago will soon need to be replaced. We can expect technology to be an ongoing fundraising area from year-to-year.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to Friends of the Curley K-8 in support of these important initiatives. A gift in any amount will help–please forward to family & friends, and any other potential supporters. Don’t forget to ask if your company “matches” charitable donations – we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. You can give in two ways:

  • Donate using PayPal by clicking here: PayPal.me/CurleyK8.
  • Send in cash or check to your child’s teacher or mail to: 40 Pershing Rd. JP, MA 02130 Attn: Curley SPC. Please make checks payable to: Friends of the Curley.

______________________

Estimadas familias y amigos de la Curley:

A medida que el 2017 llega a su fin, todos tenemos muchas razones por ser agradecidos. La escuela Curley K-8 ya lleva un tercio del camino a través de un gran año escolar con casi un grupo diverso de 1,000 estudiantes. Celebramos un Fall Fling sin precedentes y todos estamos súper entusiasmado con la próxima reapertura de la biblioteca escolar.

Durante esta temporada, les estamos pidiendo que respalde ciertas necesidades de la escuela, específicamente en el área de la tecnología. ¿Por qué es importante la tecnología en la escuela? Más allá de escribir narrativas, los estudiantes de la escuela Curley K-8 han usado las computadoras para calcular la velocidad de una patineta, diseñar gráficamente presentaciones persuasivas, leer libros y artículos que de otro modo serían inaccesibles, aprender a grabar su propia música y criticar constructivamente en la música de otros, grabar su actuaciones dramáticas, entre otros.

En la actualidad, la escuela ha logrado una proporción de estudiantes por computadora de 2:1 para los estudiantes de 3 ° a 8 ° grado, pero aún seguimos necesitando la cantidad de $16,000 para comprar una computadora portátil móvil adicional con tabletas para asegurar que nuestros estudiantes estén preparados para el siglo XXI.

Por otra lado, parte de la tecnología que compramos hace varios años pronto necesitará ser reemplazada.

Por favor, considere una donación deducible de impuestos a nombre de “Friends of the Curley K-8” en apoyo a estas importantes iniciativas. Un donativo de cualquier cantidad ayudará . Puede reenviar esta información a sus familiars, amigos y a cualquier otro posible interesado en donar. No se olvide de preguntar si su empresa “parea” con donaciones de caridad, ya que somos una organización sin fines de lucro 501 (c) (3).
Recuerde que usted puede donar de dos maneras posibles:

  • Done utilizando PayPal accediendo aquí: PayPal.me/CurleyK8
  • Envíe efectivo o cheque al maestro de su hijo/a o por correo al: 40 Pershing Rd. JP, MA 02130. Por favor haga los cheques a nombre de: Friends of the Curley.

¡Gracias de antemano por su apoyo!

Atentamente,
El Consejo Escolar de Padres y la Directora Grassa

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!
