Curtis Chronicles

August 15, 2022

Welcome from Curtis Principal, Sonya Pitcock

Cougar families,

We are so happy to see our students in the building! We missed them this summer, but like all of you, we enjoyed the summertime with our families and friends. We have started off the year strong and our new 7th graders are already finding their way around the school! Our theme this year is Be A Champion and your students are already off to a great start. We have seen kids asking for help, helping each other, making new friends and getting to know their teachers. As we continue this year, we will celebrate successes and support each other through challenges as every championship team does. We want to partner with you to help ALL our students grow and succeed as you are a part of the team too.


Parents, please remember that the front of the school is for buses only from 7:30 – 8:20 and from 3:30 – 4:15. It is illegal to pass buses when they have their stop signs out and are loading students. For the safety of our students, please follow these requests.

We look forward to a great year!


Sonya Pitcock
