Hello from Curtis Principal, Sonya Pitcock

Cougar families,

Thank you to everyone who helped with Valograms, staff breakfast and staff treats this month! We have such a wonderful and supportive community and we appreciate all you do! We are also excited about our Eagle Run numbers and are looking forward to seeing everyone on race day!

We are closing in on the end of the 3rd quarter. This is typically one of the hardest quarters for students, so be sure you are checking in with your children, checking Skyward and reaching out to teachers if you have concerns or questions. We want to finish this quarter strong as we move into the last part of the year.

March 4 will be an early release day for students at 12:35 p.m. We will be serving lunch for all students. Buses will run at the early dismissal time of 12:35 p.m. Spring Break will follow the early release Friday. We hope everyone has a great break!
