Dear Julian Curtiss School Community,


The first trimester of the 2021-2022 school year has gone by quickly, and it has been both an exciting and a busy time. Thanksgiving is upon us and there are only 42 days remaining in the 2021 calendar year. Wow!


We at Julian Curtiss have at least 241 reasons to be thankful! Our Julian Curtiss students are the BEST!


During this time of Thanksgiving, Mr. Hartigan and I want to share our gratitude and thank you for being such an important part of our school community! This is a wonderful time of the year to celebrate and be thankful for all the wonderful people in our lives. On behalf of the Julian Curtiss staff, we would like to thank you for your continued support and wish you all a safe and happy holiday. There will be an Early Release Day on Wednesday, November 24th and we will see everyone back here on Monday, November 29th.


Sincerely,


Mrs. Trish McGuire, Mr. Matthew Hartigan and the Julian Curtiss Staff

FAMILIES AS PARTNERS IN LEARNING

WE WANT TO HELP BUT YOU KNOW YOUR CHILD BEST


When it comes to knowing how your child is progressing in school, you have several puzzle pieces to put together. You know what makes him/her light up and what causes him/her frustration. Report cards reflect your child’s effort and progress toward learning goals but there are other tools teachers rely on to determine students’ grade level. All of these pieces are important to understanding your child’s progress and achievement so you can support learning skills at home. Please complete this questionnaire by Monday, November 30th. The questionnaire is available below in electronic format. Just click on the link for your child's classroom. If you need a hard copy please contact the office or your child's teacher.


Thank you for your partnership!
