Team Curington: One Team, One Goal
Hello, Curington Families!
We hope you had a fantastic weekend. Below you will find important campus information and events coming soon. This Monday, we are continuing to recognize Hispanic Heritage Month. All students, staff, and community members are welcome to join us in wearing Hispanic Heritage cultural attire for this Monday, September 25, 2023.
We would like to invite our CES community to save the date for our upcoming Walk-A-Thon (WAT) hosted by our Curington PTO. The event will be held on October 11, 2023. This is an opportunity to have some family fun and to also support this year's PTO annual fundraiser. All the proceeds support our students, campus, and community. If you are interested in volunteering, below you will find our link to sign up. A huge thank you to our CES PTO and WAT coordinators for the behind-the-scenes planning that has already taken place.
Contact our front office team for any additional assistance needed. Thank you for choosing Curington Elementary as the place for your child to learn and grow.
