Welcome the Newest Members of our JC Learning Community!


This Friday, October 1st, we were able to hold the Kindergarten Ringing In Ceremony.


The Julian Curtiss Ringing In Ceremony dates back to 1991. It is very special for students to mark the beginning of their elementary school education with a symbolic ceremony like this. Their journey starts here at Julian Curtiss as small children just out of preschool and will continue for 6 years until they are grown-up children that are taller, smarter, and ready to take on the next chapter of school and life when they ring out in fifth grade.


The kindergarten students typically ring the school bell that was given to Julian Curtiss by the PTA to signify that they are beginning their education at the Julian Curtiss School of World Languages. This year they received their own individual bells to ring, which they can then keep as a memento of this special event.


There are some interesting facts about this group of students that will be part of the GHS class of 2034. First, there are 36 kindergarten students, 22 boys and 14 girls. There are 10 magnet students in this class who come to us from Cos Cob, Glenville, Hamilton Avenue, and New Lebanon.


As is the tradition at our school with the tagline 60 countries, 30 languages, One Great School some of our kindergarten students have been born in other countries or have parents born in other countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Cyprus, Honduras, India, Japan, Netherlands, Peru, Philippines, and Russia. Welcome to our Julian Curtiss family. The diversity of our children is recognized as a source of strength and a reflection of our world. We look forward to our future work with these students and their families.


Together for Safety and Learning,
