Families as Partners in Learning

Thank you for your overwhelming participation in our last round of parent-teacher conferences. These conversations are a critical tool in understanding your child's progress, as well as how you can support your child at home. You truly play an essential role in your child's education, and moving into this last part of the school year it is our goal to help all of our students achieve their highest potential. Together we can finish the year strong!

Our Fun Run Fundraiser Starts Next Week!!

We are excited to kick off our Julian Curtiss Fun Run fundraiser on Tuesday, 3/30. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for resources to enhance learning in this unique year and to strengthen our school community.

Our school has always relied on fundraising to provide exceptional opportunities to enhance student learning. And this year, we have more needs than we’ve ever had before, which means we need your support more than ever.

We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at Sharing IS supporting!

Just as we worked to safely begin school this year, we are also safely hosting this essential fundraiser based on our school’s current guidelines. We can't wait to get started!!

Key dates to remember:

  • Donating Opens - 3/16

Register on FUNRUN.COM, SHARE, & GIVE!

  • Fundraiser Kick Off - 3/30

  • Event Day - 4/8

We are grateful for our Julian Curtiss family! Thank you for your support this year. We all need it!
