    Week of 08/19/19

    Dear Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

    We had an amazing Meet the Teacher event last Tuesday and a very successful first week of school and we thank you for your part in that success!
    A reminder that class assignments are subject to change in order to keep classes right-sized and balanced.

    This week we will be practicing our first Active Assailant drill for the school year.
    These trainings are required monthly by state law. The trainings have been developed in coordination with law enforcement and school psychologists, social workers and counselors. They are age-appropriate and will be conducted under the guidance of your child’s teacher and other caring adults on campus. You can learn more about Pinellas County School District safety and security by visiting

    A reminder that school doors open at 8:15. If you drop off before that time, you will need to wait with your child until the doors open and supervision is provided.

    Breakfast is available daily for all students at no charge beginning at 8:15.
    Our Coyote TV Crew begins Morning News at 8:40, and instruction begins promptly at 8:45.

    An important message about car circle dismissal: It is imperative that you have your child’s hanging name tag visible upon entry into the car circle. If you don’t have your name tag with you, please park and come for your child. Thank you for helping to ensure a smooth, efficient, and safe dismissal process.

    To promote higher-education we are continuing our College Day Wednesdays this year. Everyone is invited to wear a college shirt every Wednesday.

    Picture Day will be Tuesday 8/27. Look for order forms to come home with your student this week.

    A message from Joyce Brown, Family Liaison: This year the PCS volunteer department has gone paperless. All volunteer applications must be completed on line at registration. Also, at this time we do not have parent lunch bunch scheduled. We are looking for a parent volunteer to coordinate this monthly event where parents may come to school to have lunch with their children. Responsibilities include obtaining level 2 volunteers to supervise and escort during our lunch periods. If you can help with this please call Joyce Brown at 724-1423, ext 2104.

    Curlew Creek has received national recognition! We have again been named a
    National PTA School of Excellence! This award recognizes schools for building
    strong family-school partnerships that enrich educational experiences and the
    overall well-being of students. Thank you for helping us to earn this recognition
    through your strong involvement in our school!

    SAVE THE DATE for Thursday August 29th for our 1st PTA General Meeting. This
    meeting will provide an overview of our PTA goals and mission for the year, as well
    as provide you and your student information about all the technology resources
    available both in school and at home. We'll share with you CLEVER and all the
    opportunities within. Dinner will be provided. Look for more details to come.

    Our Join the pack membership drive is underway, and our PTA would like to thank
    the 100 people who’ve already joined! Membership forms can be picked up at
    school or signup online through our website.

    Coyote Spirit wear shirts are now available to order on-line at Orders will be delivered to your childs’ classroom.
