    Principal’s Message

    Week of 12/11/17

    Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

    To keep you informed each week you will receive a brief School Messenger call from me providing you with relevant school information for the week and important upcoming dates.

    Our Coyote Communication folder is sent home every Friday. Look for this folder with important information and please send it back to school, emptied, on Monday of each week.

    Vision, Hearing, and BMI screenings are scheduled for December 11th. Per State Requirements, every student in Kindergarten, first, and third grade, will have a vision and hearing screen and a height, weight and BMI completed. If you would like your child excluded from any of these screenings, a written request must be sent to the School Nurse before the screening date.

    Our monthly School Advisory Council meetings are held the second Thursday of each month. Although the council is our school’s governing board, everyone is invited to attend to hear about our school improvement initiatives and progress, as well as have an opportunity to provide input. This month’s meeting is on Thursday, December 14th from 7:15-8:15AM in the Media Center. Join us to hear from teachers and students about two of our important focus areas, Science and STEM.

    Don’t miss our Tropical Holiday Chorus Concert on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. where you will see the amazing magical, musical talent of our chorus students.

    Please support the Student Council Canned Food Drive which benefits the Ready for Life charity. Send food items to your child’s classroom by December 15th.

    Would you like to bring a little holiday cheer to a Curlew Creek child this year? Take a tag from our Coyote Angel Tree located in the front lobby. All gifts should be wrapped and placed under the tree by December 18th. Please remember to attach the tag so we know which family should receive the gift.

    Get ready for holiday dress up days during the week of December 18th. More details are located on our website.

    We are still in need of gift wrapping elves on Dec 19th and 20th. Please go to our sign up list for available time slots, or contact the PTA. If you are able to donate ribbons and bows, please drop them off in the school office.

    Yearbooks are now on sale! Get yours at the early price of $20 through January 12th. After that, the price will go up to $25. Look for the flyer that went home in Friday's communication folder.

    Stay tuned to our school marquee, our school website, Curlew Creek PTA Facebook page or our PTA website to keep up to date with school happenings and events.

    Thank you for your support!

    Principal Brickley
