    Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

    Wow! Can you believe this is the last week of school!

    The last day of school is Thursday May 24th. Students will be dismissed at 12:35. Please make arrangements for this 2 hour early dismissal. Reports cards will be sent home on this day. Report Cards may not be distributed early. If your child will be missing the last day of school, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope with two stamps and it will be mailed to you.

    The last day for backpacks will be Tuesday, at which time school papers, books, and large items will be sent home with students.

    At the end of this school year, we are saying good-bye to Coach Malinski! We thank coach for all of his years of service to Curlew Creek and wish him well as he moves on to his next journey!

    Testing has concluded and we do have an Open Campus this week! Yay!

    Congratulations to our school! The Alliance for a Healthier Generation announced that Curlew Creek has again been named to the Alliance's list of America's Healthiest Schools by achieving the 2018 Silver National Healthy Schools Award!

    Congratulations to our amazing PTA for being recognized with 4 awards from the Pinellas County Council PTA!! This is a huge accomplishment and we could not be more proud.

    Yearbooks were delivered this week so make sure to check your child's backpack. We have a few extra for sale at $25. If you would like to purchase one, please send in your payment along with your child's name and teacher. This will be a first come, first serve basis.

    PTA would like to thank all of our Curlew families for a wonderful year! Thank you for those who supported us and volunteered at any of our events. We greatly appreciate it and look forward to working together next school year!

    All library books are now overdue. Please turn in yours as soon as possible. If you need to pay for a lost or damaged book, cash only can be accepted at this time.

    How can you help to keep learning in progress during the summer months and prevent the summer slide? Take a look at all the great learning opportunities that Pinellas County Schools has to offer, which can be accessed through Clever.

    Also, it’s no too late to enroll in the Summer Bridge program at

    We have an enormous amount of items in the lost and found – coats, jackets, backpacks, lunchboxes, etc. If your child is missing something, please take a look to retrieve your items. All left over items by the last day of school will be donated.

    PTA will be continuing the summer clothing drop off. A bin will be located outside of the school front door if you wish to donate used dress code clothing that your child has outgrown.

    Speaking of dress code, at the request of students, our school advisory council has approved the addition of two shirt colors – solid black and solid gray – for the 2018-19 school year.

    Thank you to parents who have joined our 2018-19 School Advisory Council. We are seeking additional members. Please complete a SAC membership form if you are interested or call/email Mrs. Brickley or Janet Martin.

    The new school year for our scholars begins on Monday, August 13, 2018. Meet the Teacher is on Friday, August 10th at 12:30-1:30 for grades 2 through 5, and 2-3PM for PreK, Kindergarten, and grade 1.

    I want to thank our families, students, and staff for a very successful school year! And I want to thank you for your ongoing support! I wish you a safe and adventurous summer, and I look forward to seeing you in August.
