    Week of 10/15/18

    Dear Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

    A reminder that there is no school for students tomorrow, Monday October 15th.

    Thanks to the families who attended our All Pro Dads breakfast meeting, School Advisory Council meeting, and those who joined us for our Move-a-thon!!

    What a fun day we had on Friday at our Move-a-thon. It was great to see our coyotes running, skipping, wheeling, and dancing with their friends, family, and Cody Coyote, our new mascot. Thank you to all who have helped your children to raise donations towards our $30,000 goal. We are doing great and are over half-way there! Donations can still be made on-line or brought into school until Friday October 19th.
    ✓ Monster squishies are awarded at $25, $50 and $75.
    ✓ Those who raise $100 or more will get to enjoy a pizza party at the park in November.

    Due to the inclement weather this week, we had to move our Walk to School event to this coming Wednesday October 17th. We’ll meet at Forest Run Park at 7:50am and walk to school at 8:15am.

    After school on Wednesday is our Park Clean-Up at Forest Run Park. Students and families can work together to help keep our park clean.

    It’s not too late to sign up for our Trunk or Treat event on October 26th. Registrations and candy can be dropped off at school in the front office.

    The Enchanted Reading Bookfair will run from November 1st through November 9th. Family night will be Wednesday, November 7th from 5:00-8:00pm in conjunction with PTA craft night! This year, NO CHECKS will be accepted at the Bookfair. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
    The bookfair needs volunteers!

    If you would like to sign up for the bookfair, please visit our PTA website or Facebook for the volunteer sign-up link. See you at the bookfair!!

    A message about safety – It has come to our attention that there are a number of students unsupervised after school at the park engaging in unsafe behavior such as hiding in the bushes on the trails. Please make sure your child knows to go directly home after school unless you have a supervision plan for them at the park.

    Be sure to continually check updated information on our school website ( such as the link to the school district safety resources, mentor training, attendance messages, reporting an absence, and how to connect your child to their Personalized Learning Platform (PLP).

    Stay tuned to our school marquee and our websites (Curlew Creek and PTA) to keep updated with school events throughout the year. For a full list of events for the school year, please visit our website or get a paper copy in the school office.

    Each Sunday at 5PM, you will receive a School Messenger call/email from me with information for the upcoming week. You can also find the information from my weekly calls on our school website under principals’ message.

    Thank you for partnering with us in your child’s education!
