    Principal’s Message

    Dear Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

    I want to give a SHOUT OUT to our Science Olympiad Team led by Mrs. Scalia who would have participated in the state competition last weekend. They have worked hard all year long!!! Great work, team!

    An update on Summer Programs:
     Curlew Creek will host Virtual Summer Bridge for grades K-4. Registration is now open at
     Extended School Year (ESY) for our Curlew Creek exceptional education students (ESE) will be virtual through Pinellas Secondary School.

    Get ready for Virtual Field Day this week! Starting Monday, look for the “Coyote Virtual Field Day” flyer on your grade level P.E. Team page! There will be different field day activities to do every day! Wear your designated class color while doing your activity. Take a picture of you in your class color doing some of the activities and send them to the PTA website so we can share them!

    Curlew Creek’s got Talent and we need you! Please take a video of your student’s talent that is two minutes or less in length and email it to Ms. Steratore or Mrs. Brunelle. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Wednesday, May 20th is Virtual Spirit Fancy Day – Get out of your comfy clothes and dress to impress! Post your pictures to our PTA Facebook page and tag using #virtualcoyotestogether.

    This is the last week for students to make up any missing work for the 4th quarter. Please follow up with your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

    Our PTA wants to say “Thank You” to all our families for your support this year. We want to ensure all families who ordered yearbooks that they will be delivered over the summer. As the yearbook company was closed due to COVID-19, we are awaiting word on a delivery date. As we learn more, we will keep you informed via Newsletter, Facebook and School Messenger.

    Students are invited to have a Car Parade for their teachers as they pick up their classroom items. Decorate your cars, make signs for teachers and staff, and drive through the BUS LOOP at your designated time to wave to your teacher and receive your belongings. And please return your library books at this time, too!

    Remember to:
     Make a sign/poster and decorate car for parade.
     Put student name card in the window.
     Return library books in a bag.
     Have trunks popped open for materials.
