Curtis Elementary

  • mR. oWEN rOSS, Principal


     

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as Principal of Curtis Elementary School and I am honored to work with our students, staff and parents.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you and working in partnership to ensure a successful school year for your children and the community.   Our staff is committed to helping each child grow, academically, socially and emotionally.

    My primary goal as principal is to provide each student a safe, secure learning environment that is rigorous, effective, and engaging.   I ask for your support and participation by encouraging your child to read every night, monitor their homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they have learned at school each day.

    We invite you to become an active participant in our school community by volunteering, joining our PTO, attending English Language Advisory Committee meetings, School Site Council meetings, Coffee with the Principal meetings or our S.T.E.A.M. and literacy events.   This year we will be opening our Curtis Parent Center as well as participating in the Family Leadership Institute.

    I am very excited to be the newest member of the Curtis Colt family and to continue on the path of success.  I look forward to working with each of you and your children as we work toward an academically successful school year.

    ¡Bienvenidos al año escolar 2018-2019! Tengo el privilegio y oportunidad de servirles como su nuevo Director en la Escuela Primaria Curtis y es un honor para mí trabajar con nuestros estudiantes, personal y padres. Espero con anticipación conocerlos a todos y entablar cooperación para asegurar un exitoso año escolar para sus hijos y la comunidad. Nuestro personal está comprometido en ayudar a que cada niño progrese en lo académico, social y emocionalmente.

    Mi meta principal es proveer a cada estudiante un entorno protegido y seguro que sea riguroso, efectivo y conectado. Les pido su apoyo y participación motivando a su hijo a leer cada noche, monitoreando su tarea y progreso y pidiendo que su hijo comparta lo que ha aprendido en la escuela diariamente.

    Los invitamos a que sean participantes activos en nuestra comunidad escolar sirviendo de voluntario, uniéndose al PTO, asistiendo a las juntas del Comité Consultivo de Aprendices de Inglés, juntas del Concilio Escolar, Café con el Director y nuestros eventos de S.T.E.A.M y alfabetismo. Este año abriremos nuestro Centro de Padres de Curtis como también partiremos en el Instituto de Liderazgo de la Familia.

    Estoy muy entusiasmado de ser el nuevo miembro de la familia de Potros de Curtis y continuar el trayecto al éxito. Espero con anticipación trabajar con cada uno de ustedes y sus hijos al trabajar para tener un año académico exitoso.

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Owen Ross
