Dear New and Returning Curie Families,

Welcome to the 2013-14 school year. My name is Patricia Freund and I am the President of Marie Curie Elementary PTA.

I am honored to be returning for my second year as your President.  Curie Elementary is like no other San Diego Unified School in the way that our community supports our PTA. This allows our Curie Colts to receive so many programs which have long been abandoned by the District due to severe budget cuts.

You make this possible! Thank you for that on behalf of our children!

Curie PTA holds many exciting changes for the 2013-14 school year. Our Executive Board has labored many hours to create a brand new Fundraising Calendar with aspects added and others eliminated due to YOUR feedback. We hope these changes will create even more success, and thus securing our already six PTA funded Consultants in Kinder Science, K-5

Art, K-3 Music and Physical Education for all of our kids. Furthermore, we hope to add one more Consultant to our already exemplary group this year. We are contracting for a Technology Consultant at our school who will aid all our classrooms with not only Technical support to our Teachers but bring in new, exciting and heavily curriculum based Technology advancements. This has been a focus of our Executive Board as we feel technology is extremely important for our children.

Our Fundraising Calendar looks like this:


• INAUGRUAL  CURIE PARENT PARTY , Fri. February 28, 2014

We are doing away with our Inisbrook Gift Wrap Fundraiser this year and pushing the Class Basket Silent Auction from the Craft Fair to our Inaugural Parent Party. Of course, we are taking a great risk, but we have never been disappointed in our amazing community and know you will rise to any occasion for our children.

Why do we need to be successful with our Fundraising events? Curie PTA fills truly every gap not supplied by our District

in order for our children to have a full rounded education. Of course, we pay for the classes and Consultants listed above but there is so much more the PTA funds cover. Professional Development hours for Common Core Curriculum support for our Teachers, and Technology enhancements,  Assembly/Field Trip Assistance and Field Trip Transportation/Busing,

Classroom Stipends for all our K-5

Teachers, our Science Committee that organizes our Curie Science Nights and ShoeBox-Science Kits, a new Robotics League open to all our Colts, and endless supplies for all these amazing opportunities.

Let us not forget the unique happenings at Curie. The memories our children will never forget that our supported by Curie

Grade Games Days, our unreal MultiCultural Fair, Curieosity Magazine, Dads’ Club and the list continues and expands yearly. All supported by Curie PTA.

Before this year even begins, I thank you. I thank you for choosing to join the energy and commitment of a community that cares so deeply about its children; a group of families that will strive and stop at nothing to make things happen. I look so forward to the wonder we will create together and knowing your support and engagement with Curie PTA will make the difference in your children’s lives during their years at Curie Elementary.

I look forward to a great year ahead. 

Be in touch and please be involved with Curie PTA!
