Student Council Coin Drive

Student Council is running a coin drive at Curie during the month of April. All funds raised through the coin drive will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Prizes will be awarded to the lower (TK through 2nd grade) & upper (grades 3 through 5) classes that collect the most money. Each teacher has a jar in his or her classroom to collect coins. Start looking for loose change at home to send in!


Scholastic Book Fair: April 10 - April 14

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming back to Curie! Online shopping is available April 7 -April 20, & classes will be visiting the book fair at school the week of April 10. Every purchase earns rewards for Curie & you can make it super easy for your students to shop at school by setting up your eWallet. Set up only takes a few minutes & saves you the hassle of sending your child to school with cash.

We can't wait to see what books everyone picks out! If you’d like to volunteer at the fair, please sign up here! Please reach out to Asoka ( with any questions.

Sign Up to Volunteer at the Art & Music Showcase

May will be here before we know it which means the Art & Music Showcase is right around the corner! The Art & Music Showcase (taking place on Wednesday, May 10 at 4:30 PM) is an annual event celebrating the talents of our children led by our Art Consultant, Lee Bertrand, PTA Music Consultant, Deb O’Neill, & Visual & Performing Arts (VAPA) instructors, Katherine Pupping, Avinash Mehta, & Nico Pachano Gonzalez. There will be food trucks on site with both dinner & dessert options. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities for both day-of & pre-planning tasks (including tasks you can help with by completing at home), & it's fun to do with a friend or group of friends! There is even a sign-up to bring outdoor games if you have any to lend! Check out the link below to sign-up.


  • In an effort to reach as many members as possible, General Association PTA Meetings will now be held both in-person & online! If you'd like to join us in person, the meeting will be held on campus at Curie in Room B14 (closest parking is the back lot at Curie).

  • Past newsletters can now be found on our website!
