Welcome Back Colts!

The Curie PTA is looking forward to a rewarding 2023-2024 school year. As a PTA, we work together to support our school by providing art, music, technology, PE, classroom enrichments, community events, field trips, & many other programs & activities on & off campus.

All of us make up our PTA. You are welcomed & encouraged to attend meetings, events, or volunteer your time. We need members to ensure collective success. PTA membership, however, does not require meeting attendance or a commitment to volunteer. Just by becoming a member of the PTA your membership helps fund programs for Curie students. PTA is the largest child’s advocacy association; we thank you for supporting our efforts to positively impact the lives of all children & families.

We know you have a busy week ahead with school back in session & the influx of information can be overwhelming. Click below to access our compilation of resources for everything Curie. You may even want to bookmark this page for future reference.

Are you following along with us on Instagram? In addition to our website, Instagram (and/or Facebook!) is a great place to stay up-to-date on upcoming events & to easily access links: to report an absence, shop the spirit wear store, subscribe to our calendar, or shop the book fair - just to name a few!


Back to School Night: UTK & Kindergarten

Tuesday, August 29, 5-6 PM

UTK & Kinder parents are invited to Curie to meet your child's teacher, see your child's classroom, & hear from the principal. Drop by the PTA table to make sure you're set up to be informed of school events, purchase spirit wear and parking space raffle (this is the best time to get that done), & more. You are also invited to return the following week for the main event...keep reading!

Fall Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Curie & you can shop ahead online starting Aug. 28 through Sept. 1. Every purchase earns rewards for Curie & you can make it super easy for your student 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! Feel free to reach out to Asoka Banno ( or Bobbie Lee ( with any questions.


Volunteer Corner

The school year has just begun and we've already had so many volunteers working hard for Curie. None of our events can happen without the help of volunteers; & there really is something for everyone. Maybe you can volunteer on campus, or maybe you can serve on a committee & use your skills to get things done at home & behind the scenes. Reach out to us to find out more!
