Literature Comes to Life Assemblies

Curie students in all grade levels enjoyed the Literature Comes to Life assemblies we hosted last week! UTK through 2 grade got to act out The Rainbow Fish & 3rd through 5 grade got to act out The Paper Bag Princess. Check out photos from the assembly below!


Nominating Committee for PTA Executive Board

We are recruiting 2-3 PTA members who would like to serve on the Nominating Committee for the election of Executive Board offices this spring. The Committee is a great opportunity to identify future leaders of the Curie PTA. The Parliamentarian, Nicole Ogden, will assist the committee to nominate individuals for open executive board positions (all positions are open every annual election cycle). Committee members will communicate primarily through email & meet via Zoom. Members can expect a very flexible schedule & minimal time commitment. If you or someone you know is interested in either serving on the Nominating Committee or putting your name in for a board position, please contact Nicole at Thank you!


Art & Music Showcase Committee

We are in the early stages of planning for the Art & Music Showcase, which is scheduled for Friday, May 19. If you are interested in serving on the committee, please reach out to Kerri at Recruitment of volunteers for specific tasks will begin in late March, so please keep an eye out for that as well.


Tour Guides Needed for the Multi-Cultural Fair

At Curie's upcoming annual Multi-Cultural Fair, students will have a chance to experience many of the cultures & nationalities that are represented in our school community. We are still in need of about 10 tour guides to guide groups of students to the various booths. Please visit: to sign up today. Times at a glance are listed below. For further information please contact Nilou at or (858) 337-3991.

  • Mr. B is out of paper of all types & also in need of a Sharpie restock. Please view his wish list here if you are able to make a donation to the art room. Thank you for your support!

  • The Garden Club has lots of opportunities to get involved in 2023! Every Friday after school, volunteers spend an hour or two working in the garden (weeding, mulching, making plant markers, & more). If Friday doesn't work with your schedule, that's ok; anytime you want to get your hands dirty during the week is fine! Preparation for an upcoming plant sale is also in full swing so if you are interested in donating seed starts & succulent cuttings to the club, the collection area for these items is located by the mural wall in the community garden.

  • Past newsletters can now be found on our website!
