Career Day

Message from the Principal

I am beyond excited to start the 2019-2020 school year here at Curtis Elementary, the BEST school in Chesterfield County. This will be my eighth year as Principal, after serving one year here as Assistant Principal. This will be the start of my 26th year in public education, and I can’t think of a better place to be! We are extremely proud of the academic performance of our students, as well as their caring hearts and passion for service!

As we strive for excellence, we will again focus on working as a TEAM this year.

T- Treat everyone with respect.
E- Everyone follows directions.
A- Accept responsibility.
M- Make good choices.

This is a great place to be. I believe that strong community-school relationships are essential to high academic achievement. Your support is greatly appreciated, and as always, our doors and ears are open to any feedback or ideas you may have as we strive for continuous improvement!

Wednesday Spotlight: Chesterfield County Public Schools presents inaugural Hall of Fame class

Marian Wright Edelman once said, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” During the course of 150-plus years, Chesterfield County Public Schools has been served by outstanding people who have devoted their career to just that — improving the lives of children in their community.

Whether it’s teachers, administrators, support staff or community volunteers, our nationally recognized school division has been supported by individuals who have given their time and talents to impact our students’ education in a meaningful way. The Chesterfield County Public Schools Hall of Fame, presented by the Chesterfield Education Foundation and sponsored this year by TowneBank, is a way to recognize and honor memorable educators and community members who have dedicated their time and effort to support students.

The Chesterfield County School Board approved the 2020-21 school year calendars during its February business meeting, expressing its appreciation to those who provided feedback and input throughout the calendar adoption process and noting that several changes had been made due to constituents’ voices.

Notable changes from the original draft presented in January include: moving parent-teacher conference day to earlier in November; reinstating Presidents Day as a student/staff holiday; and making the Friday before Spring Break a full-day holiday for students and staff instead of a three-hour early release.
