Happy 21-22 School Year Curtis Families!

We are so happy to be able to start our 21-22 school year!   As your principal, it is important for you to know that I believe in each of our students and their limitless possibilities.  I am committed to serving you and your family during this time,  as we transition back to school.    Together, we can advocate for our students, teachers, and community.    In this, my 27th year in education, and my 11th year at Curtis,  I continue to be committed to leading our team in making the best educational decisions for your student.  My assistant principal (Mrs. Beatty) and I will insist on your student always doing their best, and we will model what we expect.  We will do our best to support our instructional staff, giving them what they need to  enhance their instruction.

Our top priorities this school year will be health and safety in the building, the emotional wellness of our students,  and supporting the implementation of our House System.    Additionally, we will strive to close the instructional gaps created by interrupted learning during pandemic.  We will encourage teachers to create magical learning experiences through hands on learning,  classroom transformations, and out-of-the box, data-driven instruction.

I am beyond proud to be one of the Bermuda-11 principals. As a learning community, the Bermuda 11 principals are working collaboratively to  support our future Thomas Dale High School graduates as they begin their journey of becoming college and career ready.

We ask that you continue to follow our school and teachers on social media (Facebook or Twitter).  Additionally, we ask that you support our PTA by joining and becoming involved in the planning of all of the activities they support.  No job is too small, and volunteering is a great way to meet new friends. Please consider committing your time this school year to make a difference for your child and their teacher.

I can’t put into words how VERY proud I am to be the principal of Curtis Elementary, the BEST school in Chesterfield County.
