Happy 22-23 School Year Curtis Families!
We are so happy to be able to start our 22-23 school year! As your principal, it is important for you to know that I believe in each of our students and their limitless possibilities. In this, my 28th year in education, and my 12th year at Curtis, I continue to be committed to leading our team in making the best educational decisions for your students. 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 safety in the building, the emotional wellness of our students, and being sure all of our students master the essential standards at each grade level. Additionally, we will continue to close the instructional gaps created by interrupted learning during the 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). 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.
