Greetings Curtner Families,
Welcome back to the 2014-15 school year! It is poised to be the most academically rigorous and intellectually challenging for students as we’ve made the gargantuan leap into the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
We are pleased to announce that with your support of Measure E and PTA, last year Curtner purchased 269 Chromebooks for our students. In a few short weeks, we will complete the construction of our new Learning Center and remodeling of our Library/Media Center with a new computer lab and furnishings. This is a major step toward equipping our students with the technology skills needed for success and an exciting transition to using more multimedia in student content creation. Additionally, all classrooms have been modernized with new carpeting and upgraded heating and cooling systems.
We are also excited to welcome new members of the Curtner staff. Mrs. Jean Malashock will be our new part time Assistant Principal who will also support Pomeroy in the same role. We also welcome the following teachers to our staff:
1st Grade-Sherine Ahmed
2nd Grade-Ngoc Ngo and Kristin Nieva
3rd Grade-Rachel Thompson
4th Grade-Jinky Bitanga
5th Grade-Kiscelle Calvello
6th Grade-Jeannie Lam
We congratulate Mr. Steve Caringella who will move to the district office as a Technology Teacher on Special Assignment and thank him for all his support over the past years.
We look forward to the return of your children and to a great year of discovery and learning.
Your partner in education,
Dr. Jackie Vo-Felbinger, Principal

Common Core State Standards
Over the next two years, Curtner, as well as all schools in the Milpitas Unified School District, will be transitioning from the California State Standards, to the Common Core State Standards. These standards have established rigorous expectations for student learning at all grade levels.

Parking Lot Safety
Designated Place to Cross
To ensure the safety of all children and adults, please do not cross the Curtner parking lot at any point other than the cross walk by the school office, before and after school. Cars are continuously pulling through our parking lot, and crossing while cars are moving creates an unsafe situation.
Before School Drop Off
Please escort your child to the front of the school.
8:00 AM to 8:30 AM: Students go to courtyard at the front of the school and wait to be dismissed to their lines.
8:30 AM to 8:45 AM: Students go through the front of the school and then directly to their lines on the blacktop.
8:45 AM and later: Students check in at the office for a late pass.
Ensuring a Safe Drop Off
Please do not leave your vehicle to assist your child during drop off. Student valets are out front each morning to assist children during drop off. Children must exit the vehicle on the school side of the car, not the street side. Also, vehicles must pull all the way up in the drop off zone before a child can exit the vehicle.
Thank you for working together to ensure a safe campus for our students!
