Back to School Night Presentation:
Comcast Cares Day!
On Saturday, April 27, over 300 volunteers came to Curtner’s Comcast Cares Day. We completed several beautification projects with the help of Comcast and community volunteers including students, parents, and business partners.
ScootPad: Web-Based, Common Core, Personalized Learning
ScootPad is a free web-based program that provides children with personalized learning in math, reading, spelling, and much more. It is aligned with the new Common Core State Standards. Children are assessed on their progress, and parents can use the parent portal to monitor their children's academic growth.

On March 22, Curtner held its annual triage drill. The drill began with an earthquake drill, in which students practiced the "duck and cover" procedure in their classrooms. Students then evacuated out the playground to wait in their lines while the Curtner Safety Team practiced triage procedures.
Three teams of three teachers, as well as our P.E. coach and one parent volunteer, were deployed to various locations on campus to search for students who volunteered to stay back in classrooms and pretend to be "missing" and "injured". The triage teams practiced assessing the level of injury and the action required for each student.
Teachers, volunteers, and students all did an excellent job helping our school practice this very important emergency procedure.
Part of what makes the Curtner School Community so special is the active partnership between parents, teachers, and administrators. The Curtner PTA is comprised of families and teachers whose dedication and involvement truly helps make Curtner thrive. To get involved or get more info, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We at Curtner are incredibly lucky to have an amazing parent community who offers enormous amounts of time, material donations, funds, and talent to foster an educational experience that enriches the whole child. These are just a few of the ways you have generously given to our school and we appreciate you. Thank you for your commitment to Curtner.
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!
