Have a wonderful holiday!
On Friday evening, Curtner families shined their light at the 2nd Annual Lantern Festival. Festivals of light can be found all over the world and this was a multi-cultural celebration of those traditions. We began the night with lantern making and refreshments, then went to the streets for our promenade through the neighborhood. Boyscout Noah Winter helped monitor traffic while hundreds of lanterns lit up the community. We ended the night with a pizza dinner. Thank you to our tireless PTA for hosting the event. Keep shining Curtner!
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT REVISITED
Thank you families for attending Back to School Night. There was a lot of information shared that evening. Here are some links that were referred to in case you want to review again. Thank you for all your support for Curtner!
Part of what makes the Curtner School Community so special is the active partnership between parents, teachers, and administrators.

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!
