April 2019


Dear Curtis Family,


Curtis Tigers will be taking the online state LEAP assessment beginning April 9, 10, 11, 16, and 17.  Students will attend a LEAP pep rally on Friday, April 5th. We are excited and we are ready! Everyone has been working hard all year, and we are confident the students will do well.  Please help your child get to bed at a reasonable time for a good night’s rest and to eat a healthy breakfast in order to start each day off strong.


Purple Up! Bossier City is the proud home of Barksdale Air Force Base. On Friday, April 26th, we will show our support to all those serving in the military and to their families by wearing our favorite purple shirt and jeans. Purple Up Day will be a day to recognize their service and to show our gratitude for keeping us safe and protecting our freedom every day.


May is also just around the corner! We are hoping for beautiful weather so everyone can enjoy Field Day on Friday, May 3rd. Parents, please come and join us! We have many fun activities planned for your child. Outdoor rotations will begin at 9:00 on the Curtis playground. We will break for lunch from 11:45-12:45 and have a picnic on the grounds. The day wraps up with a tug-of-war at 2:05. Refreshments will be sold. Bring your sunscreen, sunglasses, and lawn chair, and we will see you there! (One more important reminder is to park safely. Law enforcement requires that cars be parked completely off of the highway. Do not park anywhere close to an entrance to obstruct the view for drivers, in the median, or on the opposite side of the highway. Thank you.)


Geaux Tigers!

Mrs. Bird
