Principal's Message

Dear Curvin McCabe Families,

   The holiday season is upon us, and the students are very excited for the upcoming Holiday break.

   Students in all grades have been working very hard in all academic areas.  Students in Grades K-2, are conducting research on animals, and bugs.  Please ask them about their insect or animal,  I am sure your student will tell you some "WOW" facts about them.

   Students in Grades 3-5 have also been focused on learning the scientific method.  Students in Grade 3, have been focusing on Weather and Climate, Grade 4 on Soil and Rocks, Grade 5 on the Earth.  Ask your child, about the content they have learned, ask them about the various demonstrations or experiments they have conducted in class.

   To help with the traffic congestion, myself in conjunction with Officer Rose have implemented a safety patrol.  You will see 6 students by the Kenyon Ave. drop off area.  The student at the beginning of the drop off area will give you a number, please drive up to the appropriate cone, and a member of the safety patrol will open the door to let your child out.  As a friendly reminder, this is a quick dropoff, if you need to come into the office, or walk your child to the school, I am asking that you park your car farther down on Kenyon, or on Baxter Street.  

   The cold season is in full swing here at Curvin.  We have sent multiple students home with stomach bug symptoms.  Our custodial staff is doing a great job of keeping our building clean, but we need your help.  Please do not sent your child to school if they have vomited or had diarrhea.  Students need to be free of these symptoms for 24 hours (after eating solid food).  In addition, if your child has a fever (anything above 99.1), they need to fever free for 24 hours (off all medicine).  Please follow these guidelines, it will help us to stop the spread of these viruses in the building.

   The state released the School Report Cards for all schools in the state of Rhode Island.  On Wednesday, January 23,  I will be hosting a School Reporting Night, during this night I will review our state assessment scores, what they mean, and as a school what we are going to do to address the scores.  I hope you will all be able to attend.

   On behalf of the entire Curvin McCabe faculty and staff, I wish you all a Happy, Healthy Holiday season.  I wish you all a prosperous New Year, and look forward to seeing you on January 2, 2019.

   Thank you for everything you are doing to help your child have a successful school year.




Mrs. Michelle N Depot
