Re-enrollment for the 2022-23 school year is upon us. We pray that you all will consider continuing to partner with Curtis next school year. If you are planning on returning to Curtis Baptist School for the 2022-23 school year, please take the time and re-enroll before the end of February to save $100 on your re-enrollment fee and secure your spot before enrollment is open to the public. Early enrollment is important as it allows us to plan for our faculty and staff needs for the next school year. Current families will receive a notification when packets are ready to be accessed.
If you know of a family that is looking for a school that provides a Christian education, we ask that you let them know that our CBS Open House will be Thursday, January 20th from 5 pm–7 pm.

Welcome back from our Holiday break. I pray that everyone had some time to enjoy family and rest. This month we will be having our Spirit Week January 18-21 with CBS Homecoming on Friday night January 21st at Cheeks Gymnasium.
Please continue to pray for our students and staff as we approach the 2nd semester of the school year. Thank you for your continued support.

Elementary School News
Thank you to everyone for the warm wishes and prayers as I transition into the Elementary Principal role. I am truly blessed to be able to serve your children and families. January is packed with fun, learning and excitement. I want to again welcome our new 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Mancine, to our elementary faculty. As we celebrate the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday and the continuation of the winter season let’s continue to love one another with the love of Christ and give back to those who don’t have.
Also, please have your children read to you for at least twenty minutes daily. Reading is like a muscle and the more you do it the more it will become easier for your children. I look forward to working with your children and seeing them progress throughout the year. If you have any questions or just would like to meet me please email email@example.com and we can set something up.
