Let’s Plan a Year’s Worth of Caring

Curry Cubs time to get active in our local community! Come meet our partners and to learn about all the ways you can make a difference. We will start at 5:15 in the auditorium with a short presentation on the requirements and then you can walk around and sign up for upcoming events. We have so many wonderful organizations that we can help! Together, we can truly make a difference. Our PTSO invited the food trucks, so come HUNGRY and ready to help us fundraise! See you on October 6th! By the way, 8th grade families, make sure to also join Dr. Matamala and Ms. Ortega for their “Transition to High School” meeting at 6:00 PM! We will have magnet program representatives in the cafeteria as well! It’ll be a SUPER informative night!

Summer Reading Information

In adhering to the School Board of Miami-Dade County, Lamar Louise Curry Middle School is participating in the Summer Reading Program to “provide students with an opportunity for growth by ensuring that students continue to strengthen reading skills and develop a passion for reading.” Research shows that a break from school activities often causes students to experience a lag in learning upon returning to school in the fall.

To lessen this effect, the Language Arts department is requiring every student to select one novel of choice from the attached Sunshine State Young Readers Award Books list for Grades 6-8 and complete a novel book report before August 29, 2022. Students will use the link https://forms.office.com/r/WZBWg4VXjP to complete the book report online.

Additionally, we encourage your child to take the opportunity to read additional novels provided for free on the http://read.dadeschools.net website to continue developing “a love for reading.”
