Our School is participating in National Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 4th.

Join children and adults around the nation to celebrate the benefits of bicycling and walking.

5 Steps to Safe Riding:

  1. Wear a Helmet: Make sure that the helmet fits on top of your head, not tipped back or forward.
  2. Be Visible: When riding on the road, always ride on the right hand side (same direction as traffic).
  3. Be Predictable: Ride in a straight line, don’t weave in and out of traffic.
  4. Follow the rules of the road: Obey the same traffic laws as drivers of cars, including all the traffic signs and signals.
  5. Have fun!

We have a special project happening at Castlemont School on Tuesday, April 26.

Guest videographers will be on campus Tuesday to record some of the great things we do here at Castlemont.  They will be video-recording students' activities all around campus, including in classrooms.

If you have any concerns about your child being included in the video, please let the school know as soon as possible.

Like you, we are proud of Castlemont School, and this video project will help us tell our story to others.

One of the most important decision-making groups at Castlemont is our elected School Site Council. The Council is composed of five parent and community members and five representatives from the school’s staff. The Council reviews the school plan annually, establishes a budget, makes modifications as necessary, and assists in the evaluation of the school’s programs. Members are elected by the groups that they represent. Parent and community representatives and alternates are elected for a two-year term and may stand for re-election upon the completion of each term.  If you are interested in running for the Council, please submit your name, with a short biography, to the front office by Thursday, May 5. The voting ballot will be sent home on Monday, May 9 and returned to the front office by Monday, May 16.  The elected council member will be notified and his/her name posted in the front office on Friday, May 20.

There is currently one seat to be filled. The candidate receiving the most votes will serve on the Council as a parent/community representative. Write-in candidates receiving votes have an equal opportunity to be elected or serve as alternates on the Council. We meet 6 times throughout the year on Mondays at 3:00 p.m.
