Students, show your spirit by wearing your brightest neon colors to school on Wednesday, September 26!

Please join us in helping students form the good attendance habits.

Children can copy notes or make up an assignment, but they can never get back what’s most important: the discussions, the questions, the explanations by the teacher, and the thinking that makes learning come alive.

We are asking that all families join us in helping students form the good attendance habits—being present each day and on time—that will help them succeed in school and beyond.

Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow!

We are in desperate need of School Site Council parent members. Our School Site Council has three openings typically filled by our parents. The Council is one of the most important decision-making groups at Castlemont and is composed of five parent/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. There will be five meetings this school year on Mondays at 3:00.

If you are interested in being added to the ballot for Parent/Community members, please submit a brief biography for the ballot to the office staff by Friday, September 14. We will have the election in Mid-September. If you have more questions about the council please ask in the office.

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves.

Missing just two days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year. That's 10% less learning, smiling, growing, and achieving.

Attend Today. Achieve Tomorrow.

We are very excited to get this year started!  As in the past, we will continue to show our school spirit on Fridays, wearing our school colors or Castlemont t-shirts/sweatshirts.   Similar to last year, we will also be designating certain Wednesdays throughout the year as “Special Spirit Theme Days”.  On these days, students and staff will dress according to the theme, and classrooms will compete to win the Dragon Spirit Award and popscicle treat. Winning classrooms will be determined based on the highest percentage of participation within their grade levels (TK-1, 2-3, and 4-5). Winners will be announced at monthly spirit assemblies.

Here is the calendar of Spirit Theme Days:

  • Wed. September 26th  Neon Day - wear your brightest neon colors
  • Wed., October 17th College Day - wear your favorite shirt, hat, sweatshirt….  from any college or the colors of your classroom teacher’s college.
  • Wed. November 14th Pajama Day - wear your favorite pajamas
  • Wed. January 23rd Sports Day - wear the shirt, hat, etc ... of your favorite team.
  • Wed. March 20th Super Hero/Cartoon Character Day – come dressed in attire of your favorite cartoon character or super hero.
  • Wed. April 24th  Hat Day - wear your favorite hat all day

If you have any questions about our Spirit Theme Days, please feel free to call or email Assistant Principal Catherine McAvoy. We look forward to seeing our dragon spirit at Castlemont again this year.
