Dear Families,

I want you all to know that I am truly leaving here with mixed feelings; happy about my retirement, yet sad to be leaving such a great community. The last nine years as your principal have been the best period of my career. I learned a great deal, met so many wonderful parents, and was given the gift of loving students who made me proud of their achievements and could always make me laugh. I have had the time of my life and can only hope that retirement will provide me with such rewarding experiences and supportive friends as these past years have done.

Thank you very much for making my time at Castlemont so memorable. My very best wishes for the future go out to each and every one of you.

New solar structures will be built on several schools, as part of Campbell Union School District’s energy conservation program. To maximize efficiency and savings, the projects will require removing trees and replacing them with different types that will not interfere with solar collector function.
