A STEAM EVENT

STEAM

Castlemont’s inaugural Celebration of Learning will be held this Thursday, April 27th from 6:00-7:30 PM. Grade levels have been working hard on STEAM related projects this year. Projects will be on display for families and friends. Please check the bright yellow flyer in your last Monday Envelope for more information. Don’t miss this opportunity to view these projects in our fun, hands-on event!

There seems to be a high number of students bringing fidget toys to school and have become a distraction.  Per our Parent Handbook:  “Items that are disruptive and/or can cause a safety hazard do not belong at school.”  Our main responsibility is to provide your children an environment that is conducive to learning.  If your child has a medical condition that warrants this device, please see the classroom teacher and discuss other options; otherwise, this item should remain at home or risk being confiscated.

Jog-A-Thon

The HSC is currently accepting donations towards the Jog-A-Thon t-shirts. The cost of the shirts is $7 each and we would greatly appreciate donations to help off set the cost. Each student who donates $5 or more will receive a small prize. 

Also, volunteers are needed to help the day of the event. Without the help of volunteers, the Jog-A-Thon would not be possible.  This year the Jog-A-Thon will be held on Friday, May 26th. Watch your Monday Envelope for a teal volunteer form with details about the specific needs. For more information or to volunteer to help with the Jog-A-Thon, you can also email Emily at aloek [at] yahoo.com.

Jog-A-Thon

This year, you can have your family name printed on the back of the Jog-A-Thon Shirts for a donation of $50 or $100. A blue flyer with more information was sent home in your Monday Envelope this week. Please take a moment to consider supporting our Home and School Club. Your tax deductible contribution will go towards a variety of activities and supplies including classroom supplies, field trips, assemblies, Playworks and so much more. Thank you.

Many of our flyers are sent via email with your weekly e-news! Community programs, letters from the Superintendent, summer camps, and school events information are only a click away.

No more piles of paper that may or may not make it home!

Links to the flyers are at the bottom of the weekly e-news message and with the e-flyers link on our school’s home page.

Sometimes our students need a change of clothes to borrow. Our Health Office is seeking donations of children’s pants (sizes 5-12) and underpants. Pants with elastic waistbands are especially preferred. Please bring your donations to the office. Thank you.

Students had equal say as adults as more than 100 parents, students, staff and neighbors gave input at a March 23 community forum about creating a new Preschool–8th-grade school in the District.

The meeting began with attendees using stickers to vote on the Guiding Principals the Transformation Team will consider as it develops recommendations for the Governing Board. Then, participants and facilitators separated into affinity groups—parents with other parents, students with students, and so on—so they could discuss hopes, concerns and ideas for the new school. They consolidated their input and reported it back to the whole group. Their responses are posted on the District's Transformation web page in the March 23 meeting notes.

In April, the Transformation Team will review the responses and identify common themes to address in recommendations it sends to the Board in June.

Students Must Arrive After 8:00 am

The safety of our students is our number one concern.

As noted in the Castlemont Parent Handbook:

Students are not to arrive at school before 8:00 a.m. as there is no supervision.  Once a student is on the school grounds, he/she may not leave without written permission.

If you need child care before or after school, we have Campbell Care, a fee based program.  For contact information, contact the CUSD Extensions Program at 408-364-4200 X 6378.
