Dear Castlemont Families,

It has been a busy week with more to come. As we wind down to the end of the school year, we will be sharing work, fundraising while having fun, and celebrating our students. 

Last week, former Castlemont student Jake Ribeiro-Galeazzi, installed two handmade benches in our garden. Jake designed, planned, and made the two benches and then donated them to us as his Eagle Scout Project.  

Yesterday, we held our last assembly of the year with a visit from Wildmind Science Learning. Our students got to see and learn about a redtail hawk, a turkey vulture, a porcupine, a silver fox, and a desert tortoise. 

This is what we have coming up in next four weeks:

  • 5th Grade Human Growth and Development Classes May 19th
  • Art Vistas Art Show May 25th @ 5:00-8:00PM in the library

Our garden now has two new custom-built benches thanks to former Castlemont student, Jake Ribeiro-Galeazzi. Jake, a member of Troop 325, designed, built, and donated the benches for his Eagle Scout project.  There is one standard sized bench and one smaller bench for our younger students.  Jake's fundraising efforts left the project with approximately $200 left over-- Jake donated these funds to our Home and School Club earmarked for our STEAM program.  Thank you, Jake, for your hard work and generosity.

Treat critters with sweetness by buying Sweet Treats after school on Fridays, May 20th, 27th, and June 3rd at the front Castlemont gate and at the Payne Parking Lot gate. Each frozen treat costs only $1 each. The money raised from this fundraiser will benefit the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA; a local, private, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to animal welfare.  The Student Leadership Team will be using the proceeds to purchase and donate much needed items such as pet food, treats, toys, and other necessary supplies.

Thanks for your support. With our help, the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA can continue to provide warm beds, nutritious food, veterinary care, and loving attention for the thousands of lost, stray, unwanted and/or injured domestic and wild animals that come through their doors!
