Thank you from Cathy McAvoy

Dear Castlemont families – I want to take this moment to say thank you to each and every one of you for the privilege of working with you these past three years.  Though my time at Castlemont was short, I will always be grateful that I was afforded the opportunity to be a part of this extraordinary community.   I look forward to seeing many of you at Monroe in years to come.

Principal's Thank You Message

Dear Castlemont Community,

I want to thank you all for the wonderful support you have given to me and Castlemont these past 6 years.  This is truly a wonderful, welcoming community that has been a tremendous place to come to work every day. Your children are full of great energy and compassion and I thank you for partnering with us in their social and educational growth.  I feel I have gained many new friends and education partners during my time here.  Though I am sad to be leaving such a wonderful environment, I know that I will see many of you in the coming years at Monroe.

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.

Eric Brown
