Principal's Message

April is done! We are on the home stretch now. Remember to relax and take time for yourself this weekend. This is such a busy time of year, we need to ensure that we take care of ourselves. Have a wonderful, restful weekend.

#castlegoals Twitter Contest!

Next week we will be holding our #castlegoals twitter contest. Students are invited to take a pic of the learning goals for their classes and tweet it out. The most tweets will win one of 10 $10 Tim Horton's gift cards. Looking forward to coming full circle with our PD this year!

Eco Team to the Rescue!

Eco Team has been working hard to obtain the Gold Eco Schools certification. Peel EcoSchools will be visiting at the end of May to evaluate our progress and to see if we reached the Gold standard.

As well, students are finishing up the Garden made specifically to attract pollinating insects. They are growing vegetables and flowers! Teachers will be able to use it as a potential learning space for their classes or to just enjoy while eating their lunch.

And lastly, water bottles are being sold to reduce plastic bottle usage in the school and to promote the use of our first water bottle filling station! We are hoping to raise funds for two more next year!
