Hello, Castle View Families:

It was a week that started in heartbreak, with the loss of a member of our community and struggling to find the right way to take care of each other through our grief and shock. I was once again reminded of the strength of the relationships that are the foundation of Castle View, and I want to express my gratitude for the love, concern, and support you've shown us and one another.

We found a way to keep moving forward-- learning and creating together. A special congratulations to the amazing cast, crew and pit of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, as well as our League Champion CV Cheer Team and League Runner-up CV Poms Team. We are so so proud of these student artists and athletes, and it has been a joy watching our community come together to celebrate them.

As always, thank you for sharing your kids with us. It is our honor to serve them.

Term 2 Course Fees!

Course fees have been assessed for Term 2 courses; you should have received invoices in your email from My School Bucks. You can view and pay fees here:

Many school supplies including books, on-line subscriptions, and general classroom supplies have been purchased. In order to offset the costs already incurred, course fees are due by the end of the current term. It's always best to "pay as you go" so that fees don't pile up.

Feel free to reach out to the Bookkeeper, Renee Susman, at 303-387-9007 if you have any questions regarding fees.
