The Dolphin Whistle
December 2nd, 2015 - Issue 16
On Wednesday, December 9th we will be holding our Mariano Castro Kinder Information Night for all families that have a child starting Kindergarten next school year.
Please tell all your friends and family that have children starting Kindergarten next year that we are having an information night to learn about the Kindergarten program at Mariano Castro as well as information about the whole school. Please also remember that families that live outside our school boundaries but are interested in attending Mariano Castro, can make that request at the time that they enroll their child.
Help us get the word out!

Box Tops for Education Update
Please ask your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to save them in a baggie for your child's school. It is an easy way to make money for Mariano Castro. Also, remember that Castro turns in Labels for Education. You can ask people to save both Box Tops and Labels for Education for your child.
This week each classroom will get a Collection Box for the Box Tops and Labels for Education programs. You may deposit your donation into the classroom box or in the main boxes in the office at any time through the school year. Our next submission dates will be in the spring, so let us gather as many Labels and Box Tops as possible! Free money for Mariano Castro School!!
