Message from Ms. Lambert

Dear Parents,

The end of the year is fast approaching! At this time of year there are many fun activities, but there is also still much learning to be done. Teachers are also conducting the end of year assessments and report cards will go home with the students on the last day of school.

Summer School begins June 13th. The acceptance letters went home with students on Tuesday, May 17th. If you completed your earlier summer school request form and do not see your child's acceptance letter in their backpack, please contact us immediately.
This year 170 students will attend Summer school!

Best Regards,

Theresa Lambert, Principal

PTA Membership Cards for 2015-16

Did you purchase a PTA membership for this school year? The card to prove your membership is in the school office. If you do not yet have your card, you are encouraged to pick it up in the Castro Office during regular business hours. They are in alphabetical order on the counter in a specially marked box. The PTA thanks you for your membership and the interest you have in your child’s school and their education.

Volunteers Needed-Morning of June 3rd! Please HELP!

We need to get some volunteers to help the 4th grade parents set up for the 5th grade Promotion Ceremony. Parents from any grade level can help! There are many small tasks to accomplish and many hands help the work get done quickly.

Can you plan to spend 30-90 minutes on that day to help make the Promotion Ceremony ready? (Remember that your child will be in the position to help with this ceremony soon.) Time passes quickly! Please call Fernanda Brant at (650) 669-2280 for details and scheduling.

Box Tops for Education

Thank you to all for turning in those Box Tops!! We have received many this month! You may turn them in at any time to the Castro School Office during the regular school year.

Save them at home during the summer and bring them in when school begins in August. They help earn money for Castro School. Remember to ask your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to save them for your child. Just save the coupons in a baggie and collect from your people a few times each year.

It is a great way to support your child’s education and the school’s library, field trips, and some teacher supply costs. SAVE THEM!!
