The Dolphin Whistle
May 11th- Issue 35
Message from Ms. Lambert
This Sunday, May 15th at 10:00 a.m. we need your help!
We need to move the garden planter boxes as construction begins this summer and the boxes and containers need to dug up, put on carts, and moved to a storage area behind rooms 34-36.
There will be snacks and much gratitude for those who can spend even an hour helping! We will use those boxes in the new garden area when the new school is constructed.
Thank you in advance!

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!!
