Castle Rock Communiqué

We love our Knights!

September 27, 2020 (Week Eight)

Hello Castle Rock Families!

Happy fall! Despite the temperatures outside, fall officially began this past Tuesday. It is hard to believe October and "pumpkin season" are just around the corner! A big thank you to those of you who participated in yesterday's Parent Symposium. We hope you found it helpful! If you missed it, a link to a recording is provided below.

This week's newsletter contains information about this week's parent conferences for students in grades TK, 3 and 4, as well as updates from our superintendent, Dr. Taylor, regarding the reopening of schools regulations. Thank you for taking the time to read through our newsletter so you remain informed. Please also note that tomorrow, Monday, is a modified day with instruction ending at 12:30 (NO tutorial and support services tomorrow) to support those of you scheduling parent conferences.

Have a wonderful week and please reach out to us with any questions or requests for assistance you may have.

PS...thank you to those who have responded to our Education Fundraiser! Please see below for those details and for a fun (and wet!) incentive to participate!
