We have a great community of students, teachers, staff, parents, volunteers here at Castor Valley. Everyone works together to make the school as great as it can be. School Council meets nearly every month to discuss how we can support the best learning environment for our kids. Whether that means purchasing items the school needs, organizing events to raise necessary funds, or to supplement learning with guest visits and parent workshops. We are always working for you!
We’ve finished the 2016 part of the 2016-17 year! Hard to believe! I’d like to quickly mention a few of the great things we’ve done so far this year.
- Opened our new KinderYard!!!
- Launch of our Library Project. We’ve received many book donations, raised $375 so far from our Indigo Fundscrip program, compiled results from our survey, and are busy planning how to best reconfigure our library space.
- Granted a number of Ad Hoc requests (including items like reusable paint supplies needed for the Intermediate Painting Day and visit from Author Eric Wilson)
- Had a Halloween Movie Night (a winter movie night is coming up soon!)
- Hosted a guest visit by renowned mystery writer, Eric Wilson!
- Participated in local events like Remembrance Day ceremonies and the Metcalfe Christmas Parade.
- Hosted our annual Christmas Shopping Day and the Intermediate Paint Day
Join us at our next meeting in the library on Thursday January 19th at 6:30pm. We’d love your input into planning our next steps!
