Principal's Message

Welcome Coyotes!Principal
To all of the new families joining us, welcome to our den!  Castille is a family atmosphere focused on student engagement, high academic achievement, STEAM and ‘pawsitive’ behaviors.
The staff operates as a pack modeling a passion for ongoing learning, collaboration, innovation and is focused on student learning.  Teachers and support staff use data to drive instruction, providing students with meaningful, rigorous lessons that are differentiated to help all students learn.  Hands-on, collaborative lessons are frequently utilized to stimulate critical thinking while fostering problem solving skills.  Staff not only focuses on academics, but assists in molding coyotes with character.  Respect, perseverance and kindness are not just acknowledged, but celebrated.  At Castille, we strive to facilitate a safe and supportive learning environment designed with every student in mind and one in which every student can thrive.
Continuous support comes from the community, volunteers and our fantastic PTA.  The enthusiasm, contribution and dedication of the PTA and community are second to none.  Due to their efforts, students are able to participate in enrichment programs, develop new friendships and showcase their talents.
Together, the students, staff and community make Castille a one of a kind elementary school!
