Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Castle Rock! Thank you all for your support throughout my first year as principal of Castle Rock. I’m looking forward to another successful year filled with rigorous instruction, high standards, and fun IB activities!

This year our goal is to fully implement our Common Core State Standards by embedding them throughout our International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme. Our emphasis is to continue to develop global students that are critical thinkers, open-minded risk takers who care about their environment by being knowledgeable about the world we live in and principled in the decisions they make. This is what makes Castle Rock students so different than any other students. I am proud of the work I saw last year and excited to see the growth continue!

I know the commitment to our IB program is not easy as a parent. I want to thank you for the investment of time that you put into your child, his/her education, and our school. Without your support and dedication, we would not be able to reach the heights that we do. We are eager to start our new school year and I am sure you are eager to send your child back to school! With that in mind, please mark your calendars with the following important dates! Remember to check our website for the most up-to-date information at: Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter! @CastleRockIB for updates and announcements!
