Principal's Message

Welcome to Castle Rock Elementary School where our motto is “Nurturing students to become critical thinkers of today and global leaders of tomorrow.”  I am honored to be the principal of a school that believes in developing students academically, as well as socially and emotionally.  Students are our principal focus and all of our programs empower children to grow, develop, and achieve. 

Castle Rock has been an International Baccalaureate school since 2006.  In order to provide opportunities for success, we structure teaching and learning in which oral, written, and visual communication are woven throughout our IB Units of Inquiry.  Our teachers incorporate State Standards into our International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and our Approaches to Learning are taught throughout all subject areas.  Our goal is to construct meaning through teaching using the Transdisciplinary Skills of:  communication, research, thinking, and self-management that help mold students who incorporate the IB Learner Profile of being: caring, a thinker, a risk-taker, knowledgeable, balanced, an inquirer, open-minded, a communicator, reflective, and principled.

This year, I am excited as we continue developing the 21st century learner by aligning our standards, with Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) integration.  Our students use a variety of technology platforms such as Chromebooks, desktops, and iPads to gain experiences so they may fully apply their learning. Our teachers and staff are dedicated and passionate to ensure our students are equipped to be creative, collaborative thinkers in order to develop innovative solutions for complex global problems.

   Castle Rock Elementary School is a unique learning environment that helps students develop into responsible, global citizens who will impact their community.  I am looking forward to working with our students, staff, teachers, and parents this year!
