Dear Castle Hills Elementary Families,

It is hard to believe that our first nine weeks is coming to an end! We are so thrilled to have our new principal Mr. Eric Wicker in place and heading up this fabulous school. Many thanks to the outstanding staff for the time and energy they share with our children to educate them and make them feel comfortable, respected and successful.

I also would like to thank the amazing Executive Board for their enthusiasm and hard work. This group of parents has been tireless in their efforts to further the causes of the PTA and Castle Hills Elementary. I cannot express how much I appreciate their drive and focus.

We have faced some sad and stressful times already this year and it has been so impressive to see the strength and grace that was used to rise to the occasion. It has been such a demonstration of our sense of community and family.

I want to thank everyone for the support you have shown the PTA. We appreciate your participation in the events that have been held, Open House, Grandparents Lunch and the fundraiser. If you are not a part of the PTA, it is not too late! Please check the PTA website for further information. Also, we are always looking for volunteers to assist with events. Please make sure you have completed the volunteer form to be cleared through DPS. There is information about this available at www.neisd.net.

The directory is at the printer and should be distributed upon return from intersession. This year it is a fabulous document. It includes a tremendous amount of information. If you have not ordered a directory, there is an opportunity to purchase a copy on the Castle Hills Elementary website www.castlehillspta.com.
