Be a Mentor Family

Please consider volunteering to be a mentor to help a new family adjust as they join our Castle Heights community this Fall. With a very small time commitment, you can share your vast knowledge with parents who are trying to navigate this new experience. Let’s show these new families what an incredible community we have by taking them under our wing during this unprecedented time Please specify if you are in the World Language Program or are fluent in another language so we may assign families, accordingly.

Beautification Day

The Castle Heights Beautification Project is an ongoing, volunteer-fueled endeavor that takes place throughout the school year to enhance and improve the appearance, sustainability, utility, and cleanliness of our incredible school. We welcome and encourage parents and students of all ages to join us in tackling our beautification goals throughout the school year. We promise that there is a fun way for each and every person to get involved – from gardening, painting, and power washing to dropping off snacks, assigning volunteers, and handing out tools – every person has a skill or two that they can put to great use in beautifying our school!
