Back to School Night

Castle Heights welcomes parents for an evening Back to School night a few weeks after school starts. Parents have an opportunity to see their child’s classroom and hear a presentation by their child’s teacher and meet with their children’s teacher about academic goals, classroom operations, etc.


Breakfast is served in the classroom. Lunch is available for purchase at $3.00. Students may also bring a lunch from home. Liquids in cans or glass bottles are not permitted and soda is not allowed due to board policy.
Lunch schedule:
Kindergarten: 11:20 am– 12:00 pm
Grade 1: 11:50 am – 12:30 pm
Grades 2 and 3: 12:10 pm – 12:50 pm

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The ELAC committee oversees the Education Program for English Language Learners.

Kiss and Drop

Kiss & Drop is a parent volunteer program where volunteers will escort children (1st to 5th Graders only) from their car to the playground entrance gate. Kiss & Drop is only available in the morning at the Beverwil Drive school gate.

Lost and Found

A lost and found clothes rack is located near the student cafeteria. Articles, such as glasses, wallets, jewelry, etc., will be brought to the office.

Open House

While parents are always welcome to visit classrooms and participate in special events, we must require that all visitors check-in at the front office. But Open House is a chance to visit the classroom to view children’s projects and talk informally with the teachers.

Room parents coordinate with the teacher to help with a variety of class needs and coordinate parent volunteers as teachers require. Need to find your Room Parent? Check in with your child's teacher

School Committees

Parents are invited to get involved in making essential decisions that affect Castle Heights as part of the following committees: the Local School Leadership Council (LSLC) is a collaborative group made up of the school’s stakeholders including teachers, staff, and parent representatives.  This council discusses student activities, school environment, general fund school budgets, student discipline and behavior, curriculum and instruction, selection of certificated staff and school-wide classified staff, along with parent education and involvement. The LSLC usually meets on the third Thursday of each month at 2:45 PM in Room 1. Contact Ms. Becerra for more information: 310-839-4528. The purpose of The Bilingual Education program is to provide eligible students the opportunity to acquire language skills in English necessary for their successful participation in an English-only instructional program. This is accomplished through various structured immersion models and primary language support. Students are transitioned into an English-only program when they meet established criteria. Contact the school office for more information: 310-839-4528.
