PTA Events

Heifer International

Each year, Castle Heights students and their families have a chance to make a difference in the lives of small farmers and their families from all over the world. Collectively, our own community's small change or bills can buy a cow for a family in Ghana, honeybees for a farmer in Guatemala, a water buffalo for a family in the Philippines, and much more. Heifer provides training in sustainable agriculture techniques and machinery such as water pumps in addition to livestock, and has done so since 1944.

A heartfelt (and slightly belated) Thank You from the PTA to CHES for raising over $1600 for Heifer International in our March 2020 campaign.  We'd like to acknowledge the generosity of everyone who gave what they could, with a special "shout-out" to Mr. Davidson's and Mr. Rains' classes, who led the donating.

Big Red Bucket

Starting Monday, 11/4 we will be collecting non-perishable foods to support The Good Shepherd Center for homeless woman and children. Every child will receive a grocery bag from our neighborhood Vons, we ask that you please bring it back to school with a donation for our food drive, or go 'green' and bring in a donation in your own bag. We will be out in front with the red buckets for easy drop off. We appreciate any donation. LEARN MORE.

Dash for Dudley

For any that aren’t familiar with Dash for Dudley, it is an awesome event where kids have 15 minutes to do laps with their class, with music playing and parents cheering all the while. Beyond that, Dash for Dudley is the primary source of funding for school field trips. LEARN MORE.
