Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

Parent Involvement

Castle’s Parent Teacher Organization, or PTO, is very active in supporting Castle teachers, students, and families. We welcome all parents/guardians of Castle students to attend and discover how critical your support is for the Castle community. 

The PTO has been responsible for funding many wonderful things at Castle including:

  • Field trips/retreats
  • Family Nights
  • Individual classroom needs

Help Raise Money

Parents, grandparents, and family members or friends can help our school by taking part in matching programs through their employers.

Ways to help can be found on the page to the left or by clicking here.
