A Welcome Message From Principal Sullivan

Dear Castle Rock Parents,

What a privilege it is to begin my second year serving as your principal.  I have never worked with such an involved, committed, and creative learning community.  The parents at Castle Rock are active in so many ways.  Without you, we couldn’t begin to serve our kids as we do.  So, welcome!  Find a spot to serve.  Check out this website to learn of opportunities to fit your schedule and talents.  Note that volunteers this year need to fill out an application, provide a copy of the driver’s license, and get a TB test.  This is to ensure the safety of our kids.  Thanks in advance for all that you will do to make this an even more spectacular year.  

Sincerely, Mrs. Sullivan
