Crushin’ Cancer!

Castleford School District, along with Lighthouse Christian, helped raise $1,027 for the American Cancer Society! Coach Brian Lowry wishes to thank everyone who purchased a Crush Cancer shirt which made this possible.

FFA Livestock Contest

Castleford FFA members recently won the South Magic Valley FFA District Livestock Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE). Students had to evaluate beef cattle, meat goats, sheep, and swine. After placing these animals, the students provided judges with a set of oral reasons to defend their placing. Team members (back row, left to right) were Evan Fontes, Dacian Nunes, Travis Wells, Oree Reynolds, Nicholas Aguirre, Nathan Aguirre, Makaela Scott, and Charlie Cornie. Front row team members from left to right are Lilly Eldredge, Alexia Machado, Aubrey Mahannah, Hailey Kaster, and Abby Blick.

Makaela Scott placed 8th, Travis Wells placed 6th, Charlie Cornie placed 5th, and Abby Blick place 2nd overall in the district. These individuals who placed will compete at the state level this coming June. 

Track Coach

Castleford School District is currently accepting applications for a middle school track coach. Please contact Ms. Kris Kline if you’re interested.

Bus Safety

Rick Rodgers taught Kindergarten through fifth-grade students how to be safe on a bus. Here are the first-graders simulating how to walk in front of a bus and how to get out in case of an emergency.

Student-Led Conferences

Reminder: Student-led conferences are scheduled for this Wednesday, October 11th, from 3:30-7:00 p.m. Student-led conferences are different from regular parent-teacher conferences, in that students lead the conference: they have the opportunity to show their parents some of their best work and some work that could be improved. Students can also show their parents around the school. We hope you take this opportunity to learn more about your children’s progress and performance. 

Free chili and cinnamon rolls will be provided!

PTYO Walk-a-Thon

The PTYO’s annual Walk-a-Thon is scheduled for Friday, October 20th. Pledge forms in Spanish and English are available for parents and students to use to begin fundraising. This is the main fundraiser that the PTYO holds each year. Not only does it promote health and wellness, it also raises necessary funds for school projects. Funding in the past has been used to purchase rugs around the school, a new stage curtain for the cafeteria stage, and most recently, new playground equipment. Click the links above for more information. 

Please participate in this great fundraiser! 

Awareness Game

Friday, October 13th will be a “Crush Cancer” awareness football game.  Castleford, along with Lighthouse, will be teaming up to raise awareness and money for cancer research.  T-shirts will be available to support this event and all proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.  Please contact Brian Lowry or stop by the school office to purchase a shirt. 

PTYO Meeting

There is a PTYO meeting this coming Monday night, October 9th, in the library beginning at 7:00 p.m.
