Our New Blog is Up and Running
As of Nov. 4, 2013, our new School website is available for use.  Among a number of great features, this site will allow you to register and receive notices when items are added.  We hope this will become an effective communication tool for all members of our school community.

Tomorrow is the Castlefrank "Meet the Teacher" event!
We welcome you to join us between 4:30 and 6:00 in the afternoon.
A great opportunity to meet your child's teacher and find out about the incredible, amazing  things that will be happening in the classroom (and the school) this year.
Castlefrank School Council will be on hand to talk about the exciting projects our parent community will undertake to support our students and to share information about how you can join in.
And I will be sharing one of my favourite stories in the Library, three times during the event. I'd love to have you and your child join me on the carpet for a little read.

Castlefrank – First Day Procedures
We look forward to welcoming back all of our returning students and parents and inviting our new students and parents to join the Castlefrank family.
On Tuesday, students should arrive at school after 8:15 and proceed to the back of the school where the teachers will meet them. Teachers will display signs indicating the grade and class. Class lists will be posted beside each door and you are invited to use these to help determine the teacher’s name and class, if you don’t already know it. As was announced in June, there may have been some changes to class assignments. At the 8:30 bell (or shortly afterward), the teachers will gather their classes and enter the school. This is time to say ‘good-bye’. J Parents are not required or expected to accompany the students into the school.
After school, parents can meet students at the rear doors of the school.
Here’s looking forward to a terrific start to an incredible year.
