The Jump Rope for Heart was a Huge Success
On February 13th, students at Castleberry Elementary jumped all over heart disease and stroke by participating in Jump Rope For Heart. The students raised more than $2700 for the American Heart Association, which funds research, programs and education to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers.
“I’m so pleased with the success of this year’s event,” said Michael Jenkins, Jump Rope For Heart coordinator. “We all had a lot of fun, and the kids enjoyed learning about the importance of physical activity and how they can play a role in saving lives.”
The schools top fund raiser was 3rd grader Faithlyn McPherson. She raised $200 in memory of her Pepaw Charles Miller. Castleberry Elementary is so proud of all who participated in this years event.
Lion Leaders for Fourth Six Weeks
Every six weeks the 5th grade students at Castleberry Elementary have the opportunity to write a brief essay about why they should be chosen to be a Lion Leader for the next six weeks. The students write their essays and give them to the teachers who then submit them to the essay committee. The committee members read the essays, not knowing which essay belongs to which student, and rate them A – Z. The essays that have the highest ratings across the board are chosen as the next Lion Leaders as long as they are showing good citizenship and are keeping their grades up in the classroom. The Lion Leaders help with simple office duties, help in the lunch room with our kindergarten students, and help at arrival and dismissal times. It is a great honor to be a Lion Leader at CE.
This six weeks the Lion Leaders are from left to right Bianca Torrez, Erika Cedillo, Brianna Marquez, Melany Gutierrez, Rebekah Garcia, and Lilianna Rodriguez. Also pictured in the back row are 5th grade teachers Nicole McDorman, Chip James, Ashley Parker, and Associate Principal Terry Johnson

Fort Worth Science Museum Comes to CE
Science is the field of study concerned with discovery and describing the world around us by observation and experimentation. On December 9th, Castleberry Elementary in conjunction with the Fort Worth Science Museum hosted Family Science Night. Over 350 families and staff members attended this hands on world of discovery. Families were able to gaze the planets and stars in a planetarium show, experiment with electrons to create static charges, and much much more!
Can Food Drive Helps Local Food Banks
Castleberry Elementary and Joy James Elementary students were able to come together and raise a total of 2,054 cans for those in need for the holidays. All food items will be distributed between the local food banks in River Oaks. Castleberry Elementary would like to thank everyone who participated in the canned food drive for all their hard work and holiday spirit. The food drive was a part of CISD’s 3rd annual Turkey Trot that is hosted each year at Castleberry Elementary. Even though the run was postponed until May due to the weather, it did not stop the students of both campuses from coming together for our community.
