Mr. Hegarty Day!
CE celebrated “Mr. Hegarty Day” on Friday, October 18th in honor of his service and dedication to Castleberry Elementary. Last year, he volunteered 1,400 hours and he has been here all day everyday this year. He helps in the office, in the library, and in the classrooms. He monitors every morning, at lunch and in the afternoon. There is nothing that he cannot do. The staff and students love Mr. Hegarty and have embraced him into our CE family. We had an assembly for him on Friday. The honor choir performed “On Top of the World” then he was presented with a CE tie, a school-made book, and a book donated to the library in his honor. Thank you Mr. Hegarty for all that you do!!!
American History, American Music at Castleberry Elementary
Fifth grade at Castleberry Elementary recently took a trip to Fort Worth’s Bass Hall Performing Arts Center and saw “Copeland and the Common man”. This program presented Aaron Copeland as the quintessential American composer who captured the optimistic sprit and rhythm of his homeland in music and used it as homage to our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. This presentation featured curricular connections in American historical and cultural heritage, evaluation of musical elements, and language arts/writing.
