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

Can Food DriveCastleberry 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.

Fifth Grade Goes to Bass Hall

Bass Hall - Fifth GradeCastleberry Elementary fifth graders had a wonderful time at their fine arts field trip to Bass Hall a couple of weeks ago! Students saw "Copland and the Common Man", a show by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra highlighting the music of famous American composer, Aaron Copland. The orchestra performed excerpts from classical pieces such as "Appalachian Spring", "Fanfare for the Common Man" and "Lincoln Portrait,"", which connects well-known quotes by President Abraham Lincoln with moving music. A screen on stage provided pictures and videos to go along with the music.
