Great Things are Happening at Castlehill!

Our New Pond is Open for Business!

September 2013 - The new pond for our wonderful science turtles is finally ready! Chowder and Panini have a beautiful pond palace thanks to the generous contributions of our Castlehill families, and thanks to the Tucson Koi and Water Garden for their helpful advice and the soon to be added fish.

Fourth Grade Mysteries and More!

September 2013 - The fourth grade is off to a great start! We have begun our first genre study; mysteries. After we learned some mystery lingo, we read several short mysteries, completed story maps, and embarked on using clues to write our own mystery. In math, we are refreshing our memories with place value, comparing numbers and money, rounding, and of course, multiplication!

Adventures in First Grade

September 2013 - Mrs. New's First Grade began the year with a Leo Lionni literature unit and a Snail science unit. We are the parents to about 30 snails and a huge tarantula (thank you Emma Lock)! We've had many firsts these first days of 1st grade...labeled our 1st diagram, had our 1st spelling pretest and timed math test, wrote our 1st vocabulary words, and even met our 5th grade book buddies for the 1st time.

Pre-School Fun!

September 2013 - These first few weeks of school have been fun-filled and exciting. Our children are making new friends and reconnecting with old friends. We are polishing our social skills - taking turns and sharing. The two Preschool classes are working on the theme "Me and My Family" as we all learn a bit about each other. Each morning during circle time we count the days on the calendar, recite the days of the week, and discuss the weather!
