Principal's Message

Principal's Message

Raider Family,
As Principal at Captain Joaquin Castro Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another epic year.  We are eager to have the students back in our classrooms and hallways, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to ensure that every child feel appreciated, connected, and a part of our Raider family.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in academic abilities as they work towards being college ready.
The staff at Captain Joaquin Castro have worked collaboratively to design learning plans to meet the diverse and individual needs of each student.  A variety of strategies and techniques will be used in the instruction of all content areas to facilitate inquiry and engage our scholars throughout the school year.  Together, the administration and staff look forward to working cooperatively and openly with our community to establish constructive lines of communication and facilitate the success of our students.
A new school year is always an exciting time. It presents opportunities for various beginnings – new classes, new faces, new coursework, new expectations, a busier schedule, and new choices. This year will be a time for growth, challenge, and adventure as we strive to “Change the World.”
Harriet Tubman, a fearless, steadfast humanitarian, stated it best when she said, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” That’s my charge to you Raider family, let’s take our dreams and use them as a springboard to invoke change and showcase the strengths and talents of our students this school year!  Ready, set, GO!!!!!
Myra A. Garza, Principal
Captain Joaquin Castro Elementary
