Principal's Message

Principal's Message

 Capt. Joaquin Castro Families,

Welcome back to what will be a most successful school year, as we help unlock the dreams and potential of our students and staff.  We are looking forward to a productive partnership with our campus and community to ensure that our children achieve their highest potential.

As the new campus principal, I am eager to work with the community, students and staff to ensure that Castro Elementary becomes an exemplar in our district.

Working together as a team we will move forward in our mission to establish a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment in which all students can learn at optimum levels and become responsible members of society. We have so much to be proud of as a staff, family, and community, and we will continue to support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child.

 Best Regards,

Myra A. Garza, Principal
