On Friday, September first the Fifth Grade class of Castlehill Country Day School took a very special field trip to World Care International. The Fifth Grade students asked the Castlehill Community to share specific donations needed by World Care which included personal toiletries like: shampoo, diapers, soap, and shampoo. The students also included cleaning products like mops, brooms, bleach and detergent. The Fifth Grade delivered these supplies to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Austin, Texas. World Care shipped the donations to Texas from their warehouse on 1925 West Gardner Lane within two days of receiving them.
From our students;
“It was exciting to get to take our things to World Care. We were so happy to see the faces of the workers when we arrived. They were very impressed with how much we collected in such a short time. We all hope that the people of Houston will be okay [and we want] people to know that Castlehill Country Day School cares!”
Thank you Fifth Grade students and a special thanks to our Castlehill Community for your generosity!

Mrs. McKay kicks off the Pre-Kindergarten school year with a kindness unit and implements The Golden Rule in her classroom. Her Pre-K students build on this the entire school year with many lessons and sweet storybooks that correlate. In November, they started learning the “Kindness Pledge” building up to their lesson honoring Martin Luther King Jr. in February. It was so well-received they wanted to share it with our school community. Enjoy!
5th Grade Website Coming Soon!
Be sure to check back later this month for the NEW Fifth Grade Website. The students are working in their Chromebooks to create individual webpages in their technology skills class with the assistance of Ms. McBride. These pages will illustrate some of the things they are learning in their classroom, in Science, through community service projects and on field trips.
Each student has chosen a topic, and is an “editor” of their own page. The students meet to discuss what new, interesting things to include on their website in technology class, and will work throughout the year to keep the site current and interesting. The website will have pages on entertainment, great books, classroom projects, puzzles, short stories, and happenings around Tucson. If you want to know what’s going on in fifth grade, be sure to check it out at the end of the month!
Grateful for Our
On behalf of the faculty and student body, we’d like to recognize one of our outstanding 2017 Castlehill graduates for his service to the school, the students and faculty. Edan Winter has served as our Audio/Visual Tech at school assemblies and special functions for over two years, and has been the young man behind the scenes to set-up, clean up and support the Music and Technology Departments in many different capacities.
We are truly thankful for Edan’s service. We will miss this special young man and wish him all the best in his middle school years!
Enjoy seeing Edan in character in a clip from our spring show “How to Eat Like a Child”. Watch out Broadway!
