Hello Panthers!

What an honor it is to be the new principal at Michael J. Castori Elementary School! 

This year marks my 33rd year in education and my 10th year as a Castori Panther and I can’t think of a better place to spend it!  As the new principal of Michael J. Castori School, I am looking forward to an exciting year!  I welcome the involvement and participation of families and the community at our school.  Working with families as partners in education will helping our students reach their academic and social growth goals.

While Castori students showed strong academic growth last year, our goal is to continue to reach higher academic levels.  We continue to have in class support for students through small group instruction.  Castori also has the SEAL program for students in Preschool through 3rd grade.  This program is ideal for developing language arts skills through high interest units of study.

The first Friday of each month is our Coffee and Conversation meeting where we offer coffee and light snacks while we discuss what is happening at Castori.  Please join us from 8:00 to 9:00 for these opportunities to talk and learn more about what is taking place.  Please feel free to call or visit anytime to discuss questions, concerns, or any suggestions you may have.  I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!

Please feel free to come by the office to meet me and get to know our wonderful Castori front office staff.

Thank you!

I am so excited to join the Castori Panther family! I have learned from community members and educators throughout Twin Rivers that Castori is a gem in the district. Principal Kirsti Schroeder has a long and successful career supporting students and staff here, our teachers are passionate about making sure our students achieve great heights, and our entire staff demonstrates amazing teamwork to make sure Castori students get the best education possible. As vice principal, I am dedicated to becoming a valuable part of the Castori Panther family and working as hard as I can to make sure every student and every staff member has all the support they need to achieve their goals. Please feel free to visit with me anytime. I look forward to meeting you!
