Welcome to the 2024-25 School Year!

Welcome Comet families! We are excited to kick off another amazing school year at Casillas. We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable time with family and friends over the summer break. As we get ready to start another year, it’s a good time to be reminded of our Core Values that serve as the foundation of our learning community:

  • Caring
  • Honesty
  • Perseverance
  • Respect
  • Responsibility

Our core values will support us in this journey together and as Helen Keller once stated, “Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” In addition to our Core Values,we have our monthly Character Strengths to further help encourage our scholars’ academic, behavioral, and social and emotional development. We kindly request the support and cooperation of all stakeholders in making our school a pleasant and safe place in which all children can thrive.

We’ve got lots of fun activities and events planned for the year and look forward to working alongside families to support and encourage our scholars as they accomplish great things and grow together. Additionally, there will be many opportunities for parents/guardians to get involved and we encourage you to do so! Once again, we will see another awesome year through and thank you so much for being a part of the Casillas family!

Shine bright, Comets!
