Castleberry High School Junior Parents,
Your junior will take the SAT on Wednesday, April 5th. This opportunity is free to all our 11th graders. Why is taking the SAT important for your student?


  •         Most colleges require an SAT score;
  •         Some scholarships are based off of SAT scores;
  •         Taking the SAT a student’s junior year will give them feedback on the areas they need to work   on when they take it again their senior year;
  •         We are giving this opportunity at no cost to your student. The average cost of the exam if your   student went to take it on their own is $43.00.
How is CHS preparing your student to be successful on the SAT? Your student has been working on a program called Khan Academy (https://www.khanacademy.org/) for the last 6 weeks in preparation for this exam. Leading up to the exam, your student can continue to work on Khan Academy to better prepare themselves. We hope you will encourage your student to do their absolute best on this exam next week.

Sincerely,

Dr. Amy Ellis
Castleberry High School Principal

Castleberry High School Parents,
Beginning Tuesday, October 4th through Friday, October 7th, 2016, Castleberry High School will implement extra safety measures on our campus due to recent social media postings concerning north Texas schools.  During school hours, the following safety measures will be in place:

1)      The front door of the school will be locked, and parents will need to call 817-252-2100 (the front office) to verify identity.  Once verified, one of the office staff members will open the door.
2)     During school hours, no parents will be allowed past the front office or foyer area.

We apologize about the inconvenience this may cause; however, we take the safety and security of students very seriously. Thank you for your cooperation throughout the week.

Sincerely,
 Dr. Amy Ellis
Castleberry High School Principal
