There’s nothing like curling-up on the couch with a good read on a cold, wet day.
Thankfully, Mrs. Sci’s November Math Minute has arrived just in time!
As always, this issue (as well as past issues) can also be found under the Parent Page in our Math Museum. Enjoy!

We had a fabulous first day at Castlewood!
It’s great to see new and old friends as we get settled into our new classrooms and routines.

Congratulations Class of 2013!
We are proud to announce that, for the second year in a row, Castlewood has been honored by the Chancellor’s Office as a Respect for All School.
While it is widely known that Castlewood is ”The Little School with the Big Heart,” now, we might end up being called “The Little School with the Tremendous Heart!” We are thrilled to announce that P.S. 186 has been officially selected as a Respect for All school for the year 2013. This award and title was created by the Department of Education in collaboration with the City Council. Its primary purpose is to highlight the importance of respecting others as part of the City’s efforts to combat bullying and harassment. Castlewood is one out of 24 schools that have been selected for this award, and only one of eight to have been granted the title two years in a row! Respect For All Week (February 11-15) was designed and implemented to focus the attention of all city public schools on encouraging a safe, supportive, and inclusive school environment. It also provides an opportunity to highlight and expand existing efforts to promote respect for diversity and prevent bias-based bullying within our schools. Our Respect for All Committee worked incredibly hard to bring many informative and engaging activities in honor of this special week. Take a look below to see a brief outline of what we have been up to. Also, be sure to stop by school and have a look at our latest Respect For All project: the hallway of citizen hearts—it’s a true inspiration.
We’re Making Headlines! Castlewood is in the News!
