189 Father Figures at Castlewood for Dads’ Day!

Castlewood was buzzing on Tuesday morning as 189 fathers and father figures came to support students! These grown-ups worked along side their children to create origami boxes and participated in class conversations about their school days, failures, persistence, and ways of building strength. A HUGE thank you to all of the adults that took time to join us, as well as the classroom teachers who opened their arms and doors to embrace this important life lesson. Pictures are below to capture these dynamic duos and families… enjoy!
