Aloha! We hope you are all safe and well. The pandemic has changed all of our lives and your alumni association has been working through this to support the students in the Castle Complex schools. Given the safer-at-home restrictions, we will not be having an in-person annual meeting this year. Instead, we are reaching out to you with this newsletter.
We are always looking for new members, so if you know of classmates or anyone in the community who would like to support Castle High School and the other schools in the Castle Complex, please share our newsletter and our website and ask them to join our ohana. Our schools need community support more than ever! Please make a donation!
Please download the newsletter to read about our past activities and plans for the new fiscal year.
Thank you members for your continued support of the Association and the students of the Castle Complex schools. Every donation, be it a dollar or a thousand is helpful to provide for the students.
As you consider making a donation to the Association, please know that, besides becoming a member and making a donation online, you can mail in your membership form with your donation. We will add your name to our membership database and add your donation toward our goal.
