Homecoming will be at Home!

After suffering a major setback, the Castle High School football team AND their supporters are now rejoicing. Before the football season even began, the team was informed that home games couldn’t be held on the Castle field, because of an unsafe field condition, and that repairs couldn’t be done until after the season ended. For the Alumni, we were disappointed that homecoming wouldn’t be at home, for we were planning a push for alumni to join us at Homecoming because that’s what Homecoming means! Homecoming was when all alumni returned home for the game. The great news is that home games will be held at home, so Homecoming will be at home!

Join us at homecoming! September 15, 2017, 7:30 PM.

Photos of Kaneohe

We’ve updated our landing page with some new photos of our beloved Kaneohe. The Castle Class of 1967 is blessed with a talented photographer, who graciously allowed us to use a few of his copyrighted photos on the home page of our website.

A resident of California, he recently returned to Hawaii and shot these photos with his DJI Mavic drone, over Kaneohe, Kaneohe Bay, Castle High School, and the Kualoa region.

Some of you may have been trying to reach it after it was announced at the meeting. It’s back up and running. Stay tuned! We’ll be making some additions to the site.
