Blue Bell Ice Cream Recall and Castleberry ISD
 
  Earnest Lilly, Director of Child Nutrition at Castleberry ISD, has instructed all campus cafeterias to immediately pull and cease serving any Blue Bell ice cream products until further notice.  This action is in response to Blue Bell's own recent voluntary recall of its products after discovery of a possible link to Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
 

  2015 Annual CCDAC Fundraiser Dinner
 
  It’s that time of year again. The Castleberry Community Drug Free Awareness Coalition (CCDAC) annual fundraiser is all set. It will be held on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at 6:00 PM at the Castleberry High School cafeteria. Tickets are on sale for $12, or get two tickets for $20. They can be purchased by contacting Jackie Pena at 817-252-2019 or emailing her at penaj@castleberryisd.net.

This event is key to the continuing work of the organization. The sole source of funding for CCDAC comes from this annual fundraising dinner. Along with dinner, the event features a silent auction, raffle, and a baked goods auction.

The money raised from the dinner also supports CCDAC's annual prevention projects including scholarships, Red Ribbon Week activities, family nights, and other school and community education programs.

CCDAC’s mission is to advocate, educate, and support the community, providing a safe, drug-free, and positive environment. It is a volunteer led non-profit organization that works diligently to educate and involve the community in violence and substance abuse prevention programs.

The Castleberry Community Drug Free Awareness Coalition was organized in 1998. It was created in response to the need for a community-based approach to substance abuse and violence issues in our area. CCDAC believes that the involvement of the community is the key to addressing those issues.

For more information and a list of CCDAC officers and members, click here for the CCDAC web page.

Again, to purchase tickets before they are sold out, please contact any CCDAC Member or Jackie Pena by calling 817-252-2019 or email penaj@castleberryisd.net.
