Final Week Activities
This is the final week of school for the 2015-2016 school year at Castleberry ISD. As usual, the week is filled with award ceremonies on all the campuses. To be sure not to miss your special event, check the campus calendars on each campus web page for specific dates and times of award ceremonies and celebrations.
Thursday, June 2nd, is the final day of classes and an early dismissal day for all CISD students. For Castleberry ISD staff, the day ends on Friday with the district wide Employee Celebration and Award Ceremony at 2:30 p.m. in the Irma Marsh Middle School Auditorium. The theme this year is “Hello Summer”.
Castleberry High School and REACH High School will send the Class of 2016 off with its Graduation Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2016 at 7 p.m. at the W.G. Thomas Coliseum, located at 6108 Broadway Avenue, Fort Worth.
Online Registration for 2016-2017 School Year
With the current school year ending, it is also time to start preparing for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. Online Registration continues to be available for all Castleberry ISD schools.
Parents who have a Skyward Family Access account will be able to login and complete a large part of the registration process online. Online registration is highly recommended to all parents. If you are the parent or guardian of a CISD student, but have not yet signed up for a Family Access account, please go to www.castleberryisd.net, select “Family” at the top of the page, then select “Sign up for Family Access.”
Online registration will begin Monday, July 11, 2016 and will end Sunday, July 31, 2016 at midnight. A link for registration will be available, here, on the CISD Homepage at that time. After completing the online registration process, parents will still need to visit the campus during regular registration (see below) to receive a “fast pass” to complete proof of residency and parent identification in a quick and easy process.

||Students at Irma Marsh Middle School had a wide variety of professionals sharing their experiences and career advice as they passed from class to class on Career Day on Monday, May 23rd. Guests ranged from Castleberry ISD’s own Superintendent John Ramos to television personalities to law enforcement to banking officers. Even those serving our country in the military took time to come out and share information with the students. The students’ day was chockfull and each student was almost assured of finding or discovering his or her own special interest during the guest-filled day.
Superintendent John Ramos kicked off the day by speaking to students in Mr. McPherson’s class in Room 103. Mr. Ramos’s advice to the students was, “If you want it, go get it.” He also reminded them to “surround yourself with people who make you better.” In fact, Mr. Ramos said he tells his own children two things each day, “Do the right thing” and “be a leader.”. He believes one cannot be a good leader unless they do the right thing.
Brandon Todd, Fox4 News Anchor, was on hand to share his experiences in the news business. In Ms. Daisy Henson’s 8th grade ELA class, the students got to hear all about the exciting stories he covered. Mr. Todd shared the top serious ones he covered, such as the plane crashes on 9-11, as well as his interviews of American Idol winners and sports heroes like Emmitt Smith and Deon Sanders.
Edward Egros, Sports Reporter, also of Fox4 News, was back for a second year in a row. He says he enjoys being at Irma Marsh on Career Day because of the “friendliness of the staff and the incredible listening skills of the kids.” He says “They listen with such intensity it makes them a great group to talk to.” He told the kids about how his position is split between reporting on location and anchoring behind the camera and the different skills required for the two ways of reporting. He did an excellent job explaining, also, other types of sports reporting, such as play-by-play commentator and color analyst.
