Principal's Message

2 years ago

Greetings Wildcat Parents, 


On behalf of the Castle Rock staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year!  My name is T. J. Ryan, and I am the proud principal of Castle Rock Elementary School, home of the Wildcats! This year will mark my 10th year in Woodlake Unified School District and I look forward to serving our students, staff and parent community.  Our school has established high standards that strive toward academic excellence and self-improvement.


Our mission at Castle Rock Elementary School is to provide an excellent education to a diverse community through exemplary programs, services and activities. Our goal is to foster a lifelong commitment to academic and character development. Our intent is to nurture the unique potential of each student to enable them to fulfill their goals and realize their potential as contributing members of society.  We are looking forward to a memorable school year as we strive to be our best!  


Parents are a vital part of student success and you are encouraged to engage in your child’s educational journey at Castle Rock. Please download the Aeries app and get connected through ClassDojo to stay updated on your student's grades and with announcements.

We will continue to use our school website as a great resource for information and celebrations. We hope that you will find this website useful and informative while providing a convenient reference for basic and essential information concerning the operation of the school.  Please contact the school office at any time if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.  

With warm regards, 

T.J. Ryan
