Principal's Message

Welcome/Bienvenue to Castor Valley Elementary School,

We are home to over 700 Kindergarten to Grade 8 students and, despite our large population and geographic catchment, we are a very close knit school community. We offer an Early French Immersion program to our students who come from Greely, Metcalfe, Osgoode and the surrounding areas. Castor Valley was built to represent and respect the rural community in which we serve.

We believe we offer an excellent academic experience in conjunction with an opportunity for our children to develop a strength of character.  We promote the OCDSB Character Traits and Exit Outcomes with an emphasis on ensuring that our students are lifelong learners, by finding and exploring their passions.  

Keeping open communication between home and school is a priority for our whole school community. Follow Castor Valley Elementary School’s Twitter account for updates about school life, and visit this website regularly for updates. Be sure as well to visit for updates from our parent community.

As all of us continue to navigate life during a pandemic, I want to reassure our community that everyone at Castor Valley is committed to supporting our students' overall well-being, academic success and love of learning. We strive to build strong, trusting relationships with our students in a safe, welcoming and fun learning environment. We love getting to know our students and their families, and feel privileged to be part of their learning journey!
