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.  Students are engaged in their learning and excited to participate in the variety of extra-curricular experiences that are offered at CVES.

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.

I tell students that my job is to make sure they are safe, having fun and learning. The best part of my day is walking outside, or through the school and seeing all three are in place for our students.The Castor Valley staff is committed to providing the best quality educational experience for each student.
