Serving as a crucial link between the community and classroom, this board is responsible for an annual budget of $ 37.5 million, 4,044 students, 519 employees, and six campuses. Please help us thank these dedicated volunteers for their efforts to make a difference and their unfailing commitment to the continued success of our students now and in the future,” said Gary S.

Board Appreciation Breakfast at ALC Board Appreciation Breakfast at ALCMr. Seybold talked to the group and shared an analogy about a book he had read called Gettysburg: An Alternate History.  The book tells what might have happened at the famous battle if J.E.B. Stuart and his Confederate Calvary had not taken the wrong route but had made it to the fight and defeated the Yankees.  He talked to the students about how important it is to take the right "route" through life, but even if you make a wrong turn, you can always get back on track and successfully make it to your destination. 

The REACH and TRUCE staff sincerely appreciate the time and effort that the Castleberry Board of Education puts forth for the betterment of our schools.
