Asst. Principal of Student Activities
Code-A-Palooza 2020 is our first attempt to have a Coding Festival at CPH. On Feb. 20, 2020 several hundred CPH students participated in Arts and Music with Code Activities or coding robots to dance.
If you were unable to participate or want to learn more, stop by room 1203 after school and before Spring Break and we will help you get started.
Notice of Naming a Facility at CPH:
Castle Park High School would like to rename our Weight Room in honor of Coach Carvin Stone. Coach Stone was a teacher and a coach at CPH for over two decades. He was committed to the betterment of the students/athletes at CPH throughout his career. He always conducted himself as a professional, both in the classroom and as a coach. He has a passion for weight lifting/training, and renaming the weight room after him would be our way of honoring his dedication and commitment to Castle Park High School.

Friday, July 26th, our Castle Park students experienced the Trojan Values Assembly. After being welcomed by Principal Mitrovich, Assistant Principal Mr. Grove discussed ASB and athletics policies/procedures, as well as our tardy policy and information on bikes and skateboards on campus. Next, Mr. Farias—the Attendance Coordinator—discussed our attendance policy, which has given CPH the highest rate of daily attendance in the entire district. The other Assistant Principals, Ms. Bravo and Mr. Miller, discussed dress code, confiscated items, bullying, and harassment. Ms. Mariah from the After School Program closed out the assembly by inviting students to participate in this year’s after school activities. If you have questions or are interested in participating in any of these Trojan topics, please reach out to the respective staff member. CPH’s Bullying and Harassment Report Form can be found here and by clicking the “students” tab above.
