Welcome to CVE!


Mr. Brazil has been a remarkable, dedicated teacher and inspiration for the Castro Valley Elementary staff and school community during the past ten years. When you walk into his classroom you know that you are in an exceptional learning environment. Mr. Brazil’s students not only master skills but they also discover the art and joy of learning. No matter what the challenge, Mr. Brazil will persevere with the student until he/she achieves success.

Mr. Brazil’s commitment to teaching and learning is evident in his active participation at site, District and community levels. Mr. Brazil was instrumental in CVE’s community partnership with Urban Village providing $30,000 to our school for three school gardens and one community garden. He organizes our after school Garden Club teaching students how to grow and care for plants. Last year, CVE participated, under Keith’s leadership, in the local Farmers Market selling start up vegetables, teaching students how to be self-sustaining. All proceeds helped purchase garden supplies for 2014-2015 school year.

CVE admires Mr. Brazil and is privileged to have him as a teacher and role-model for our students, families, and staff.


Congratulations to Mr. Brazil as CVE’s 2015 Teacher of the Year

Open House is Thursday May 21st. We hope all of our parents and guardians will join us for dessert, book fair, classroom visitation, and auction fun. Please see the attached flyer for more details. Please note, Mrs. Contreras 2nd Grade will be open from 5:45pm-6:45pm.


The week of May 4th is Staff Appreciation Week, where we pause in our daily lives to say THANK YOU to the CVE Staff. I am continuously impressed with the amount of time and energy the staff at Castro Valley Elementary puts into making sure all students at CVE are successful! They are an exceptionally talented group of teachers, paraprofessionals, office staff, and custodial staff who want to ensure the best for our students and families. Thank you for everything you do each and every day that makes CVE the place to be! I wish the very best for my staff all year, but this week is extra special for those at the heart of learning. Please check out the staff appreciation daily activities included in the Bear Facts. I know you will join me in thanking our staff each day
