|MEMORIES:||“The school building has now been converted into a home, but as I travel past, I can recall many memories, such as Arbor Day, when each class planted a tree, the annual Christmas program, which was attended by parents and at which we all said our various messages; in winter putting our tongues on the cold pump handle; but most of all I remember the many friends that were made and kept.” – Wylie Haukland, Historical Whisperings, January 1976
“Mrs. G. L. Gonzalez was my First and Second Grade Teacher at Castle School in 1948-1950 and Mr. Gott delivered our milk each day. I have many good memories of Mrs. Gonzalez as do my two sisters, Judy and Jane, who were also students a year behind me. We were students at Castle until we moved on to the North St. Paul Junior High” – Harry W. Phipps
