The Francis Howell School District has selected Tim Scholle to serve as the principal of Castlio Elementary School. Scholle has been serving as the interim principal at Castlio during the 2018-19 school year after the retirement of the previous principal, Dr. Bridgett Niedringhaus.

“My goals as principal are to continue to make Castlio a great place for students, staff, and families,” Scholle said. “Castlio has always had a great sense of community and closeness. Relationships are so important in the work that we do each and every day. I want to make sure we continue to make Castlio a caring community that puts the work of our mission and vision out front, to empower a community of successful learners, and create a safe environment that fosters learning and leadership.”

Something Scholle believes will help the school continue its success under his leadership is the outstanding community that supports it. “The Castlio community is such a caring, supportive community. Our parent support through our PTO, family engagement team and our volunteers make a tremendous impact on our students and our teachers. I am beyond excited to continue to build these relationships to provide what’s best for our kids at Castlio.”

Scholle served as the assistant principal at Castlio for five years before being named the interim head principal last year. Before working as an administrator at Castlio, Scholle taught second, third, and fourth grades for seven years at Central Elementary. He received a bachelor’s in elementary education, a master’s in education, and an educational specialist degree in school administration from Lindenwood University.

As a former teacher, Scholle is clearly focused on kids and their success. “Our students are amazing. I have had the opportunity to develop positive relationships with our students and have watched many of them learn and grow so much throughout the years. Castlio’s sense of community is nothing short of amazing and I want to continue to build on the great community we have.”
