We are so proud of our Palomino staff, students, and families! It is quite an accomplishment for Chatsworth Park and we look forward to continuing to provide a high quality education for our 21st Century learners!

PTA's Family Fun Night!

Open House Success!

Palominos Love Pali!

5th Grade's Headed to Pali!

On May 9-11, our fifth grade headed for a fun-filled field trip to the Pali Institute.  Located in the San Bernardino Mountains, our students experienced a once-in-a-lifetime adventure through Pali's outdoor education and science program.  They enjoyed team-building exercises and honed their leadership potential while enjoying the outside world around them.  The fifth-grade trip to Pali was an experience they will always remember!

Ocean Outreach at CPES!

Starry Night Success!

TreePeople and our Palomino Community Unite!

It's Tree Planting Day!

TreePeople volunteers and our Palomino community united on Saturday, April 9, 2016, to plant 14 trees at Chatsworth Park. Even though it rained off and on, our volunteers gave their best and successfully planted Mulberry, Palo Verde, and Ash trees. For years to come, our Palominos will enjoy these trees and the shade they provide.  A million thanks to the TreePeople volunteers and our Palomino families!

HOLIDAY SHOW SUCCESS!

Closed Campus Policy

Beginning Tuesday, January 19, 2016, Chatsworth Park Elementary School, pursuant to district policy, will initiate a Closed Campus Policy. This means that during school hours, our campus is "closed," with all doors and gates locked.  This is to ensure the safety of our students.  All students should arrive between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.  Please know that the gates will not open until 7:30 a.m.  School staff will be located at two gates—Devonshire Street and Hiawatha Street—to welcome your children and to supervise them on the playground between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.  Since we will be a "closed campus," parents will no longer be able to accompany their children onto the yard or wait with them until the bell rings.  Click here for more information.

Health and Wellness at CPES!

FullSizeRender.jpg

       Our school was honored on December 9, 2015, at the Local District Northwest Principals' Meeting with the Health and Wellness Award.  We've been working hard to inspire our Palominos to become more physically fit.  Not only do we have our YMCA Cope program every Friday (thank you, wonderful PTA!), we started "Music Mondays" where our students dance during recess time...and sometimes, Mrs. Ratner has been known to dance a bit too!  It's a great way to have fun and get moving. Plus, music is good for the soul!

Our 21st century learners love coding!

The Hour of Code is here!

       We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

       That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.

       Our Hour of Code is a statement that Chatsworth Park Elementary is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge.  This next week, we'll introduce the Hour of Code at our monthly morning assembly on December 7.  From December 7-11, every Palomino will visit our computer lab and experience coding in a fun, interactive way.  Plus, they'll receive an awesome sticker and certificate upon completion!  We're fostering a love of computer science here at Chatsworth Park!

       For more information, see http://hourofcode.com/us (http://hourofcode.com/us), and help spread the word.  You may also want to register your child for a free coding event at your local Apple store on December 10 (http://www.apple.com/retail/code/?cid=wwa-us-kwg-features).  Let's make coding come alive for our 21st Century learners!
