HELP CHATSWORTH KEEP CARRYING TUNES!

The PTA has partnered up with the District’s Music Department to find an affordable concert piano that is suitable to the Chatsworth Auditorium.
We are happy to report that such a piano has been found and purchased with $8,000 funding from the PTA. This was an expense that we did not budget for this year, so we are looking to fundraise to offset the expense. So far we have collected donations totaling a little over $3,000!
Please consider making a donation here or drop off a check in the treasurer’s mailbox labeled “piano donation” – any amount is welcome!
Or buy a “Chatsworth Rocks!” t-shirt for $20 here – all proceeds go towards the new piano; adult sizes also available!

Kindness Rocks!

We wanted to let the Chatsworth community in on a special project we will be working on in the Spring.  It is called the “Kindness Rocks” Project. We have attached the link listed below with examples and details on this project. The Kindness Rock project has been going on all over the world for quite some time now. It encourages people to create inspirational rocks and leave them for others to find. The idea behind The Kindness Rocks Project, is a pay-it-forward service project created in hopes of sparking joy in people’s everyday lives.

Home

We are hoping that after the children and staff create their own “Chatsworth Kindness rocks”, they will then be spread out all around Chatsworth school grounds as well as around the town of Larchmont!
Here is where we need your help!! We are hoping to start collecting rocks this winter so we will have enough for all the children to make their design on in the Spring.  The rocks need to have a smooth surface so students can paint on them (For ex: river rocks used for landscaping) and  3″ to 5″ size works best!!! There will be a large box located near the Chatsworth greeter where you can drop off your rock donation!
Thank you as always for your constant support!

COFFEE CLUTCH SERIES

Please join us for our last Coffee Clutch of this school year: “Freaking out effectively:  Tools for parents and children in these anxious times.”
School shootings, controlled emergency dismissals, and a deeply divided national leadership all contribute to a heightened sense of danger. Our children feel it!
While these feelings are normal and make sense, they sometimes overwhelm us and our children.  When we get overwhelmed, we tend to be less effective and may even make things worse. Please join renowned psychologists Dr. Alan Dienstag and Dr. Katie Sawyer on Wednesday, April 25th at 9:15am to learn how to parent the anxiety that occurs in these uncertain times, how you can harness it and help your children do the same.
Location: Room 104. Please register here.
Any questions please email Valerie Mouracade at littleval91@gmail.com.
