Consider sharing the excitement around your child's birthday with the school community by donating a book for all to share to the school library.
The book would be enhanced with a bookplate noting your child's birthday to celebrate the gift. A lengthy list of books to choose from is available through this Amazon link. Books will be delivered straight to the Chatsworth library. Please make sure to note your child's name and birthday when you choose from the list so it can be properly labeled.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES!

If you have ordered your school supplies online at Futterman’s and have opted to pick them up yourself, you can pick them up starting Wednesday, August 15th.
If you have ordered school supplies online with delivery to school you don’t need to do anything! All online deliveries will be shipped to the school where the boxes will be sorted and sent to your child’s classroom.
If you haven’t ordered your school supplies online you can find the list of school supplies per grade here.

COFFEE MORNING WITH THE LICE LADY OF WESTCHESTER!

Kids love summer and so do lice! What better way to start our school year than to have the professionals from the Lice Lady of Westchester come to our school and educate Chatsworth parents on how to properly do a lice check? The Lice Lady will also demonstrate how to treat for head lice and talk about what you need to do around your house to ensure that the lice will not come back. Please join us on Friday, September 7th at 9:15 am in the WTP Cafeteria.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS

You may have heard that the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle (BGCNR) will be taking over the management of the After School Clubs for elementary schools within the Mamaroneck School District. The main difference for parents will be that registration and payment will take place through the BGCNR website, and that BGCNR will be the main point of contact.
We are in the midst of discussing fall offerings with BGCNR and will update you in September on which ASC will be running in the fall. Stay tuned!

FIFTH GRADE GIFT

Chatsworth’s 5th Grade class of 2017-2018 left their mark on the school, or rather on the school’s playground!
When school starts in September kids will be able to play even more games outside with the addition of two new boxball courts and a hopscotch game. You can find the new games near the Gaga pit area and the Dinosaur playground.
