The STEM Alliance Tinkering Nights are back!

The first Tinkering Night at Chatsworth is Thursday, November 30th from 6:00 to 7:30pm for students in grades 3 to 5. The K-2 Tinkering Night will be held in March 2018.

This year, you can "connect with your kids" as you explore circuits, conductivity and energy sources. Electrical circuits are at the heart of making and tinkering. They make any craft come alive with lights, sounds and movement. Come see how you can take your arts and crafts projects to a new level. You will get to make glow bugs and add LED lights to origami projects, as well as explore different aspects of electricity at various stations. Continue the fun at home by purchasing tinkering kits!

This event is open to Chatsworth grade 3-5 students only. Space is limited, so REGISTER NOW! To register please CLICK HERE. This event is FREE to participants in part to the teacher and parent volunteers and your generous donations. Please consider volunteering the night of the event or helping prepare for it on Tuesday, November 28th between 9:00 and 11:00am or 6:00 to 8:00pm. Please contact Antonella Kauffman at akauffman@lmstemalliance.org for more information.

COFFEE CLUTCH SERIES

Wednesday December 13th from 12:00-1:15pm in Room 104. Good enough children: a conversation about expectations, parental pressure, children's achievement and self esteem. We want our children to be their best selves in every aspect of their lives, but how do we decide where to set the bar and what do we do when they fall short? As parents we are faced with decisions each and every day about how to motivate, encourage, and cajole our children through obstacles to their success, achievement and maturation. The choices we make in these circumstances have a profound impact on our relationships with our children. Join us as we share stories of successful and unsuccessful "pushing" and provide you with guidelines for when to push and when to try something different.
Please sign up here HERE to attend.
