PARENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

There are a wide variety of titles to choose from and the donation will be identified with a bookplate noting your child's birthday.

Coffee Clutch Series

Body Image through our Children's Eyes: Too fat. Too skinny. Not muscular enough. Too short. Not pretty. Even a cursory look at the statistics on children and their attitudes about their bodies and appearance is deeply disturbing. Faced with the task of providing our children with the tools for developing healthy attitudes and feelings about these critical aspects of self, it is pretty clear that we are failing on an epic scale. And of course, it's also clear that many of us harbor these ugly thoughts about ourselves as well. Please come to what will surely be an interesting morning on Wednesday, April 26th from 9:15-10:30am in the New Cafeteria and join Dr. Alan Dienstag and Dr. Katie Sawyer from the Larchmont Mamaroneck Counseling Center for a discussion about what we can do to banish the ugly thoughts and recognize what is beautiful about all of us and our children. CLICK HERE to register.

Spring Book Fair

Spring Book Fair, Monday May 1st - Thursday May 4th. Help us make this Spring's book fair another success! Please sign up for a shift via the sign up genius link HERE . This year's book fair will be held Monday May 1st - Thursday May 4th with special early morning hours on Wednesday the 3rd. Chatsworth's Book Fairs are a much anticipated event for students, parents, and teachers alike. In addition to earning thousands of dollars for the PTA and adding hundreds of books to our classrooms and library, the Book Fair encourages a culture of literacy within our school.

Summer COOP

Help Chatsworth Elementary send 10 kids to the Co-op Camp this year!

$3825 / $12000 raised so far! We can send 3 kids to camp already - help us sent more!

Did you know that inequitable summer experiences account for 2/3 of the achievement gap between high income and low income students?
Did you know that over 400 elementary students in our district can not afford summer programs?
Established over 40 years ago, Co-Op Summer Enrichment provides 6 weeks of academic & recreational experiences for 230 students from all 4 Mamaroneck School District elementary schools. This year, Co-Op will be led by the STEM Alliance of Larchmont-Mamaroneck, a local non-profit. The program serves mostly families who cannot afford to attend other local summer programs. The program also employs & mentors a diverse group of local teenagers to promote leadership & employment opportunities.
As a community, the Chatsworth PTA would like to raise $12,000 which will support the cost of 10 students this summer at the Co-op Camp.
Please consider donating HERE. All gifts are tax deductible and matching gifts are accepted.
Visit www.coopsummer.org for more information or questions about the program, registration and job opportunities.
