Happy St. Patrick's Day to all our COS families!

On March 17, Irish and Irish Americans commemorate the death, as legend has it, of Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, who died on March 17, around 492. But mainly, people today honor Irish heritage and its rich culture and traditions. Cities all over the U.S. celebrate with parades and festivities. Whether you celebrate it or not, we send out "luck and happiness" to all your families and wish those that do celebrate a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Beckford 5th graders are flying at Wolf Camp

Last March 8-10th, the 5th grade went to Wolf Camp located in Simi Valley, CA. This was the 1st time since 2019 that a 5th-grade class got to enjoy this 5th-grade annual tradition. The camp focuses on science, team building, and adventure activities. The kids beamed with excitement as they enjoyed nature, spent quality time together and built lasting memories.

Looks who was CAUGHT READING!

Lots of happy readers at Chatsworth Park Magnet and Urban Planning. Reading week started off with our very own PTA providing a fun-filled assembly with guest authors: Adam T. Newman (Eva the Diva) and Joshua Hauke (Doom’s Day Camp) to entertain our Palominos with their newly released books. Students were given the opportunity to purchase one of their books and personally autographed by the author.

Our fabulous Chatsworth Park staff also hosted “Family Reading Night” where our Palominos dressed in their pajamas, enjoyed books that were read to them by our staff and enjoyed a cup of milk with some cookies. And closing out reading week we saw Palominos “caught reading”.

Introducing Aggeler High School by student Dominic

Chatsworth is a beautiful place to live in my opinion. There are malls around, good places to eat, and a lot of fun things to do in the area. But what about school? Chatsworth high school is always a good option, but some kids prefer a smaller environment. Maybe they focus better in a small environment, just like to be around fewer people or they might be struggling to succeed in school. If so, Aggeler High School might be the option for your child.

Aggeler High School is located at 21050 Plummer st, Chatsworth, CA. It is right next to the historic boys home, Rancho San Antonio. The opportunity school is named after William Tell Aggeler, and the school teaches grades 7-12th. The teachers and administrators are passionate about giving kids the education they need and deserve. There are many outlets for extra support, like tutoring and counseling.

The school meets and exceeds common core academic standards and helps students build the foundation that they need to become contributing members of society. These school hours are from 8:30 to 2:15. This shorter bell schedule allows students to have more time to focus on their mental health and extracurricular activities.

This school is rated a 3.7/5, which is a pretty good rating for an LAUSD school. Breakfast and lunch is also provided to the mighty mustangs of Aggeler High School. More about this school including upcoming events can be found at the schools official website, You can also contact them by calling (818) 341-1232
