3rd Grade

3rd grade has such a great time at the Woodland Township Municipal Building. Mrs. Brown was a wealth of knowledge and elaborated on topics we learned about in Social Studies class. She taught us all about the different local government offices and their responsibilities. We also learned about the local court system, how meetings are held, and even some Chatsworth history! The children were all smiles, very respectful, and thankful to have this opportunity!

Accepting Members & Donations

Purpose of the Woodland Education Foundation

The Foundation raises private sector funds to support academic initiatives and capital improvements at the Chatsworth Elementary School. This will be done largely through awarding teacher innovation grants and working with the Board of Education and school administration to identify target projects.


Profile of the Successful Board Member

The minimum time commitment for a board member includes 2 hours per month for the regular board meeting. However, the Foundation’s success in building and maintaining community support comes from board members that are able to make contributions of time and resources, have the determination to complete projects in a timely way with little oversight, and, most importantly, have a passion for true excellence in education!


Qualifications

Reflecting the community-wide impact of a strong public school system, the goal of the board is to be composed of individuals with varied backgrounds. Everyone willing to roll up their sleeves is welcome! Given the nature of our events and projects, we strongly encourage individuals to apply if they have specific experience in project management, public and media relations, marketing, fundraising, web design, and/or event planning.


Benefits of Board Membership

Members receive no compensation for serving on the Foundation’s Board. Low overhead and organizational cost ensures that the Foundation is able to direct the maximum amount of all donations towards initiatives in Chatsworth Elementary School. Board Members may get opportunities to work closely with PTOs, school administrators and District personnel. They can also help determine which projects, grants, and initiatives should receive Foundation sponsorship. Helping to create supplementary financial support for our schools is one of the most important and effective methods for fostering sustained academic innovation and excellence.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten has spent the last few weeks doing an author study with Eric Carle books. They started with the very popular The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Along the way, the class realized that this author likes to write fiction books about things found in nature... specifically insects and animals. The students made an art project to go with many of the main characters in Mr. Carle's books . Mrs. Casano decorated the hallway with many grouchy ladybugs, busy spiders, greedy snakes, baby seahorses and foolish turtles.
