FOUND: Student Eyeglasses

If your student has lost a pair of eyeglasses this year, please stop by the office to claim them! We have nine eyeglasses that have been collected since the beginning of the year - one could be yours. We would love to get them back to their rightful owner!!


Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. Everyone who participates is a winner!

Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Chico Police Department employs a very nice crossing guard for the safety of our students, however lately he has noticed some very unsafe practices. If you are parking on Manzanita Ave. to pick up your child - please coach your student to only cross the street at the crosswalk, with the crossing guard. David is witnessing our students dashing across Manzanita Ave in between cars. This is extremely dangerous and unnecessary. Utilize our crossing guard - that's what he is there for!!

In addition, please be courteous to other parents by pulling forward as far as you can when entering either of our parking lots. If you stop short, it creates more of a backup than is necessary.

Parent Survey

We would love Marigold parent feedback. Please follow the link below if you have a student here.

2018-2019 TK & Kinder Registration

Registration for the 2018-19 school year is ongoing now. To enter school in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018. To enter Transitional Kindergarten, a child must turn five between September 2, 2018 and December 2, 2018. Parents should register their children with the school serving their residence area. Proof of residence is required.

Parents are strongly encouraged to register on the above date. Priority will be assigned based on the date of registration. The time of day that registration occurs will not constitute a priority. All children will be accepted, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area. If your student is currently attending TK in the Chico Unified School District, there is no need to register again for kindergarten.

The following are required to register a child: (1) proof of date of birth is required (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency, and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department. Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry.
