Canoga Park Chatsworth Community of Schools Middle School Fair in partnership with Chatsworth Charter High School

Nov 9 2021 - 6:00pm

PDF icon Middle School Fair Flyer.pdf

We are excited to announce a special event for the current 5th grade families at our local elementary schools. On November 9, 6:00-8:00pm, on the campus of Chatsworth High School, Lawrence, Columbus and Nobel Middle Schools will be showcasing their SAS and Magnet programs for our elementary schools as families are making choices for middle school options. As you know, the Choices application is currently open and due by November 12. This will be a great opportunity for families to come to one fair to learn about the different schools in our COS and the programs offered to make the right decision for their child. In addition, Chatsworth High School will also be showcasing their Magnet High School program for any Middle School students that are exploring options, so we encourage current 8th graders to join in as well.

ELPAC RESOURCE

English Language (EL) Parents

The following is a video that demonstrates how you can practice the English Language Assessments for California (ELPAC) with your child. The Summative ELPAC test is administered annually in the spring to all English Language Development students. Practicing the test will help your child become familiar with the format and help ensure your child's best performance. The ELPAC test will most likely be administered remotely beginning in March (online) by your child's teacher. If you have any questions please contact America Castagnola, TSP Coordinator at axb5385@lausd.net.

Here is the youtube video: https://youtu.be/_O1TdYSSAko
