    Our first graders are loving our Continents PBL. So far we have traveled throughout North America and Europe. We have talked about famous landmarks in these countries like: Banff National Park, Stonehenge, the Eiffel Tower, Niagra Falls and many others. Students have studied the American artist, Jackson Pollack, and the French painter, Georges Seurat. We have also played games from each continent. Our first graders have been so inquisitive and intrigued with each continent. This week we will continue our journey through Europe and we will "fly" to Asia later in the week!


    We enjoyed seeing all of the wonderful costumes our 1st graders wore. In each of our classrooms, we celebrated Halloween with spider cider and a pumpkin design challenge. It was a blast! Our team dressed up like story book characters from Mo Willem's books.

    Info & Update Notices

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I was informed that closing the playgrounds is tough on parents that are waiting for older siblings to get out of school.

    Thus, we will keep the Kindergarten area open. We just ask you to please supervise students, as we often observe students playing in unsafe manners and not abiding by the rules we enforce during the school day.

    The 1st-2nd grade play structure and 3-5 structure will remain closed until 6pm. These are used by our Extended Day program and it is too difficult for them to supervise their own students in addition to others.

    Thank you,
    Ms. Kamstra

    Central Park Robotics Teams Score Big at FIRST LEGO League! Posted 11/14/18

    On Sunday, November 4th, three FIRST LEGO League teams from Central Park traveled to Monticello Academy to face off against both elementary and middle schools in robotics competition. Ms. Berger was was in the crowd cheering our Chameleons on!
    Supernovas
     
    Team Supernovas, consisting of five 4th graders, took 11th place in the robot game. They did an outstanding job in just 2 months of work putting together a game plan solving multiple missions with their design. They beat 3 middle school teams in the robot game!

    CatsLoveMars
     
    Team Cats Love Mars, consisting of a mix of 4th and 5th graders, took 4th place in the robot game and the Champion's Award advancing to the Silicon Valley District Championship. They suffered technical difficulties at the tournament rendering some of their equipment useless and had to improvise with the limited resources available.
     
    Red Rangers
     
    Team Red Rangers, consisting of 3rd and 4th graders, took 8th place in the robot game out of 16 teams. This was an amazing finish for the Central Park team taking on teams of kids who were mostly 4th to 9th graders! The teams they beat included 3 middle school teams! Even more surprising is that the Red Rangers pulled off this feat in only 2 months solving mission challenges!
     
    Great effort Chameleons!
