    Peachjar Eflyers for Central Park

    Central Park's "Chameleons" team captured 1st place at Destination Imagination on Saturday, March 2nd. They competed in the Project Outreach: Service Learning Challenge presenting the problem of humans feeding ducks in parks.


    This team of Kinder to 3rd graders put together such a great project and skit, they will be heading to the California state level competition in April.


    Good luck Chameleons!!!!


    Chameleons at DI 1st place

    Destination Imagination is a project-based learning program designed to complement K-12 education. DI annually offers seven new academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts, service learning, and early learning. In solving a challenge, students learn the creative process from imagination to innovation and the skills needed to thrive in school, their careers and beyond.


    The Chameleons Destination Imagination Team is just one of the many teams in the Central Park STEAM Robotics Team, a 501.3c non-profit booster club founded by Central Park Elementary parents.

    Team Chameleon

    We nurture the development of the whole child who is then inspired to continually expand all aspects of his/her being (mind, body, heart) and is empowered to improve the world for others. We build habits of mind and ways of being that are caring, curious, reflective and visionary.
