What's Happening at Chestnutwold

  • Children's Friendships and Conflicts Presentation

    Children’s Friendships and Conflicts: What Every Parent Needs to Know. Thursday, November 17, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Chatham Park Auditorium. Presented by Catherine Mallam, Chatham Park School Counselor. Your daughter comes home distraught because her best friend left her out at recess. Your son got in a fight with a boy in his class whom he refers to as his “enemy.” And meanwhile we are bombarded with media accounts of bullying. Parents are left wondering: are boys’ and girls’ friendships different? What is normal conflict between children? When should I intervene; when should I step back? What is bullying? How can I support my child’s social development? Bring a friend and join us on November 17th to find out.

  • We are STEAM makers!

    Second and First Graders Tackle Pumpkin Challenge! Our goal of STEAM and our MakerSpace in the library is to inspire every Chestnutwold student to be an active learner by exploring new things: making, tinkering, imagining, building, researching, producing, creating, solving, thinking and collaborating with others. Look at how our students are creating designs with magnets, building electronic circuits, and designing structures, to name a few. Click here for more photos.
