Educational Enrichment

The Chabot PTA funds the following programs to enrich the curriculum and education of Chabot students.

Art

All grades attend weekly art classes; works of art by Chabot students are also featured around the campus in an array of ongoing displays.

Music

From chorus to percussion to movement to instrumental music, children of every age make music at Chabot.

Library

All classes visit Chabot’s Library each week.

Media/Technology

Instruction in Chabot’s dedicated Library Media Lab is provided for all students in third, fourth and fifth grades and includes research, touch typing, word processing and other computer skills.

Spanish

The Chabot PTA funds Spanish instruction for all kindergarteners. Optional before- and after-school Spanish programs are available for all grade levels at an additional cost to participants.

Science*

* While Science is not one of the traditional enrichment programs, for the last few years, the PTA has funded a specialist to supplement the Science that classroom teachers provide. This enables classrooms to use special Full Option Science System (FOSS) kits that are time consuming to set up, allowing each grade level to go more in depth on Science.

School Garden

The formal garden program went on hiatus during the new building construction in 2008-2010. The focus now is on rebuilding the garden so it can be used for outdoor learning and enrichment.
