Join Chabot Faculty on International Workers Day

Join the Chabot Faculty on Monday, May 1 at 8:15 am outside the front gates where they will be participating in remembering International Workers Day in a day of action.

Stand by our teachers in committing to every student being welcomed in OUSD regardless of their ethnicity or immigration status, where they were born, where they live, how they look, identify, whom they love, or which language(s) they speak.

Please join us in coming in together as one community as we enter our school! Read more here.

The city and all schools will also be participating in Oakland May Day March & Demonstration. The march goes from Fruitvale BART to San Antonio Park between 3-8 pm. There will be food and family-friendly activities. Read more here.

Family Reading Night Featuring Local Author Emma Bland Smith

Family Reading Night Featuring Local Author Emma Bland Smith

Because of all of the hard work of our Farmer’s Market staff and volunteers, and to all of you that shop at the market, it generated enough revenue to make a significant contribution back to Chabot.

Thanks to their support, we are having Emma Bland Smith, a local children’s author, at our upcoming Family Reading Night.

We hope you’ll join us Wednesday, April 26, 6:30-8:00 pm in the Chabot Library for this not-to-be-missed event!

The author will read from her book, Journey: Based on the True Story of Or7, the Most Famous Wolf in the West, sign copies of her book and answer questions. You can also buy copies of her book that evening.

This event is a fun way to boost your Read-a-thon minutes, as time spent at Family Reading Night earns double Read-a-thon credits. Don’t forget to bring your reading log!

And please let the Farmer’s Market staff know how much you appreciate their hard work and contributions by continuing to shop at the market!

Free Workshop: Raising Healthy Kids in a Commercialized World

Free Workshop: Raising Healthy Kids in a Commercialized World

When we were kids, our parents could turn off the TV to silence the barrage of commercials. Today, marketers target our children with ads using an array of online techniques that can be difficult to block or limit.

We are pleased to have Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood executive director Josh Golin visit Chabot to lead a workshop on Tuesday, April 25, from 6:15-7:30 pm in the MPR. He will describe what to look for and what we can do to give our kids the commercial-free time and space they need to thrive.

Childcare and pizza for kids will be provided. Please RSVP here so we can make sure to order enough pizza.
