[News release from Our Community School in Chatsworth]
Our Community School is excited to announce its Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on September 21st at 7:30 a.m. to commemorate the opening of its new library for its K-8th graders.
Our Community School, 10045 Jumilla Ave. in Chatsworth, believes in the magic of a good book and has invested in this magic by creating a new library for its students. In 2011, with the generous donation of books and time from its local community and Access Books, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to provide quality, high-interest books to school, classroom and community libraries, a corner of its computer lab was dedicated to a small library of approximately 1000 books for its students. However, Our Community School had a bigger dream for its library and its students, and this past summer Our Community School fulfilled that dream by acquiring 10,000 additional books, and with the hard-work of Our Community School volunteer parents and relatives a beautiful library has been created.
The new space is warm and inviting and is a place where Our Community School’s kindergarten through 8th grade classes can continue to foster their imagination, creation, and knowledge.
On Friday, September 21st at 7:30am Our Community School in Chatsworth invites the local community to its Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to commemorate its new library and honor its generous donors and volunteers. A reception hosted by its parent group, Panda Partners will follow. Additionally, Panda Partners will be hosting an e-waste event the same day and welcomes printers, televisions, and other electronics.
Our Community School is a tuition-free, public charter school where staff members, students and families collaborate in the ongoing process of education.
