My name is Kirk Nascimento and I am honored to be your principal for the new academic year. Calvert Charter for Enriched Studies believes in helping each child meet their potential. With an incredible staff, we will strive to bring the strengths of each child to the forefront using the arts and technology. This goal cannot be met without the amazing parents and community members that are an active part of their children’s lives. We are implementing the new Common Core State Standards and welcome you to visit and help us with this endeavor. Calvert Alumni have gone on to be leaders and achieve incredible accomplishments . We look forward to continuing this legacy and teaching our students to use technology to better their lives. Come join us for our Second Saturdays to help beautify our campus and keep Calvert Elementary an academic stronghold and beautiful oasis for our community. We look forward to a productive year where we will achieve even greater things.

Morning Drop Off and Driveway
The safety and well-being of our students is of the up,it's concern. Keeping this in mind, there are three areas which need to be followed to address this goal...
~Our school grounds open at 7:30am. Supervision is not provided prior to 7:30am. If you need to drop off your children before 7:30am, Creative Kids is a paid option that is available. Please call 818-471-7454 to discuss enrollment. Please do not drop your children off in front of the school or inside the school prior to 7:30am.
~When dropping off students please pull up all the way to the telephone pole before dropping off your children. This will allow the flow of traffic to continue. If you would like to volunteer to assist during drop off and pick up please come to the office or call 818-347-2681.
~Please cross at the cross walk when walking your children to school. This will help Calvert to continue having a safe traffic zone.
