Chatterton PTA Monday Memo


We look forward to hosting our Annual Open House evenings for all families!  These sessions will provide an opportunity for you to meet your child’s teacher(s) for the new school year and hear important information about this year’s curriculum, class procedures, and routines.  The virtual open house sessions will take place via Zoom and you will receive a link for the meeting directly from your child’s teacher.   Special area teachers and all support staff will also be available via Zoom to speak to all families.  Those links will be sent in an email to all families.
We thank you for your diligence in bringing your children to school on time.  Our arrival procedures have been running very smoothly with all students in the building by 8:38 AM!  This is a wonderful and smooth start to the day and enables all students to be ready to learn in their classrooms by 8:40AM!  Please keep in mind that the back of the building is reserved for car drop-off from 8:25-8:43AM.  Please do not utilize the bus loop for drop-off.
There is a Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, September 14th at 7:15 PM.
School will be closed on Thursday, September 16th in observance of Yom Kippur.
Have a wonderful week!

Don’t forget to order lunch for October!
Ordering is open from 9/12-9/20.  Boonli WebsitePlease consider volunteering any time or service to the Chatterton PTA.  We are always looking to grow as a community with our families and school.  Attached you will find a list of the committees with an explanation of each and a corresponding sign-up form.
They were also included in your child’s placement packets and are worth exploring.

Please place a check mark next to the committee(s) on which you would like to volunteer. If you would like to chair a committee, please place a letter “C” next to the committee name. Committee chairs are responsible for administrating and organizing the event/committee, gathering volunteers and obtaining proper insurance forms where applicable. Co-chairing is also an option for most committees in which duties can be shared amongst two or more chairs.

If you have any questions about the committees and would like more information, you may email
