Teacher and Nurse Appreciation Week proved that our Chatterton teachers, teaching assistants, and school nurse are appreciated beyond belief!  The cards, letters, videos and signs of gratitude really brightened our week!  We look forward to the PTA sponsored luncheon this coming week!  Thank you all for taking the time to show your appreciation for our hard working, committed Chatterton staff members.  We appreciate you too!

Our upper grade students completed the NYS Math Assessments last week. The tests were indeed challenging, but our students persevered and utilized the multiple strategies they have been taught. We are very proud of our third through sixth graders for the effort they provided.

This year, National Police Week begins on May 9th and runs through May 15th. National Police Week pays special recognition to the law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others, and recognizing the noble sacrifices of these brave men and women is important to us.  In the spirit of recognizing the contributions of these heroic law enforcement officers, many of our students participated in the “Thank a Law Enforcement Officer” program by constructing a card that included a message of gratitude to the men and women who serve as law enforcement officers.

It is hard to believe that May is upon us and we are already looking ahead to the next school year.  This Tuesday, we will hold our annual Kindergarten Orientation. Spread the word to your neighbors who have children entering kindergarten!  We look forward to seeing new faces and familiar ones too.  Chatterton School is excited to welcome our incoming kindergarten class in September.

There will be no school for students on Thursday, May 13th for Superintendent’s Conference Day.  Eid Mubarak to those families who are celebrating Eid al-Fitr.

Have a great week!

Dana Bermas

  • The Chatterton PTA’s Culturtal Arts Program is pleased to announce that on Tuesday, May 11th, our second and third graders will participate in a virtual assembly entitled “Virtual Music Technology” presented by Brent Daniels.  Brent Daniels is a 25-year entertainment industry veteran and award-winning music producer, composer, and sound designer who uses the latest technology to sculpt sound and create music for Marvel Studios, Disney Studios, HBO, Netflix, and more.  Broadcasting from his production studio, Mr. Daniels utilizes a cinema quality multi-camera set up, high quality audio, and a unique approach to remote audience interactivity.  The dynamic program shows students the important relationship between the technology we use everyday, and the creation of music and sounds heard in movies, games, and in our lives. Student volunteers will participate to help Mr. Daniels create unique, on the spot sounds.  The program has received rave reviews and we are so happy to bring it to Chatterton.
