At the beginning of each school year, we hold assemblies with each grade level. The purpose is to discuss our Code of Conduct and expectations for the school year. But even more so it is to emphasize our goals of showing respect and responsibility each day in what we do, how we act and what we say.  One way we do this is by highlighting the bucket filling program, which is based on the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carole McCloud. Read along with Ms. McCloud here: While the concept of bucket filling may seem juvenile and only for young children, the lessons transcend the ages. Chatterton students overwhelmingly have great manners, so we talked with our students about how manners and common courtesy are bucket filling, but there’s more we can do. We hope more and more students continue to demonstrate bucket filling qualities like empathy and inclusivity throughout this school year.  We look forward to recognizing our students’ efforts and are hoping for a year of full buckets for all!

We are fortunate in Merrick to utilize a variety of web-based supplemental curriculum programs that students and teachers will have access to throughout this school year. Clever will hold links to these programs including IXL, Think Central, Keyboarding Without Tears, and many others. Your child has received login information for Clever. Based on grade level and curriculum your child may access one or more of these programs at some point of the school year.  If you have any questions concerning one of these programs, please contact your child’s teacher.

This past week we held our first bus drill of the school year. Please take a moment to reinforce safe bus behavior with your child to ensure a pleasant ride to and from school for all students.

Our Open Houses were a great success.  Our teachers shared tons of important and valuable information.  We hope you had your questions answered and will feel comfortable contacting your teachers throughout the school year should more arise.

Have a great week!


We are so excited to announce that our PTA Friday Ice Cream is back and will start on Friday, October 15.

In order to make this possible we will offer a single flavor to our students each week.   Ordering will be through our BOONLI system.
No cash will be accepted and the flavor of the week will be on the ordering menu.
Ordering is now open and will close on Wednesday 9/29 midnight. Please add/update your order for Friday’s 10/15, 10/22 and 10/29.
Please help spread the word about this to those not on social media.
The cost of each ice cream will be $1.25.
Like our current lunch vendors, the Friday ice cream orders will be sorted and bagged by class for ease of distribution.

We want to thank Ms Bermas for her continued support with our PTA programs. Also, our TA’s and the staff at Chatterton have gone above and beyond to support our children and our families. Thank you! ❤️
There have been a lot of things going on behind the scenes by your Chatterton PTA to make this all possible for our students. You can help support these efforts by joining the Chatterton PTA as well.
We are certain the children are excited as we are  about the return of Friday ice cream!  

The Birthday Board is something all the students really enjoy walking by and embrace the  chance to acknowledge a classmates’ or their own birthday.
Slowly working our way back to the way it used to be, we are now accepting pictures to affix on their birthday announcement.
If you wish to submit a picture for your child, please do so ASAP.  The deadline for submission, no matter what month your child celebrates, will be October 8, due to building access still being limited.
Please write the name and birthday on the back of the picture. Please understand there is a chance these pictures may not be returned.

Need one less thing to think about? Forget about cooking and enjoy some delicious Chinese food for lunch and/or dinner:
Monday, September 27th from 11AM-9PM
at Danny’s Chinese
2370 Merrick Road in Bellmore
Mention “Chatterton PTA”, and Danny’s will donate 10% of the cost of your order to the Chatterton PTA!

Please stay tuned for details for the upcoming PTA meeting, Monday October 4 and the Fall Festival that will be take place at the end of the month.

We encourage everyone to get involved and volunteer any time or service to the Chatterton PTA.
We are always looking to grow as a community with our families and school.
(As a reminder, you must sign up for the PTA each year.)
