Good News!

The Piedmont Triad Education Consortium recognized North Chatham Elementary as one of twenty two Signature Schools during a celebration breakfast this past Friday. The following video was shared at the awards ceremony. Thank you for everything you do daily to make NCE the awesome place that is for children!!!


Way to go Digital Learners! Lynn Harrington and Loretta Hackney were two NCE winners from the Digital Learning Dayz! Whoop Whoop!


NCE is getting a new SRO! Beginning mid March, NCE will begin sharing a resource officer with Perry Harrison. Anthony (Duke) Norton will be our new SRO. Deputy Norton has been in law enforcement for approximately nine years and with the Sheriff Department for two years. He is a Chatham Native and his office will be here at NCE. Join me in welcoming Deputy Norton to the NCE family.

Reminders/Updates:

Spring Pictures - March 7th


Playground installation is now scheduled for this Monday! Until the updates are complete, it is necessary for all grade levels to play in other locations. Please work as a grade level to plan for supervision if you decide to use the following areas:


  • Ball Field (by the road)
  • Ball Field
  • Soccer Field
  • MPR (this areas is not big enough for an entire grade level. If you would like to use this area, please work on a rotation across the grade level. One class per day using this area would be ok. Also, please do not allow kids to kick balls up to ceiling tiles. This requires lots of work to repair.)


LAST CHANCE to complete an application for a possible Steam Grant! North Chatham PTA has $8,143 t STEAM education grants! We are now accepting grant applications to award STEAM grants for the classroom(s). Please complete the survey at the following link: STEAM PTA Teacher Grant


Chatham 360 Award:

Our Leadership Team will work to select a student that for the Chatham 360 award. This student will be one that demonstrates a commitment to uplift their schools or communities. A worthy student, for example, would be one who establishes a student-lead community service club, or a student who leads a fundraising initiative. It might even be that student who just puts a smile on everyone’s face and lifts the spirits of those around them. Service, attitude, and a commitment to making their school a great place to be are fantastic criteria from which to start your consideration. Eligible students must demonstrate one of the following core beliefs of the school district:


*All students can learn given the appropriate supports and time.
*Our society depends on a strong public-education system.
*Learning is a lifelong process.
*Everyone should strive for personal growth and success.
*Education is a shared responsibility between educators, parents, students and the community.
*Supportive, safe and nurturing school environments are essential for all students.
*Technology is a catalyst for personal, professional and academic success.


Please share any names/nominees that you have with an SLT rep. before our meeting this week.


Consider completing a Positive Office Referral this week!
