Nominate a CCS Distinguished Alum!!
Jot down this number or put it in your phone: 919-545-7975. Use it to nominate someone for the Chatham County Schools Distinguished Alumni Program. Think about someone who graduated at least 10 years ago from Chatham County Schools and deserves recognition. Leave the name of that person on the voicemail when you call 919-545-7975.
Community Stakeholder Meetings for Seaforth High School Attendance Zone
Chatham County Schools is constructing a high school on Seaforth Road. The projected opening for Seaforth High School is in the fall of 2021. Seaforth will possibly serve a portion of students who are presently assigned to PES. An integral part of the complex process of establishing the attendance zone for Seaforth High School is to hold Stakeholder Input Meetings.
All meetings will start at 6:30 pm and will be finished between 7:30 and 8:00 pm. "

Sign up to be a Thrift Store Volunteer!
Our volunteers at the Thrift Shop last year helped us to add over $20,600 to our budget for this year. This money pays for field trips, classroom and teacher support, schoolwide projects and clubs and a lot of fun events for the students and community.
We are really struggling to get volunteers to come out for workgroups this year. If the 6-8pm window isn’t working for your schedule, feel free to drop in AT ANY TIME and help in the store! Ask for the manager on duty and let them know you have some time and want to volunteer for Pittsboro Elementary School.
We have our workgroups scheduled through the end of 2019. Check out the schedule, grab a fellow mom or dad, and come out for just ONE workgroup! The hours add up and mean so much for the school!
