News & Notes

Support the Chatham Education Foundation for a Safe Return to School!
The School District of the Chathams has incurred over $1,000,000 in costs and reductions in revenues due to COVID-19. Given New Jersey's current financial situation, the Board of Education has stated that state aid will likely be further reduced. Funding from Chatham Education Foundation is critical to supplement tax funding to meet programming needs. We need your support to fund these grants and the additional grants to come..

This August, Chatham Education Foundation (CEF) awarded $31,600 in new grants across the School District of the Chathams to help get our students back to school. Overall, CEF has awarded over $1.5 million since our inception.

We acknowledge that there is work to do, and we all have a role to play in order to improve the world we pass on to our children.

  • "Thank you CEF for the pen tablets that you purchased for my classroom two years ago. I cannot believe how much the world (and educational system) has changed in such a short time. These tablets have been a tremendous help to our teaching staff and students. I had the opportunity to demonstrate how these tablets could enhance our instructional practice to some of the teachers in our mathematics department. It has changed how we will prepare and deliver some of our instructional components this year. Thank you again for the hard work that you do for our students, staff, and school community. Looking forward to a great school year! " - Carmelo Sortino, CHS Math Teacher
