  • Carolina Meadows Seniors Celebrate Yearlong

    Pen Pal Program with North Chatham Elementary Students

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Students from North Chatham Elementary are getting the ultimate

    lesson in respecting - and learning from - their elders as part of a yearlong pen pal

    program with Carolina Meadows seniors. Over the school year, Ms. Emchs’ fourth grade

    class wrote their Carolina Meadows pen pals once a month, asking questions, sharing

    stories and creating lasting friendships. Now, the pen pals are getting the opportunity to

    meet each other face to face during a celebratory luncheon on Thursday, May 12.

    “Carolina Meadows believes strongly in fostering intergenerational activities,” said Amy

    Gorely, vice president of strategic initiatives and community outreach. “The pen pal

    partnership is an excellent example – bringing benefit to both students and residents as

    well as creating a more vibrant and cohesive Chatham County community.”

    The creative program focuses on increasing literacy, reflection, and informative and

    inquisitive writing skills through written correspondence. Resident mentors share their

    experience, perspective, and learnings with students giving them the opportunity to

    consider what they have learned and how it may impact their understanding of the world.

    “This pen pal project has been an enriching experience for NCE students,” said Carla

    Murray, principal of North Chatham Elementary. “Carolina Meadows residents shared

    their school experiences with our fourth graders. These students have a new purpose for

    writing. They look forward to meeting their new friends soon.”

    Media is invited to attend the luncheon celebration Thursday, May 12 at noon in Carolina

    Meadows’ private dining room. For further information or to schedule an interview,

    please contact Alyssa Rosenberg, (919) 932-9985.

    Photo/Video Policy: Pictures and videos are allowed as long as they do not include

    childrens’ faces.

  • Changes in bus schedules due to Lystra Road closure:

    On January 18th, the Department of Transportation closed Lystra Road between Farrington Point and Jack Bennett Road and set up detours for traffic. The Department of Transportation has urged drivers to use caution in the area and expect delays.

    Therefore, our buses are expected to follow the posted detour signs and we will have temporary bus route changes until this road reopens.

    Bus 180 will follow their normal stops/times.

    The following are the delays that we are anticipating:

    Bus 37 will be delayed 10 – 15 minutes in the morning and in the afternoon will be delayed 20-30 minutes.

    Bus 179 1st run will run on time. Bus 179 2nd run will experience a 25 to 30 minute delay morning and afternoon.

    All other buses will have normal morning pickup times but afternoon drop off times will be delayed by 20 – 30 minutes.

    Thank you for being patient with drivers during this time.

    See you in the morning.

  • Wiley

    The Chatham Arts Council is the recipient of a leadership gift from Chatham Homes Realty, made in recognition of the pilot year of the council’s Chatham Artists-in-Schools Initiative.

    The Chatham Homes Realty Theatre Arts Residency at North Chatham Elementary will take place in April 2016 with nationally recognized artist Mike Wiley.

    Kris and Dwayne Howard, owners of Chatham Homes Realty, made the naming gift. They think the arts are important for business owners in Chatham County. “The arts build community, bringing people from every walk of life together. This social cohesion makes our community more vibrant, which benefits all business owners,” says Howard. Their family also has a personal connection to the arts—both of their children graduated from the NC School of the Arts. She notes they chose this residency program because “the arts make kids more well-rounded. Some turn to sports, and other students look to the arts to supplement their academic efforts. We don’t want to lose arts in schools, especially since that’s the first place there are budget cuts. This gift helps us give back to the community that helped our children grow into their arts careers.”

    Wiley's one-man production, Jackie Robinson: A Game Apart, teaches history in an engaging way through the arts. The Chatham Homes Realty Theatre Arts Residency fulfills the arts council’s dual focus of investing in local artists and educating students through the arts.

    This residency is a partnership between Chatham Arts Council and Chatham County Schools. Funding is through a grant from the NC Arts Council’s cARTwheels program, with a monetary match from Chatham County.

    Chatham Arts Council’s Artists-in-Schools Initiative will supplement school efforts to provide arts experiences for Chatham students. A second residency is in progress at Virginia Cross Elementary School. Professional performing artists Serena Ebhardt and David zum Brunnen, also Chatham County residents, are working with fifth graders to create a script they will produce into a school-wide theatrical production complete with music, art, and technology.

    Thanks for helping to make this a great event for the school!

    Two very important events will be happening on Thursday night and you will

    be able to participate in both thanks to technology. First, North Chatham

    will host our annual Science Night in conjunction with the North Carolina

    Science Festival. North Chatham will be buzzing with science activities and

    free pizza from 6:00 – 7:30. Next, the 2016 Chatham County Showcase of

    Schools hosted by the Chatham Education Foundation will occur on the same

    evening at Jordan Matthews High School from 6:00 – 7:30. We decided to

    embrace the challenge of two events the same evening with the use of

    event that works best for your family!

     

    Spring Fling is just around the corner and parents are busy putting together

    baskets for the classroom basket raffle!   In the past we’ve been able to

    raffle off incredible prizes like i-pads and weekends at the beach — all

    because of donations from North Chatham families! To ensure we have

    equally amazing baskets this year, please send in your donations THIS WEEK

    so Room Parents have enough time to build their baskets. Donations should

    be sent to your Room Parent or Classroom Basket Coordinator.

    Thank you and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning!

    All grade levels are in the process of including an Intervention/Enrichment time during their day. Intervention/Enrichment time is a 30 to 40 minute block of time daily. Teachers across the grade level will use data to group and regroup kids with teachers on that grade level to support growth in the areas of reading and math. Groups will adjust often. Ask your child about what they do during I/E time and whom they are working with during this time. Please ask your child’s teacher about this during conferences if you have additional questions.
