  • Chatham Grove Elementary School 

    Chatham Grove Elementary School

    Construction on Chatham Grove Elementary School, located on Andrews Store Road, is underway. The school is projected to open its doors to students in the fall of 2020 and could serve a portion of students currently assigned to Pittsboro, Perry W. Harrison and North Chatham elementary schools.

    The Chatham County Board of Education is seeking input prior toward establishing the attendance zone for Chatham Grove Elementary. Consequently, there will be three engagement sessions at the following locations and times:

    • Feb. 19 — North Chatham Elementary School, 6-7 p.m.
    • Feb. 21 — Perry Harrison Elementary School, 6-7 p.m.
    • Feb. 28 — Pittsboro Elementary School, 6-7 p.m.

    Stakeholders are welcome to attend one or more of the sessions regardless of current school assignment.

    The meeting agenda will consist of presenting stakeholders with data on both current and future Chatham County Schools enrollment projections alongside information related to the design, construction and opening of Chatham Grove Elementary. Stakeholders will be given an opportunity to pose questions and respond to a survey designed to gather additional information for the Board of Education to consider. The sessions will be facilitated by experts from N.C. State University’s Operations Research and Education Laboratory, a part of the Institute for Transportation Research and Education.

    We hope that you will be able to attend and be a part of helping with this important task. If you are unable to attend one of these sessions, you still will be able to participate in the survey.

    2019 Global Extravaganza

    Mark Your Calendars, February 28, 6:00-7:30 p.m.

    The 2019 Pollard Global Extravaganza is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 28 - 6:00-7:30 p.m.  We are excited about our annual "celebration of diversity."  Pollard is a great school because of each unique person that is a part of the Pollard family.


    Mark your calendars and plan to join us for this exciting event.  There will be student work on display, cultural displays, ethnic desserts to sample, and an amazing performance by Diali Cissokho (a renowned kora player and percussionist from the Casamance region of Senegal).


    As we are gearing up for the event, we need some help!  One component of the event is an "ethnic dessert sampling."  If you are able to provide a store/restaurant prepared ethnic dessert (we cannot accept home-made items), please contact Ms. Quinn ( or Ms. Smith (


    We also need volunteers to reach out to local restaurants for donations (we are unable to provide a tax ID # this year - we hope this will not keep community partners from helping out).  If you are interested in coordinating the effort to reach out to local restaurants, please contact Ms. Fady ( with Pollard’s PTSA. We have a list of restaurants/items donated from last year that can used.


    Another component of the event is our “culture fair.”  If you have a cultural connection you would like to celebrate, sign up for a booth/table to display information, artifacts, etc. (contact Mr. Charles, or Ms. Barnett-Lawrence,

    Parents are asked to complete a parent verification process before accessing their student's grade and schedule information via the Parent Portal. This is a one-time process and will need only to be completed in subsequent years if families enroll new students within Chatham County Schools.

  • Pollard Boosters LogoAthletic Gap is a way for your kids to stay at school (supervised) until game time on days when Pollard has home games.  (READ: one less trip for you to make shuttling your kid!) The cost for Athletic GAP is $2, and does not include the admission price to the game. Softball and soccer games are free admission. Basketball games cost $3. The Boosters Club sells concessions at games, so your child may want to bring extra money for that as well.
