  • Jump Rope for Heart

    Ms. Bowling

    Our Jump Rope for Heart program kicks off this Friday, January 26th! Over the next 2 weeks, our school will have fun working together to raise money for the American Heart Association (and our PHS Physical Education program)!

    *** Last year we earned $1,000 in PE equipment thanks to YOUR generosity to Jump Rope for Heart!! Our own PHS was the 9th highest fundraising school in THE STATE of NC!!

    Students can earn their own Scare Squad Monster backpack key chains (and much more) this year by using the new mobile app (download the Jump/Hoops App) or by visiting  to sign up and raise money online! Just for signing up to save lives, your child will earn a glow in the dark wristband! PLUS, the mobile app unlocks even more fun as the Scare Squad Monsters and wristband come to life!

    Students may pick up their “instant prizes” first thing each morning from Ms. Bowling at the gym! All donations to the American Heart Association are due by February 9th!

  • 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.

  • From our New Principal - Mrs. Amy Doty!  

    My name is Amy Doty and I am so very honored to be your next principal. I started my career as an ESL teacher at an elementary school in Durham. After teaching in the classroom for 7 years, I became an ESL lead teacher for the district. That whet my appetite for administration and I soon got my Master’s in Ed. Leadership at UNC-Chapel Hill. I started out as an AP at a middle school and then I took a leave of absence when Jason, my husband, and I had twin girls. Four years later I became the Assistant Principal at Seawell Elementary in Chapel Hill, where I stayed for close to 8 years. My last position was as the district coordinator of Dual Language and World Languages.
    I’m looking forward to meeting you all in the coming weeks!
