    Ignite Adventure at AIG Summer Enrichment Camp

    We are excited to announce that Chatham County Schools is hosting two 4-day opportunities for 4th and 5th grade AIG students at Chatham Grove Elementary (June 21-24) or Virginia Cross Elementary school (June 28 - July 1). Transportation, breakfast, and lunch are available if needed.  

    This is a first-come, first-serve opportunity for identified AIG students. If your student works with Ms. Wilkie or Ms. Merilee as a Talent Development/Nurture student, they can still register, and if there is space, they can attend.

    The new reFUEL CGE needs your financial support!

    Chatham Grove Elementary students who have been receiving Fuel Up food assistance will be transitioning over to the new reFUEL CGE program starting this summer, and we need your financial support to make this happen.

    We will be following the reFUEL model by having nutritious shelf stable non-perishable food items delivered right to students’ homes, eliminating many of the obstacles traditional backpack programs run into.  In order to be able to continue providing our students with this valuable resource through the summer, and into the new school year, we will need to raise $5,000, and then continue fundraising throughout the year.  

    Supporting reFUEL CGE students is easy: make a monthly or one-time tax-deductible donation through *PayPal, or if you would prefer you can make your donation by *check.  

    • $60 a month will provide a student with 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 3 dinners & snacks each weekend for a month
    • $180 will cover that same student’s needs for the entire summer
    • $5 a month will even make a difference to a hungry child

    Please consider helping us help our hungry children.  Thank you!

    Exciting News….. reFUEL Chatham Grove will be starting this summer!!!

    Many of you are familiar with Fuel Up, the assistance program offered to food insecure students at Perry Harrison Elementary.  Students here at Chatham Grove Elementary (CGE) who are enrolled in the program have been getting their needs met through Perry Harrison’s Fuel Up but starting this summer CGE will have our own program – reFUEL Chatham Grove!  CGE will be joining the reFUEL program umbrella that currently provides services to Pollard Middle and Northwood High School students.  As such the program will provide food directly to students’ homes or other drop off point of their choosing, greatly reducing the manpower needed to run the program.  However, reFUEL CGE will still need some volunteers for the program to be a success.  If you have a desire to be involved in this much needed and worthwhile effort please consider joining us.  We are especially looking for people with grant writing experience, and people who are savvy with online food ordering.  You can email us at    

    And stay tuned for more news regarding fundraising opportunities!

Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Chatham Grove Elementary School, home of the …

    Well, the video below will answer that question. The mascot selection was based on your survey feedback. We very much appreciate your participation and sharing your voice. We hope to share our logo soon.

    The video features Marian Taylor. I am thrilled to announce that she is the assistant principal of Chatham Grove Elementary School. Ms. Taylor has broad educational experience that will greatly benefit our school. To date, Ms. Taylor has served as an instructional assistant for two years, and she was a fourth-grade teacher for six years, a time during which she mentored teachers. She was a math interventionist for a year and spent two years as a curriculum coach and mentor. Many of you may be familiar with her from her time as an assistant principal at Perry W. Harrison Elementary School and at Margaret B. Pollard Middle School. Through it all, Ms. Taylor has succeeded by focusing on strong relationships with both adults and students, and by always putting kids first. As part of the CGE team, Ms. Taylor will help us help our kids grow each and every day!

    OK, have fun with the video.
