Lunch Price Increase for 2015-2016 School Year

Starting this September, lunch at CHS will cost $2.60. The ten-cent price increase is due to a federal mandate (the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act) which requires schools to bring what they charge for regular-priced meals in line with what the US Department of Agriculture reimburses schools for meals provided to students receiving free and reduced price meals. Our breakfast prices remain unchanged, as do reduced-priced meals.


Free & Reduced Meals Available for Those Who Qualify - Apply Today

Families who may need assistance paying for school meals are encouraged to complete a Free and Reduced Meals Application. A new application must be submitted each school year for those who wish to receive free or reduced-price meals. Learn more about free & reduced price meals...

Five Students Complete Internships Through CEIP

Five Chatham seniors completed a learning experience this spring through our Career Exploration Internship Program (CEIP). Sierra Curtsinger interned at Columbia Memorial Hospital while Adrian Drake interned at Rich Kraham Design and The Chatham Press. Megan Persons and Danielle Purdue both interned at the Mary E. Dardess Elementary School. Skyler Niles' internship involved creating her own business and job shadowing a human resources manager. They participated in a non-paid internship for 54 hours and complete 27 hours of classroom instruction time. Work-based learning coordinator and high school business teacher, Michael Loomis, who directs the internship program, said, “It was a very positive experience for all five students. It’s been amazing to hear about their time spent at the internships and with their mentors, seeing what it is like to do the job they are considering for their career.” Learn more...
