Dear Chatham Middle School Families:

We welcome you and your child to Team Seven! This year your child will be expected to master the New York State 7th Grade Common Core Curriculum standards. Team 7 will provide a varied and challenging program with opportunities for all students to succeed. We will have a wide range of activities including our end of the year Boston trip.

Mr. Boykin, Special Education

Mrs. Debye-Saxinger, English language arts/Team Leader


Mr. Luttinger, Spanish

It is extremely important for all students to be organized and prepared to learn. Students are expected to arrive to each class with a pen or pencil, subject materials, and agenda book (provided by the school district).
