Chatham Central School District held our Opening Conference Day September 4th. The morning portion of the day served to bring all district employees together to celebrate the start of the 2018-19 school year and champion our mission as a public school. As employees arrived, everyone received a new black E2 shirt to go with the red shirt handed out last year when we unveiled E2 for the first time.
In his opening day address, Dr. DeAngelo talked about Chatham’s Everyone, Everyday (E2) motto and the power of the little things in life – how creating even small positive moments in someone’s life can have a dramatic, long-lasting impact. “We want to make sure everybody feels connected here in Chatham. You might be the only reason a student comes to school every day,” Dr. DeAngelo told the staff. “Life is about moments. Create them, don’t wait for them!”
After the opening program, staff headed to their respective schools for departmental level meetings and to make their final preparations for when students arrive Wednesday, September 5th.
