Capital Project Survey
Thank you to everyone who voted in the capital project survey! The top five projects were: greenhouse, school sign, front exterior solar lighting, buddy benches and contributing to library improvements. The majority of those voting preferred that we spend the money on multiple small projects instead of one large one. The next step is to gather more information about the feasibility of implementing each project which includes getting approval from school/district administration. Anyone who is interesting in helping with this process, please email chathamparkpresident@ gmail.com.
5th Grade Artist In Residence Project
