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


The 5th Grade Artist in Resident Project will be transforming the entryway of the school with the help of local artist Esther Cohen Eskin.  The project will be a paint and broken tile mosaic mural that will involve every 5th grade student.  The mural will be completed during the week of April 28 – May 2, and we will need the help of 5th grade parents to work on the mural.  Please click here to sign up for a shift.  We are also looking for donations of supplies from the entire Chatham Park community.   Please click here to sign up to donate an item or two.  Supplies can be placed in the AIR box outside of the office or contact Sonya Klimuk to make arrangements for larger items at 610-909-2512 or sonyaklimuk@me.com.
