Chatham Middle Celebrates International Heritage
On Tuesday, October 14th, Chatham Middle School celebrated International Heritage. Countries representing the cultures of our students were set up in the media center. Volunteers and family members shared about their country's culture along with pictures and items for visitors to view. The Student Council provided face painting and piñatas for the children. Many community partners provided information about services provided in the community. "It was a great night to see so many students with their families coming together to celebrate," said Mrs. Mary Lee Moore, media specialist and organizer of the event.
FUEL UP BACKPACK PROGRAM
Chatham Middle has partnered with First United Methodist Church of Siler City to initiate a Fuel Up Backpack program. The program provides weekend meals for CMS 6th grade students who are food insecure. "We are excited to be able to partner with the church to provide a service for our students that did not exist. The backpacks will provide nutritious food for students that otherwise my go without," stated Mr. Morgan. If you would like to help support the backpack program, you can make monetary donations at the school that will go directly to First United Methodist Church. "We are excited to have a community partner and look forward to the backpack program growing."
