It’s that time of the year again – Our Annual Arbor Day Variety Show is right around the corner.  I have placed sign-up sheets in the hallway outside of the main office.  If you are interested in the performing in the show, please sign up and stop by the office for a timeline of tryouts and practices dates.  Acts may include – singing, dancing, gymnastics, comedy routines, or playing your favorite instrument.  Let’s make this the best show ever!!

Reminder: There is an early dismissal today at 11:45 a.m. for CMS students.

Today, we are holding our 12th annual Battle of the Belts Competition here at Chatham Middle School.  Battle of the belts is a tradition that started at Sean’s Run.  Unfortunately statistics show that teens do not buckle up in the car and that car crashes are the number one cause of death for teens.  By hosting a preliminary battle of the belts competition here at Chatham Middle School, we are encouraging fellow students to make the right choice and put on a seat belt when they get into a car.  Our hope is that through this event we will raise awareness and encourage students to make positive decisions and be safe.

Today’s competition schedule is as follows: Grade 7 will compete period 1; grade 6-period 3; and grade 8-period 5The fastest team at each grade level will go on to compete at the World Championship Battle of the Belts, held during Sean’s Run on April 30th.Good luck to all teams today!
