Registering your children

Online Registration Begins July 21 and Ends August 1 - Walk-in Registration August 7
Online registration for the 2014-15 school year begins Monday, July 21, and will close August 1.

Walk-in registration will take place August 7 from 3 to 6 p.m. for BES, CES, GES, GMS & GHS. Walk-in registration for GIS will be held August 7 at Ball Elementary, from 3 to 6 p.m. Parents of returning students who choose to attend walk-in registration will be directed to complete their child’s registration online in their school’s computer lab. Staff will be on hand to assist if needed.  New families will still need to fill out paperwork, however, as they are not in the district’s Skyward system.

Online Registration Tutorial is found here and under Parent/Families drop down. Transcript is also available under the Parent/Familes drop down menu.

Attention Parents:

School is almost back in session and the SchoolKidz School Kits are arriving. Please be sure that if you ordered a kit for grades K-8 that you pick it up at the Glenwood Intermediate School at the Field house. (Drive along the west side of the Field house and pull around back. The entrance is a large roller door on the northwest corner.) The date for kit pickup is August 7th between the hours of 3-6 p.m. For those who forgot to order a kit for grades K-4th, there are extras so feel free to come and buy one. They are on a first come first served basis. Please note that we do not have any extra kits for grades 5th-8th. Thank you and see you there. If you have any questions you can contact Heather Hammon at chathamschoolkits@gmail.com.

In order to ensure that students are following staff directives and to further facilitate student safety, we have changed the end-of-day release. Our new procedures are as follows:

·               All students who participate in extra-curricular activities, walk home, or are picked up from school will be dismissed at 3:25 p.m. 
·               Students who ride a bus home from school are to stay with their ninth hour teacher until an announcement is made that their bus has arrived.  
Please know that students are being monitored so that they have enough time to go to their lockers, get their materials and get to their buses on time.  We appreciate your support in relation to these new procedures.


SWAT Update:  Survey shows that GMS students can answer the following questions:  What should you do if you feel that someone is not respecting you?  What should you do if someone tells you to stop?  What should you do if you see someone else who is not being respected by another student?
