The language clubs often take multiple field trips throughout the year. Earlier in the year, the French Club went on a trip to Cafe Monet to experience a traditional French lunch. Recently, they went into New York to see the musical, An American in Paris on Broadway. Before the show, students were able to go shopping in Columbus Square and stop to have lunch. After the amazing show, the students were able to meet Brandon Uranowitz. He plays Adam Hochberg, who is friends with the main character, Jerry Mulligan. Everyone took the train in and out of the city, which added to the fun and experience of the trip.

This school year many CHS students have reached out to start their own clubs for activities that interest them and peers of all ages around the school. Any student can start a club, but it comes down to a few factors to get approved: What the club is and how it benefits students in the school, what the plan and overall goal is of the club and whether or not you have a faculty advisor of the club. Recently added to CHS’s long list of clubs is Guitar Club.

I was waiting at cougar field on a cold Sunday morning not sure of what to expect. I had never been in any organization or club like Sports Buddies before. Chatham Sports Buddies is a club at our School where we help autistic kids play sports and train to eventually participate in a run at the end of the school year. I also had never dealt with an autistic child before… Could I really help or even make a difference?

To prepare for this experience, the the Model Congress club met every single week between September and November.  Once selected into the club, students picked a specific committee that they were interested in and drafted a related bill.  They then spent hardworking hours critiquing and editing all of the bills, their own and others, all in the hopes that they pass in committee once they arrive in Washington, D.C. Some of the bill topics consisted of eliminating the penny, raising the minimum wage, changing U.S. relations with China, Cuba, and Palestine, investing in Bio Fuel research, and many more domestic and foreign problems.

You may have heard a ball or two bouncing during lunch a few weeks ago. This was the sound of the ping pong balls during the Ping Pong Tournament. This tournament had over 60 participants and was run by the Paskalides brothers. It took place in the A/B gym and was a fun time for all who participated. The Pakalides brothers came up with the idea and acted upon it.
