The Newspaper Club at Chatham High School has been writing articles for years on topics ranging from politics to student achievement. However, this year marks the end of this journey for seniors and club leaders, Brenna Towell and Lana DePasquale, who devoted hours of their time to manage staff, edit articles, plan meetings, and publish the monthly editions of the CHS
Chronicle, as they reach the next chapter of their lives.

Emma Haberman: This photo was taken in an abandoned greenhouse my friend and I came about when we were taking pictures. To anyone else, the greenhouse would’ve probably been considered a big eye sore, and trust me it definitely wasn’t pleasant being there, but it made for some really cool photos. The broken glass and trash created really complex lighting which I tried to capture in this photo to frame a subject.

From February 7-10, 25 students went on the 4 day, 3 night, Model UN Trip at Johns Hopkins University (JHUMUNC). Complete with about 21 total hours of conferences, midnight crises, day trips, and the delegate dance, the experience was far from ordinary. Students stayed at and attended conferences at the extensive Hilton Baltimore, a fast paced and professional environment. For many participants, the best part of the conference was meeting students from across the United States (some international) and creating lasting friendships.

Ever since I could read, I have been obsessed. When I was younger, I used to read several books in a week. During the school years I don’t find that much time anymore, but I still open a book whenever I find myself stressed and in need of a break. Over the summer I catch up, and sometimes read as much as thirty or forty large books.

The advanced teams of Chatham, consisting of several experienced members, also impressed the judges with their unique designs. Team A Advanced received 6th place out of a total of 25 teams.

Salutations and exclamations for the Green Team’s sortation stations! In a joint effort to reduce waste during lunch in the CHS cafeteria, the Green Team and Environmental Club have now implemented a way for students to sort their leftovers and trash easily and efficiently. Old garbage cans have been replaced with brand new sorting stations with three separate sections: one for trash, one for recyclables, and one for compost. Unfortunately there are a select few who have taken it upon themselves to misuse the school’s newest asset and sabotage the effort to rid the school of unnecessary garbage.

As we say goodbye to the midterm elections, I feel it is important to look smaller than the national stage. Smaller than even the state stage. I am talking, of course, about Chatham High School’s own Young Conservatives and Young Progressives Clubs. While these clubs are similar to others in terms of encouraging discussion and furthering understanding, they stand out as the only two clubs pitted directly against one other. With our nation so divided, I was interested in finding common ground between these two polarizing clubs and the perspective of our nation’s youth on the world of politics.

Whether you walk home from school, are driven home, or play an after-school sport, you have probably noticed something different this year. There has been a group of teachers that run after school together: the Staff Striders.

During the weekend of November 17, a group of twenty five students visited Washington D.C. to participate in Princeton Model Congress.

Each congressperson was tasked with writing a bill that applied to their committee and presenting it before the committee.

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?

Not only was this trip set up for a fun time, but it was also intended to inform the members of the actual legitimacy of the game. The Lily Yip center is only one of twenty-four table tennis center in the world. It is run by Lily Yip herself, a two time U.S. Olympic Member and now the U.S. Jr. Girls National coach and her husband Barry Dattel, a U.S. men's national champion and now the U.S. Jr. Boys National coach.

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.
