Students who are dropped off at school in the morning were recently greeted by an interesting surprise-- a row of cones in the left lane, just past the teacher entrance that encourage drivers to merge into one lane.

Chatham High School Senior Indira Roy is accomplished. Very accomplished. In fact, that’s an understatement. She has already achieved far more in her short lifetime than the average person does over the course of their entire lifetime - being selected as one of 400 delegates to the 2016 Global Youth Institute (where she got to discuss her findings on hydroponics in India with international experts on agricultural and food issues), placing second in last year’s prestigious Princeton Energy Case Competition and, most recently, becoming a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist.

In April, Mrs. Gagliardi noticed a few pill bugs throughout her classroom, and within weeks most of the rooms in the A wing were infested.

Pill Bugs are actually considered tiny pests and not really insects at all. Rather, they are crustaceans, which have adapted to live completely on land and do not need water to survive. This makes it difficult to get rid of them.

resultsThe 2016 Presidential Election is one that will live in infamy. It consisted of a Washington politician pitted against the most politically inexperienced person to ever receive a major party nomination. By winning the Electoral College, Donald J. Trump, our new president-elect, proved that Americans are sick of the establishment.

A few weeks ago, the Chatham School District’s lockdown procedure changed from the traditional procedure to a fairly different one. After national studies were done, it was discovered that the lockdown procedure that we formerly utilized, one of more complacent style, was less effective in the event of an emergency, than one that was more offensive and aggressive.

How did you spend your November break? Twenty-one French students spent it traveling to the Canadian province of Quebec and its largest city, Montreal. The students, ranging from French 2 to French 4, were accompanied by Madame Caulfield, Mrs. McCabe, and Mrs. Chapman. A luxury bus took them to and from Canada, as well as to the various sites they visited.

As we progress further into the school year, it seems obvious that Chatham High School has without a doubt been caught with the technology bug.

Chatham School District is known for the quality of its academics. This, among other reasons, is due to the exceptional staff we hire. Ms. Roger is just one example of the many qualified staff hired this school year. Ms. Roger is a sophomore english teacher new to the Chatham staff this year. As students of hers, we interviewed her to learn more about the teachers CHS hires.

It was just like any other day. Students were learning and teachers were teaching, that is until the intercom beeped during second period.

Hey, you… Have you been to room B157? Have you done your casual stroll by Mrs. McCabe’s room?

This school year, many issues have arose concerning the parking and overall buildup of traffic in the high school parking lot. For years, the matter of how to dissipate traffic near the high school has been up for discussion, but this year in particular it has come to many people's attention that it is a necessity for this problem to be fixed. With the combination of one of the biggest senior classes to go through Chatham and the largest freshman class to ever enter the high school, the traffic buildup is at an all time high.

It’s midnight and the parents’ of the children you are babysitting for have not gotten home yet. You start to panic, wondering whether you will be able to make it home without being noticed by a police officer.

When summer began winding down and school was right around the corner, the CHS students looked at their finalized schedules. Many probably noticed teachers’ names that they had not heard before. This is because six new teachers joined the CHS faculty this year! So, The Chronicle decided to interview three of them to help students and staff get to know them better.

This year on Friday, March 4th, the battle between the seniors and faculty will continue in the annual volleyball game that gets everyone excited. For three years teachers have tried to show up the students, and students have tried to get in hits at teachers they’ve requested to play. Although, most teachers will hold it over their students heads if they win and students desperately seek the bragging rights against the faculty, no matter the outcome it is fun for all.

Stephen Bondurich is someone who has certainly made an impact at CHS. He is known by his peers for his energetic and genuine personality, and has taken on numerous roles over his 4 years. He’s been an elected student representative as vice president, a contributor to the theatre department, and most recently...Chatham’s new breakthrough star athlete. “Bondo” as most call him in the hallways, has been shattering records for CHS’s indoor track team all winter and looks to continue his success in the spring. Let’s see what he has to say!

Dr. Jones is a math and computer science teacher at CHS, yet there’s more to him than just his job.  Recently, he’s been giving in-class presentations about the applications of trigonometry in music, complete with an electric guitar and microphone.  Obviously, he’s no ordinary teacher!  The Chronicle was interested to learn more, and got this exclusive interview revealing the man behind the math.

Spanish and French FlagsFrom a young age, we have always been encouraged to become bilingual. Whether it is through the highly educational programs known as Muzzy and Dora the Explorer, or a desire to travel the world and not seem like stereotypical culturally bland Americans, the influence has always surrounded us. When we enter the high school, this is no different. For several years, Chatham High School has provided students with a plethora of clubs and courses to satisfy its students hunger to learn a new language and submerge themselves in a foreign culture.
