On Saturday, January 19, thirteen CHS physics students met with Mr. Bandel at 7:00 a.m. in the front parking lot to make the annual trek to Monmouth Regional HS for the state Physics Olympics competition. The day immediately began with a bad sign - the school was locked and several of the projects were inside. Fortunately, the students were not superstitious and the problem was quickly solved with a call to Mrs. Gironda. The projects were retrieved and the group continued on its way.

There was much speculation about the cause of that disappearance, Challenge Day, but from the opinions of those who participated in the bonding activity, it seems to have been an overwhelmingly positive experience. Students started the day with some fun icebreakers to get everyone comfortable with one another; they then listened to the two Challenge Day leaders discuss who they “really were”.

Cancer is the villain of every crime story. It lurks around, seemingly benign, among all the healthy body cells, unsuspected until a biopsy or blood test reveals its true nature. But for every nemesis, there must be a hero as well; and on Monday, November 21st, students at Chatham High School showed that while cancer may attack inside the body, it does not have to hurt a patient's outside life as well.
