CHATHAM, NJ - Progress is being made on various capital improvement projects for the School District of the Chathams, it was reported on Monday night at the reorganization meeting of the BOE.

Peter Daquila, the board administrator/secretary, gave a brief update on the renovation of the high school auditorium, the addition of STEM classes to the Chatham Middle School, the construction of the new central office behind the high school, and the addition of four new classrooms at Milton Avenue School.

"Due to the last few weeks of extreme cold weather, not too much has happened on the outside projects," Daquila said. "The contractor at Milton was able to make his connection to the sanitary sewer line. With the warm weather this week, each of the contractors should be able to resume their outside work.

"The auditorium contractor is still humming and making steady progress with most of his demolition all done, now he's starting to lay the groundwork to start some construction and reassemble."

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

Police Presence is the Best Short-Term Solution

February 20, 2018

To the Editor,

There is only one short-term solution that can help protect our children right now. There needs to be a police officer in every school, every day from now on and in perpetuity.  

In a perfect world, it would be nice to imagine that there were no private homes that housed military level assault weapons, but that is not short-term reality.  It would also be ...
