CHATHAM, NJ -  Parents took photos and videos under sunny skies on Thursday morning, Sept. 4, as more than 4,000 students headed back to the brick buildings for the first day of the school year.

There are some 700 students at Lafayette School - made up of fourth- and fifth graders - and they all recited the Pledge of Allegiance outside before heading into the building. As is the tradition, fifth-grade students lined the halls and clapped in the new fourth grade students.

Lafayette Principal Cheryl Russo welcomes students on the first day of school in video below

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?
