Thank you to our fantastic High School student and parent volunteers who assisted with snacks at recent Student Council events—the Talent Show and Movie Night. Volunteer help is essential to the success of these events. We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you!

From the PTO Presidents

A Message from Principal McAllister

"The Chenery PTO represents the idea of 'possibility' for us. True, we have a foundation budget from the town of Belmont that covers our day-to-day expenses. However, when a teacher comes forward with a pitch that begins, 'I have this idea I've been thinking of...' we are not always able to accommodate it within that foundation budget. It is usually at that point where we say, 'I wonder if the PTO might be able to help out?' We want teachers to think innovatively in order to do things differently and better, but that kind of thinking is not always easily accommodated within a traditional school budget. The Chenery PTO helps encourage teachers to consider new possibilities— new field trips, new guest speakers, new initiatives, new learning materials. We are so thankful for the Chenery PTO for their generosity towards us, and for their advocacy on behalf of us! It is a great partnership on behalf of children."
