Thank You for Supporting the PTO!

Thank you to all families who contributed to the Chenery PTO’s Annual Appeal this year. We exceeded our fundraising expectations and, because of your generosity, we will purchase two Chromebook Carts for Chenery. We are excited to announce that the Belmont Public Schools Technology Department has agreed to match this donation with two additional Carts--for a total for four. 

Thank you for supporting our students with this fantastic new equipment!
