Philosophy

The goal of the athletic program is to field competitive teams exhibiting discipline, the desire to excel, and pride in themselves and school. Our program is intended to improve student physical skills and to promote qualities of personality, character, and leadership. We wish to encourage a healthy life-style by providing daily opportunities for physical skill enhancement, a competitive team or individual play, and organized opportunities for peer interaction in a cooperative spirit.

Philosophy

Being a part of our school community involves more than just academics. It is also important to pursue interests outside of class and explore activities that will provide for a well-rounded high school experience. Clubs and Activities allow for students to take advantage of all of the opportunities that exist at CHS.

Marching Band / Band Front
 
Marching Band is an artistic school support group. The group performs at band competitions, football games, pep rallies, and parades. It is also an outstanding social activity. All Instrumentalists are required to be enrolled in a performance class and are expected to participate in spring clinics and attend Band Camp to gain proficiency in the necessary skills. Marching Band and Band Front are open to all Chatham High School students. It should also be noted that student roadies are always needed to assist the members in their performances. See Mr. Conti for additional information.

Pops Orchestra is open to members of Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra. This performing group plays selections of light classical, popular and movie music for school functions (such as Back to School Night or the Art Show) and community events throughout the school year. Pops Orchestra does not have a conductor – students who participate will find an opportunity to take on leadership roles to direct the Orchestra and to work together to plan program selections appropriate for each event or performance. For more information, please see Ms. Graser
