“All my experiences with the play and meeting such great people”

“The Cafeteria cookies”

“Coming full circle from freshman year when our hockey team played at the Prudential Center and won the State Championships to now when the football team is able to play at Kean Stadium to compete for the State Championship. It's so great that we were able to be apart of two games at such amazing venues.”

“Making s’mores in Chemistry Class’

“Challenge Day”

“A memory from my time at Chatham would be one time when I failed a test. I knew I had done badly, and I felt sorry for myself. However, as I sat there with my marked up test paper in my hands, I looked up and came to realize how lucky I was. I go to a school with the best teachers in the state, sitting among the brightest minds in the desks around me. One test doesn’t matter in the span of a lifetime. What matters are the memories you make when surrounded by the people that make you happy.”

“Crawling into the school’s courtyard through the nurse’s window to meet up with my science class (after thinking I had successfully ditched it by going to the nurse)!”

“Having a French Exchange Student”

“Being apart of the Varsity Tennis Team”

“When Mr. Bandel scared Mrs. Scerbo with his clown costume”

“Freshman Year - in general it was really fun and overall just great”

“The last day of Physics”

“Cha Swim”

“Running on the Track Team and doing hurdles”

“Fencing Team”

“Performing with the Marching Band and not being afraid of the audience”

“Cougar Fest”

It is probably safe to say that any resident of Chatham today will be familiar with the electric trains of New Jersey Transit that speed commuters to and from the city every day. Many Borough residents may not be aware that Chatham was at one time served by another form of electric railway - a trolley line that arrived, thrived, and died before the first electric train on the Morris & Essex Lines even ran.
