Dear Churchville-Chili Families and Community Members,

Dear community,

It’s hard to believe that we are nearly half-way through the school year and the holidays are already upon us. I hope you are able to come out and enjoy the talents of our students at one of the many concert performances scheduled over the next several weeks.

This is a busy time of year for everyone and the district is no exception. Phase III of the Capital Improvement Project has brought about many wonderful changes at both Churchville and Chestnut Ridge Elementary Schools. CES has seen improvements inside and out with a new main office and secure entrance, health office, and restrooms, as well as landscaping and ADA accessibility on the playground. Chestnut Ridge has a brand new library and bus loop. In the spring renovations will begin on the CRS main office and secure entrance, health office, and gym along with the replacement of windows.

We are finalizing the timeline for Phase IV construction work at the Middle School and Fairbanks Road School. At this time, we have a target date of late May to begin the replacement of the two bridges in the Middle School North building. We anticipate construction at Fairbanks to begin in the fall of 2015.

Discussions about a Phase V Capital project have begun as well. As a district we are looking for community members, parents, staff and student volunteers to participate in a Phase V Advisory Committee to discuss the following areas of focus:

·         Senior High School Pool Facility

·         Supplementing Existing Water Service from Buffalo Rd.

·         Synthetic Turf Field

The Phase V Capital Project Advisory Committee meetings are scheduled for Monday, January 12, and Monday, January 26, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Board of Education Meeting Room. If you are interested in participating and can attend both meetings, please complete the short online questionnaire at For a hard copy of the questionnaire please contact Amanda Puleo at 293-1800 extension 2300 or Questionnaires must be completed by December 31. Those selected to participate in the committee will be notified on January 5, 2015.

As I stated earlier it is a busy time of year, but I hope that you all have the opportunity to spend quality time with your family and friends this holiday season.  I look forward to working with many of you on the next phase of our district improvements.
