|On Monday, Feb. 2, 2015 Chandler School marked the opening of a brand new and unique playing structure.
Parents, students, faculty and staff and volunteers gathered for the ribbon cutting of the one-of-a-kind climbing sphere in the Lower School. Students with birthdays this week were the first to conquer the sphere.
Thank you so much to the Chandler Family Associates for its role in the raising the funds during the 2013-14 school year to pay for this amazing new playing option.

|School Groups Focus on Helping Union Station Feed the Hungry|
One of the missions behind Chandler's School Groups is to unify the entire student body, and this year's focus on service learning has played a key role. The resulting character and leadership development was evident when our groups met in the gym Wednesday, Dec. 10. From a seventh grader reading aloud her This I Believe essay about feeding the hungry, to discussing how some fifth graders learned about Union Station's 40-year history helping the needy, to promoting the canned food drive launched by some of our third graders, you could feel the convergence of good will and effort to make a difference in the community.
