Pittsboro Elementary Named Signature School for The Piedmont Education Consortium
Pittsboro Elementary Signature School photoPittsboro Elementary School principal, Chris Poston, is having a great year so far! Notified in October that he was Principal of the Year for Chatham County Schools, Poston accepted another honor on behalf of the school at the Piedmont Triad Education Consortium meeting on Friday morning, December 12. During the annual Signature Schools Award breakfast, Pittsboro Elementary was honored for significant improvement and given the designation of Signature School for the Piedmont Triad.

According to the nomination, Pittsboro Elementary has continued to implement systematic structures across the school that continues to yield positive results. The school has committed to establishing clear non-negotiables for instruction across the school that includes tight lesson planning and data driven meeting structures and PLC structures. The school has provided quality professional development in the area of literacy and has focused on providing a structured literacy block.

Lunch Accounts--How to Pay Online
  Prepay online:  
 
MySchoolMoney offers great convenience and the following benefits:
  • You get quick and easy access to your student's meal account 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • The ability to pay for multiple students' accounts with one single payment.
  • The ability to see 90 calendar days of purchases and payments.
  • Automated notification, via e-mail, when your student's account balance falls below an amount you have set.

A one-time registration fee of $10.00 is charged to set up your account. One registration fee covers all the students in your family who attend school in Chatham County. Each transaction will have a processing fee of $1.95 to handle the associated banking fees for credit card transactions, and a maximum payment of $100.00. One on-line payment can be split among all students attached to your account with no additional cost. 

You will need your child's Student ID number, not the cafeteria serving number, to set up a MySchoolMoney account. You can find the Student ID number on report cards/records or contact your child's school. 

The MySchoolMoney.com website will guide you through the easy steps of registration!
