The Chatfield Public School Board convened for its monthly meeting May 10, 2011. In attendance were all members except for Thomas Sturgis. Principals Randy Paulson and Craig Ihrke were also not in attendance. Superintendent Edward Harris was present.

The meeting started with district patron time where Craig Manahan addressed the board on possibly constructing a new press box at the football field that is similar to the one that is at the baseball field. The press box would be of great use to Chatfield Community Television. Also, Barbara Upton presented some information to the board about the school's geographical location.

The meeting continued with a few points of interest shared by Superintendent Harris. He first recognized Louis and Mary Geiger for their donation to the school district. Their donation is for the purpose "to assist needy students of talent and good character in achieving a college education." He then gave a brief summary of the workshop schedule for August 2011 and how the summer maintenance schedule was shaping up. A larger topic of discussion was the preview presentation of the school's new Facebook page. The school plans to launch its Facebook district page on May 20, 2011. The page will be managed by an administration team which consists of school employees. The page will be composed of sub-pages that include areas such as community education, a page for parents, and one for athletics.

The board continued on with its meeting agenda by entertaining motions to approve budgets for the 2011-2012 school year. School guidance counselor, Susan Fox, was also recognized for her services after 11 years at the Chatfield School District as she is now retiring.

The board concluded its meeting by highlighting some important dates for the end of the school year. There is no school on May 30 due to Memorial Day. The last student day for the district is June 2. Finally, Chatfield High School's graduation ceremony is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on June 5, 2011.
