Each Monday we welcome you back to the work week with a look at what to expect in the Chathams. From content you'll find on Patch as the week goes on to community activities, here's what you need to know this week:
1) You need to know about teacher reforms: With changes to teacher evaluations and tenure on the way, we'll take a look at where the School District of the Chathams is now.
2) You need to know about paddle tennis: The courts at Colony Pool & Tennis Club were recently renovated.
3) You need to know about your kid's English class: Three English teachers at Chatham Middle School take a new approach to reading for fun.
4) You need to know about ... Hitchcock? Sort of. The Chatham Community Players present "The 39 Steps" starting Friday. Alfred Hitchcock directed the movie, but Patrick Barlow adapted the novel for the stage.
5) You need to know about youth sports: A look at what new club models will mean for you and your kids.
