Your CNA Board greatly appreciates your support and looks forward to seeing you on March 12th!

Hi neighbors,
You probably know about the PM Pool that will hopefully (pending rezoning on March 16th) be a great addition to our area.
The pool will be on the property of The VanLandingham Estate.
The co-owner emailed me earlier this week to let me know that they have now opened up membership to Chantilly and asked me to help get the word out. They initially had just opened up membership to PM as they really want membership that can walk or bike there, but Chantilly was next on the list!
If you are interested then check out the site and pay your deposit for a spot.
Oh, and sign the petition to help get it rezoned.
Feel free to forward.
Thanks! Have a great weekend.

We got Oakhurst!

The school board voted unanimously tonight to include Chantilly in the home school boundary for Oakhurst STEAM Elementary! Read more here:

Charlotte Observer Article

CMS Recommendations that were passed (page 14)

More information to come.

Hi Neighbors,

We thought it might be helpful for those of you entering the CMS lottery for the first time this year to read through this document as you begin the process. This was created by a parent two years ago after being frustrated by the whole lottery experience. The calculation is not meant to be fully accurate: it just gives you an idea about how the lottery process works. Every year the process works a little differently and the school system does not share that data.

Hope this helps!

The Chantilly Education Committee


Hi Neighbors – Quick reminder the next CNA meeting is this Thursday 7:15 at Chantilly Hall on Shenandoah. Agenda items include:

– An outside group will have a road race January 17 – the Board is interested in volunteers for a committee to explore our own Chantilly race next year
– Information about CMS Magnet lottery program
– Election for 2015 Board President

Look for the fall newsletters in your mailbox or front porch… All neighbors welcome – see you there!

Rick Winiker
VP (elect)
