School Day by the Brandywine Our school has a unique past, which dates back to the early 1900's. Although the school has gone through many changes over time, it remains a place of academic excellence and pride. To learn more about the rich history of our school, please visit the article below, which was written by Mary W. McMullan who taught at Chadds Ford Elementary School from 1929 - 1971.


Chadds Ford Art Show and Sale

Chadds Ford Elementary School has strong ties with our local art community.  Each year, the Chadds Ford PTO hosts the Chadds Ford Art Show and Sale.  Local artists from around the region display and sell original and printed pieces of art.  Proceeds from this event benefit our students and school projects.  

May Fair

The May Fair was once known as May Day.  It was first held on Saturday, May 21, 1949 and included events such as square dancing, crowning of the May Queen, and the May Pole Dance.  The May Fair still remains today and holds many of these activities.  Our annual May Fair is not only a day of fun for students, but also a time for our entire school to reflect on our rich history, which we hold so dear.
