Before a publicly owned airfield was established in Henrico County, local aviation enthusiasts used a
landing strip at the end of present-day Chamberlayne Avenue. The airfield was known as Charles Field. This
open-pasture field gave way to residential development known as Chamberlayne Farms. The school, located in the Fairfield District, was named for this community.

About Virginia PTA
The Virginia Congress of Parents and Teachers, better known as the Virginia PTA is a volunteer child advocacy association working for ALL children and youth in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The Virginia PTA is the strongest group of volunteers in the state working exclusively on behalf of children and youth. Chartered by the National PTA in 1921, the primary goal of the Virginia PTA is to strengthen our family units, our schools and our communities through parent/family involvement. PTA recognizes parents as the first educators in the home and works to promote parents as partners in the school.
The Virginia PTA is geographically divided into twenty-one districts in six regions in over 1095 local units with an annual membership well over 335,355. Managed by an all volunteer Board of Managers elected by the membership, the VA PTA/PTSA is one of the largest Congresses of the 54 Congresses in the National PTA.
As one of fifty-four Congresses, the Virginia PTA is an integral part of the National PTA, serving as the liaison between the local unit and the National PTA, helping each to function effectively and to support and sustain the other.
