It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, it’s not the holidays just yet – it’s back-to-school time! I am so very excited about all that’s to come in the 2015-2016 school year, but even more than that, I’m thrilled to share all of these wonderful events, activities, and moments with you and your children.
In the coming year, I look forward to uniting as a Chesterbrook Academy community – families, teachers, and administrators – to maintain our strong educational environment and to provide your children with the best early childhood experience possible. I encourage you all to take advantage of our many communication tools so that you, as parents, stay connected to what’s happening in your child’s classroom and all throughout the school.
I can’t wait to see where this school year will take us, and to watch how much our students will learn and grow from now until next summer. Together, we will make this the best school year at Chesterbrook Academy of Philadelphia yet!
