September News

Dear Chesterbrook Families:


Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year! We are looking forward to a great year ahead filled with learning and laughter. September is always a busy month for families both new and old. Everyone is adjusting to new routines and schedules, and juggling many other family activities as well, and as a result, we will be adjusting our staffing to accomodate the needs of the school during the morning and afternoon drop-offs and pick-ups. It may take a few weeks for everyone to get into a routine and we appreciate your understanding as we make adjustments to best meet those needs.


Please be sure to visit our website periodically to become familiar with some of the resources and information available to you. You can find forms that you may need to update information, our monthly menu and newsletter, school closing/delay information, as well as a calendar of important dates and events at our school. There are several important dates in the month of September worth noting: Grandparents Day Celebration on Thursday, September 10th at 3pm,  our Back to School Night will take place on Thursday, September 17th from 6-7pm, and Picture Days on 9/22 and 9/23. We also send out e-notifications via email. Please be sure we have your current email address in our system to receive important communications and reminders.


Our extracurricular activities will begin the week of September 7th and will include Jr. Gym Gymnastics & Sports Fundamentals on Wednesday afternoons, and Soccer Shots, tentatively scheduled for Thursday afternoons (beginning later in the month). Forms are available at the front desk for those interested in signing their children up for these classes. Many of our students participate and enjoy in these enrichment activities.


In addition, our curriculum enrichment specials will also begin the week of September 7th, beginning with Spanish with Senor Alberto on Mondays (PreK and above), Computer Tots on Tuesdays (Intermediates and above), and Music Instruction with Mr. Hoffman on Fridays (PreK and above). Note: Due to the Labor Day Holiday on Monday, September 7th, Spanish class will begin on Monday, September 14th.


With the start of a new school year, it can be challenging to remember all of the things, we as parents need to do. Here are a few important reminders to be aware of:

  • Tuition is due on Friday for the upcoming week. Let us help make life a little easier, and save yourself from writing checks by signing up for the Automatic Payment program. We have forms available at the front desk for those interested.
  • Please sign your child in and out each day at the front desk. If you are not sure what to do or where to look, please do not hesitate to ask.
  • Please do not hold the door open for individuals you do not know or recognize. Anyone who is supposed to be here will understand and thank you for it!
  • Check your child’s mailbox/folder at the end of each day for imporant notes and information coming home.
  • Our two inservice days of the year are on Election Day (11/3/15 – Tuesday!) and President’s Day (2/15/16). Our school will be closed on these dates for our staff to attend required training.
  • Tune into 6ABC.com or Channel 6 News for information on school closings and delays. Please refer to the For Parent and Teachers below as well for further details.
  • All children are required to have an updated and current physical on file. Children up to the age of 2 years are required to have an updated Health Assessment Form completed at each well visit. Children 2 years of age and older are required annually. Forms are available at the front desk and on our school website under Forms and Policies.
  • Enrollment paperwork will be required to be updated periodically to remain in compliance with our state regulations and licensing. Be aware of information coming home of forms that need to be updated. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation to make sure that we meet and exceed the requirements.


Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to helping your child grow and learn with us! Best wishes for a happy and educational year ahead!


In addition to all the efforts we are making to ensure a year of tremendous growth for the children, we are striving to make life easier for parents! We encourage you to check out our school website for updates. On this site you will find our school calendar, menus, newsletter and more.
