October News

A Message from the Principal:

Welcome to October! Fall has arrived, along with many fun activities this month. Please take a look at our October newsletter here to learn more.


Parent Participation Morning:

This month we are hosting a morning for our families to join your student in their classroom. During your class’ scheduled time, your child will show you what they have been working on in the classroom so far, observe and participate in a classroom activity, and have the opportunity to ask your child’s teacher questions and learn about our curriculum throughout the rest of the year.

Infants & Toddlers: Monday, October 12th from 9:30am-10:30am

Beginners & Intermediates: Tuesday, October 13th from 9:30am-10:30am

Pre-K & Pre-K 2: Thursday, October 15th from 9:30am-10:30pm


Chesterbrook Sharing Library:

We are going to be launching our own “take a book, return a book” free book exchange here at our school during the month of October. We will be accepting any book donations (geared toward ages Infant-Pre-K) throughout the month and we hope to have it up and running strong by the beginning of November. Once it is, our families will be able to continually have access to different books and this will continue to promote literacy at home as well as school.
