Happy Fall Y’all! Can you believe it’s been almost two months since the beginning of the school year? What a pleasure it is to see and hear happy children and teachers engaged in a variety of learning experiences…singing, storytelling, helper assignments, teacher directed learning centers, art and sensory exploration, just to name a few. As early childhood educators, it is very rewarding to provide an environment that allows children the freedom to discover and learn in a supportive and nurturing way.We appreciate that you have chosen us and thank you for your ongoing support and trust! When parents and teachers work as partners, the learning experience becomes richer and more meaningful to the child.
October is one of the busiest months of the school year and also kicks-off the holiday season here at Chesterbrook Academy. Our most popular school event is “Trunk or Treat”. Families and friends are welcome to join us for an evening of safe trick or treating, food, cotton candy, face painting, Kona Ice and a DJ for some Halloween dancing with the kids! Check out or school lobby display for details.
Please be sure to review monthly activities and events posted on this page as well as postings in our front lobby, vestibule, and classroom doors.
Throughout the year we host a variety of national fundraisers. These fundraisers were chosen to offer quality products and services to our families, while benefiting our school program. Although we appreciate your enthusiastic participation, please do not feel obligated.
Documenting your child’s growth and development is an ongoing process for Chesterbrook Academy teachers. A portfolio was created for each student the beginning of the school year. Teachers use these portfolios to collect assessments, observations, student work, pictures, etc…of your child’s work throughout the school year. To keep you connected, parent reports with detailed information will be sent home the last Friday of October.
PRE-K/VPK PARENTS: Teachers are in the process of completing VPK period 1 student assessments. Expect to receive your parent report by the end of the month. These quarterly reports will help you stay connected with your child’s progress. VPK assessments are designed to provide teachers with valid and reliable feedback regarding student progress in attaining VPK educational standards. Teachers use this information to help drive instructional decisions to meet each needs.
