As our school year comes to an end we are excited to announce one of the largest improvements is coming to Chesterbrook Academy at Mallard Creek. The new program will allow us to include our Parents in what is occurring in our school daily. It will allow us to send important reminders to our families and pictures of the children doing fun learning activities. Every family will need to add the app LINKS 2 HOME through the app store or google play. This will allow you to receive the communication being sent by the teachers of your child. Our teachers will be using ipads to deliver the info to you and monitor attendance in their classrooms. In addition they can store data for portfolio records and to share with you memories that are being created every day.
Summer camp will be enhanced with the new tadpole program being used in the school. The calendar is ready and will be given out to each camper who has paid summer camp activity fees. If you have not paid the fee please remember it is due by June 1st. The helps covers the expenses related to the additional activities that families want for the child in the summer. In house field trips, additional cooking/science projects, special snacks or meals, a variety of arts and crafts, and a camp tshirt with the summer logo.

REMINDER: If your child leaves and you wish to return for the fall be mindful that you must have the registration fee paid before you leave. In addition you will be placed on a waiting list for your return date, as your child’s space you are leaving will be filled immediately.
