From the Principal’s Office:
This month we will be strengthening our commitment to excellence by hosting our Annual Teacher In-Service on Friday, November 11th. Chesterbrook Academy Preschool is closed for Veteran’s Day; but we will be meeting with our district of thirteen preschools to attend breakouts and workshops covering early childhood topics. Teacher In-Service allows our teachers to learn from leaders in early childhood while brainstorming and sharing best practices from the field. We can’t wait to share all that we have learned with our families in order to improve the services and programs we provide you.
This month we will also be celebrating all that we are thankful for with our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner on Friday, November 18th (See School Spotlight for Info). We will also be sending home our first Parent Reports on Wednesday, November 23rd. Parent reports are a glimpse of your child’s development along with giving you information on the goals and skills your child will be working towards in the upcoming period. Kindergarten readiness conferences will occur in December for our Prek, Prek2B, Prek2A students heading off to kindergarten in the fall of 2017. Private conferences are available upon request in each program too.

Five Little Turkeys
Five little turkeys by the front door,
One waddled off, then there were four.
Four little turkeys out under the tree,
One waddled off, then there were three.
Three little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, then there were two.
Two little turkeys in the noonday sun,
One waddled off, then there was one.
One little turkey-better run away!
Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day!
Thank you for sharing your family with us this fall! We are so very thankful to be part of your child’s first learning experience!

Please take a moment to review how traffic should flow in our parking lot: Traffic is to enter the parking lot on the Chesterbrook Academy Elementary School side and then follow all the way around the lot and park on the preschool side. Traffic should exit the parking lot on our preschool side. Please make sure to slow down near the cross walk so that you are able to watch for pedestrians crossing from one building to the next and to avoid any accidents or injuries. Heavy traffic times are from 8:30am to 8:45am and 3:35pm to 3:55pm; to avoid these heavy traffic times please arrive to the campus either before or after these arrival and dismissal times.
