Happy May Chesterbrook Academy families! Spring is in full bloom and our students are blossoming. The April showers have brought us May flowers as well as tons of science and math experiences. Students are learning all about the different parts of a flower. Seeds planted in April are now sprouting in to various flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs. Our student gardeners are learning about all the things plants need to survive. Younger students are classifying flowers by types and sorting by color. We are even using our sense of smell to experience the different smells of different types of flowers and plants.
As Mother’s Day quickly approaches we are in the process of planning our Ma’ Spa. On Friday May 10th from 4:00pm-5:30pm, come be pampered by your child. Stations will be set up in each room for hand massages, manicures, pedicures and back massages, all performed by your child.
The week of May 13th, students will be participating in a Kids Helping Kids fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Students at Chesterbrook Academy in Chadds Ford will join the fight against childhood cancer as they raise money so families won’t have to pay a penny for their child’s treatments. As Chesterbrook students learn all about bike safety, they will also learn the importance of helping those in need. On Friday, May 17th, students will put their bike safety skills to the test as they participate in a Trike-a-thon. Students will truly embrace the St. Jude’s motto “Learning to Ride. Learning to Give.”
