A Note from Our Principal


Thank you all for your participation in our Kids Helping Kids initiative this summer! Our students raised more than $1,150.00 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston through a lemonade stand and art auction. Students staffed the stand and sold lemonade to their fellow students, families, staff and teachers. Students also auctioned off their artwork to raise additional funds.


On July 12, staff from Chesterbrook Academy Preschool delivered the donation check to representatives at Ronald McDonald House and cooked a spaghetti dinner for families staying at the facility. The donated funds will help the organization provide a “home-away-from-home” for children undergoing extensive medical treatment. Through this initiative, students learned the importance of helping children in need.


We are grateful for the opportunity to watch our students serve others these past few weeks and appreciate the role you all had in this.


We still have a few more weeks of summer, but our teachers are hard at work preparing our classrooms for the new school year. Many of our students will be transitioning into new classrooms this month, and classroom specific information will be sent home soon. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns in the interim.

Last year our children raised $1344.00! Let’s see if we can beat that number! Please be on the lookout for fundraiser forms in your child’s classroom on Thursday at the end of the day. We will have extra forms at the tadpoles if you have family or friends who would like to help our fundraising efforts.
