November is a time of giving thanks, a time of family and friends, and a time of celebration! We are so excited to spend this time with our Chesterbrook Academy family!
Throughout the month of November, students will learn about the true meaning of family, friends and being thankful. Students will learn all about the harvest season and why it is important. They will examine fruits and vegetables up close and participate in activities such as science fruit and vegetable dissections, seed extracting and counting and planting seeds to one day reap our own bountiful harvest!
Sign-up sheets will be posted on classroom doors for Black Friday (November 29) and the week of Christmas (December 23-27). On these sign ups you will be able to indicate whether your child will be here on those days. Your participation in signing up is imperative so we can staff accordingly and allow our teachers time off to be with their families.
Lil’ Sports and Soccer Shots will continue throughout the month of November. Students are enjoying exercising their gross motor skills through these wonderful classes. The Music Experience also meets every Wednesday afternoon. Students love singing and dancing while learning new songs with Mr. Dave. It is never too late to join in the extracurricular fun! Please see Erin or Catie if you are interested in signing your child up for any of these classes. Registration forms are available at the parent information desk outside the Principal’s Office.
