From the Office of the Principal
Happy 2020! What a year 2019 was! The year has flown by, and we had a busy December to cap it all off. We want to thank everyone who donated to our Make-A-Wish event–our families raised $1,300 to grant the wish of a child during the holidays! Our entire Chesterbrook Academy district raised over $7,000! We are so proud of the Chesterbrook Academy community of families that made this possible! We had our Holiday Break on Wednesday, December 25, and we hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their families!
January is always a busy time of year, as we are all getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. Chesterbrook Academy is closed on Wednesday, January 1 for New Year’s Day. The new Soccer Shots winter season will be starting soon on Wednesday, January 15, so if you are interested in signing up your child, there are enrollment forms in the lobby. We will have a Soccer Shots Demo Day for every child on Wednesday January 8. Other enrichment programs offered include Shining Stars Drama Theatre program on Tuesday mornings and our Go for Fit Kids Program is on Thursday mornings as well for 2.5 year olds and up.
Don’t forget that Friday, January 24 is National Compliment Day, and we will be celebrating by wearing your spirit wear on January 24! All students, parents and staff are welcome to wear school spirit wear on Friday, January 24 and give an extra compliment to brighten someone’s day or to give credit for a job well done. In order to have your school spirit wear in time for Compliment Day place your order TODAY at https://providencerdcb618.qbstores.com/
On Saturday, January 25, Chesterbrook Academy will be holding an Open House from 10 am to 1 pm for all prospective parents. Please keep in mind that through our Parent Referral Program, you can receive one FREE week of tuition if you refer someone to Chesterbrook Academy on Providence Road West, so please let any friends looking for a quality preschool program to stop by on Saturday, January 25. Finally, Links to Learning folders go home on Friday, January 31.
As always, we will always be here to help you in any way possible if you have any questions or concerns.

Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please check your child’s cubby to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warm enough to play outside for part of the day. If the weather is brisk we still go outside and want everyone to be able to participate!
Chesterbrook Academy is on Facebook!
We wanted to remind everyone that the Chesterbrook Academy group of schools is on Facebook. We invite you to “like” our page at www.facebook.com/ChesterbrookAcademy where we’ll be providing our fans with regular educational tips for children from preschool to 8th grade and the opportunity to network with fellow parents. We would love to have your participation and encourage you to continue to check our school website for more local updates specific to our own school.
We look forward to having you as part of our Facebook community!

Chesterbrook Academy Parent Referral Program
If there’s one thing parents love to do, it’s talk about their children’s successes. When friends ask you about your child’s experiences at Chesterbrook Academy, what type of success stories do you share? Do you mention the personal and educational discoveries your child is making thanks to our advanced curriculum? Do you talk about the new levels of self and social confidence your child has gained thanks to our encouraging atmosphere? Whatever glowing reports you deliver about how your child is growing with his or her education, we couldn’t be more appreciative. In fact, we’d like to show you just how thankful we are for your endorsements. Now when you tell other parents about our school, you can become a Chesterbrook Academy Ambassador.
For every new child you refer who enrolls at our school for three months, you’ll receive one FREE week of tuition for your child.
It’s our way of saying thanks for doing what comes naturally – singing the praises of your child and sharing your experiences with the Chesterbrook Academy difference. If you have any questions about how you can become a Chesterbrook Academy Ambassador, please contact an administrator.
