Happy New Year!!! We here at Chesterbrook Academy are so excited for what 2020 has in store. As we reflect back on the previous year and look at all the learning fun, we look forward with zeal to the amazing learning experiences 2020 will bring us.
Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. We partnered with Pathways PA to adopt two families for the holiday season. Thanks to your help, we collected over 50 presents of needs and wishes for both families, making their Christmas extra special. Your generosity is truly appreciated.
As the cold weather comes in, teachers will take the opportunity to teach students about winter and winter weather. Classes will spend time reading books such as Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You Hear? by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle and Five Little Penguins Slipping on Ice by Steve Metzger. Students will get to participate in science experiments with ice and snow. As students watch water freeze and ice melt, they will learn about the different states of matter. Even our littlest friends will get to explore sensory bins of snow, experiencing the cold with their sense of touch.
January starts a new season of extra-curricular activities. The winter session of Soccer Shots starts Tuesday January 14th. Every Tuesday for 8 weeks the Soccer Shots coach will come teach students ages 2-5 various soccer skills and play fun soccer games. The Music Experience with Mr. Dave continues Wednesday afternoons with lots of musical fun! Students as young as toddlers love joining Mr. Dave as he introduces them to fun songs and all kinds of musical instruments. Lil’ Sports will also continue in January on Friday mornings. Sign-ups for The Music Experience and Lil’ Sports are ongoing. If you are interested in signing your child up for some extra-curricular fun, please see Erin or Catie.
