From the Office of the Principal
We hope everyone had a great January! It was quite the busy month. Chesterbrook Academy was closed on Wednesday, January 1 in observance of New Years Day. The new Soccer Shots winter season started on Wednesday, January 15, but it’s not too late to sign your child up! We haven’t had much luck with Soccer Shots thus far due to the cold weather, so there’s still plenty of classes left. Other enrichment programs that we offer continued throughout the month of January as well, including Shining Stars Drama Theatre program on Tuesday mornings, and our Go for Fit Kids Program on Thursday mornings for 2.5 year olds and up. On Saturday, January 25, will held an Open House from 10 am to 1 pm for prospective parents, and had a great turnout. 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.
We look forward to February as well. Groundhog Day is Sunday, February 2, and the children will be learning all about the how the groundhog peeks out from his hole to determine if winter will continue. If the groundhog sees his shadow, that means there will be 6 more weeks of winter! (Spolier alert: it’ll be an early spring!) Friday, February 14 marks Valentine’s Day, and we will have many class parties during that week. Please remember that on Monday, February 17 (President’s Day), Chesterbrook Academy will be closed for our bi-annual Professional Development Day. Finally, Links to Learning folders go home on Friday, February 28.
As always, we will always be here to help you in any way possible if you have any questions or concerns.
William Gordon, Principal
