From the Principal’s Office
Happy New Year! I would like to personally thank each one of you on behalf of myself and the entire Chesterbrook Team for every well wish, wonderful note, card, food, gifts, etc. You always let us know how much you appreciate us and we are truly thankful for that.
The Holidays are always such a great time to reflect on the highs and the lows of the year. We always have achievements that we are proud of. One of the achievements that we are most proud of in 2020, was Families Helping Families. We helped a lot of families this holiday season that were in need this year and we want to thank you for partnering with us on that as we helped our children to evolve into good citizens. Our job as educators and parents is to partner together to help our children to grow academically, socially and emotionally. We love giving back to the community. I was overjoyed with all of the gifts that were pouring in for Families Helping Families.
Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please send in an extra set of weather appropriate clothes for your child. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warmly enough to play outside for part of the day. We want everyone to be able to participate!
Links 2 Home
If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school.
Online Parent Communication
In addition to our newsletter the ‘For Parents’ section of our website also includes links to our menu, monthly calendar and school year calendar. We update these items frequently to ensure you’re always in the know. Though we send information through Links 2 Home, our calendar can be printed or even downloaded directly to your device. Our menu and school year calendar can be printed or saved for easy reference as well.
Updating your Information in Alma
Do you have a different email address or phone number? Need to add or remove an emergency contact? You can do this at any time in Alma. If you need help logging in or accessing the system please let us know.
Love Our School? Review Us!
In today’s connected world, many families turn to online reviews to learn more about the reputation of schools.
