The holiday season is in full swing here at Chesterbrook Academy. Your participation in our school activities has been amazing! Your generous donations towards our Thanksgiving food drive brought in wondrous results! We are very grateful for your support and ongoing commitment to our Chesterbrook Academy community. YOU ROCK!
‘Tis the season for giving! We would like to continue reaching out to our community this month as well. Beginning December 1st please donate new or gently used pajamas to the lobby. These pajamas will be donated to the Treasure Coast Foster Closet in Stuart. This will be our forth year contributing to this non-profit organization who assists families who foster children by allowing them to collect the items needed when bringing foster children into their homes. The Foster Closet was very grateful last year when we donated nearly 80 sets of pajamas, a clothing item that is not a popular donation to the closet but greatly needed! I know we can bring in more this year, we’ve got this!
It’s time to explore December celebrations, observances, and activities from many cultures. What is another name for St. Nicholas? What is a Menorah? What is a Karamu? The answers to these questions will be highlighted in December lessons that will cover multi-cultural holiday traditions. Be sure to check out the pictures teachers will be sending home showcasing the classroom education boards to see evidence of learning fun! Speak to your child’s teacher if you would like to share a special tradition from your family with the class.
Stay tuned for exciting events coming up like our “Pajama Party Breakfast and Book Exchange!” This has become an exciting annual event where students come to school in their pajamas and enjoy breakfast foods. Children are able to bring in one wrapped book to exchange with a classmate and one unwrapped book for the classroom library. The students enjoy seeing the books their classmates receive and a stocked library with books from their peers!

The purpose of our sick policy is to reduce the spread of illness among our students and to encourage full recuperation of sick children before they return to school. We depend on parents to assist us in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all of our children.
Children may be sent home if they have any concerning symptoms. Also, a child must be free of all of these symptoms for at least 24 hours before he/she can return to school. These symptoms include:
- A Fever of 100 degrees or more
- Vomiting within the previous 24-hour period
- Diarrhea within the previous 24-hour period
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior and not himself/ herself
- Green runny nose
Following an illness, a child may return to school once he/she has either been seen by a doctor or it has been determined that illness is not contagious. (A doctor’s clearance may be requested.) Please help us keep all of our children healthy by following these rules. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Thank you for your support!
TUITION: Tuition is due the 1st business day of every month. Accounts not paid in full by 12:00 pm the second business day of every month will automatically receive a late fee of $30. If tuition is not paid in full by the 5th business day of each month, your child may not attend until the balance is paid in its entirety. Failure to comply with tuition policies will result in a notice of dis-enrollment. If you’d like to sign up for our ACH program, which automatically pulls your monthly tuition from the account of your choice the 1st business day of every month, just let us know, and we will help get you enrolled.
ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS FEES: Enrichments will start again in January with Amazing Athletes. The cost is $55 per month for a 30 minute session once per week.
