A Note from Our Principal
We’re fully embracing the summer season, enjoying our time teaching and bringing fun to our students in these warm months! Our teachers have added activities into their lesson plans that our students can enjoy outside. We can’t wait to share photos with you soon via Links 2 Home. We hope this month is filled with health and happiness for you and your families.
Family Referral Bonus & Open House
Do you know a colleague who has recently had a baby, a friend in need of care who just relocated to the area, or a family member who is seeking a new preschool for their child? Invite them to our Open House on August 5 (10am-1pm). When you refer a friend and they enroll, you’re eligible for a free week of tuition. Ask us for details!
Independence Day Activities
On Monday, July 3rd, our classrooms will be working on festive activities to celebrate Independence Day. Show your holiday spirit and wear Red, White and Blue!
Kids Helping Communities
As we do every summer, we will be participating in our Kids Helping Communities initiative to give back to communities in need. This year, we will be partnering with “Alex’s Lemonade Stand” by selling lemonade and accepting donations to benefit the Foundation for Childhood Cancer . The drive will begin July 1st and continue through July 31st. You will be able to make lemonade purchases and donations during this time. The lemonade stand will be open at the school the week of July 17th-July 21st.
Here is the website for online donations. From the drop box section, choose Chesterbrook Academy of Columbia (1125)
