Hello CBA Community,

As we end our 1st Trimester and start the holiday season, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the start of our school year!

We could not be more proud of our community this year. We are constantly reminded of the commitment, dedication, perseverance and flexibility of our parents, teachers and students.

First, thank you to our amazing teachers! In a time where people are leaving the industry at record numbers, you have chosen to be a part of CBA. I am humbled by your tireless efforts in these times to do whatever it takes, in and out of the classroom, to create an experience that can only be had here at CBA! In addition to the rigorous and personalized teaching, you have added projects, events and fields trips back to the daily life for our students. It is so incredible to see the smiling faces of our students each day! Thank you for all you do and I hope the break brings you time to reflect on the difference you make each day. Also, please take time to thank your families. We know the sacrifice they make to allow you to spend so much time with CBA! Enjoy your break and I can’t wait to see what you have planned for the 2nd Trimester.

Next, thank you to our parents. We can’t do this job alone. We remain committed to guiding, molding and teaching your children, together. It is a true partnership. Your daily kind words, flexibility, patience and support are appreciated and only pushes us to do more! We look forward to our parent teacher conferences as we celebrate your child’s success this trimester. To our PAC, you are amazing! We could not ask for a better group of parents to help us grow our school community. You are true heroes and we love you for everything you do!

Last, and certainly not least, thank you to our students! You are the reason we are all here! You make us smile each day with your laughs, jokes, hard work and kind acts! Keep working hard and we will continue to keep you guessing, as we have lots of exciting things planned this year!

On behalf of the entire CBA team, thank you all for being a part of CBA! The CBA community has us wanting to come back to work each and every day. I wish you all a relaxing break and time to appreciate the little things that we often forget as we rush through our daily lives.

Thank you,

Mr. Rodia

CBA Holiday Gift Shop

Monday, Nov. 29th, 7am to Friday, Dec. 3rd, 4pm

1190 McDermott Drive

West Chester, PA

We are inviting you and your child to participate in the upcoming Holiday Gift Shop program at our school. This program makes it possible for children to experience the joy of choosing their own special holiday gifts for family and friends. The Holiday Gift Shop will be set up at school.

We welcome you to be part of this great experience. A Money Control envelope has been sent home with your child for you to help them decide who they should buy gifts for and how much they should spend.

We believe this program will create wonderful memories for the children while teaching them to budget their money and make their own decisions. There will be a large variety of gifts to choose from. Imagine the fun they will have surprising a loved one with a "secret" gift they bought all by themselves!

To prepare our students for their shopping experience, please take the time to fill out the Money Control envelope with your child. It is designed to help them decide whom they will be shopping for and how much they can spend on each person. If you provide a check for your child, please make it payable to: Chesterbrook Academy Elementary.

Prices range from $1 to $10

Gift Shop Dates: Monday, November 29th - Friday, December 3rd

Keep an eye out in your email for your child's class shopping day.
