October News

from Chesterbrook Academy Elementary @ Oaks

We are in FALL Swing!

The school year is most officially underway....

It's almost hard to believe we have been in school for over a month now! We have successfully gathered together at Back-to-School Night and shared an afternoon of Bingo with our loving Seniors on Grandparents Day. We look forward to a Fire Prevention assembly from our firefighting friends of the BRVF Fire Company, the annual Halloween Parade and infamous Fall Spook-takular!

The Butterfly Garden at CBA Oaks!

Sponsored by PTAC in conjunction with our school, the Butterfly Garden is the amazing creation of our most talented 5th-grade teacher, Mrs. Amanda Vail, and her band of merry 5th graders, now alumni! Thank you, Mrs. Vail and the graduating class of 2015!
