Important Information

April 29, 2016

We have a lot going on here at Chesterbrook Academy, North Raleigh. Time is going by really fast and I want to make sure you have updated information. Please pay close attention to all emails.


Thank you to our second grade class for sponsoring our "Angels Among Us" giving without walls project. Last week we enjoyed "DUCK" doughnuts and coffee! Families donated and we are so appreciative. The class raised over $1200.00. Duke Medical Center and the Pediatric Cancer Center thanks our school! Saturday, many of the second grade students walked/raced in the "Angels Among Us" event at Duke University and had a wonderful time. Thank you again for your participation and giving back to our community.


This week I sent out information with regards to staff appreciation. Thursday is our big day to celebrate. All other days are optional. Please do what you wish! The PTO will be serving lunch to our staff Thursday.

Monday: Give a Flower to a special someone

Tuesday: Draw a picture for someone special

Wednesday: Bring a special edible treat to someone special

Thursday: Share a little Retail Therapy (gift card) and make today the best day!

Friday: Share a special note, telling them how much they mean to your family

You may participate in one or all the days, but make Thursday the most spectacular! Our staff love your children and anything is special!
