Dear Families and Friends of Chesterfield School,
I want to start this month’s newsletter with a big THANK YOU!! All of the warrant articles passed at the annual school budget meeting. This gives our support staff a new three-year contract, an operating budget and the ability to purchase the Chickering land. From all of us at the school, we appreciate the continued support of our community.
Next I would like to congratulate our Destination Imagination teams. The teams participated in the annual DI Regional Tournament and represented us well. All of our teams competed with Chesterfield PRIDE. As a result we did have two teams qualify for the state tournament. This will be held on April 1st at Bedford High School. I want to also congratulate one of our teams for earning the highest award at competition, called the Renaissance Award. This award is given to one team at the tournament that has outstanding design, engineering, execution and performance. I am very proud of all of our teams. A big thank you to all our DI parent volunteers. Whether you were a coach, judge, or a spectator, thank you for supporting our teams.
April 6th & 7th are kindergarten registration days here at Chesterfield School. If you know of a family who has a child turning 5 by September 30th, please encourage them to come and register. Having an accurate count is important in our planning. I am pleased to say at this point our enrollment is securing two sections of every grade level, except for grade 6. We hope that our kindergarten numbers match our estimates so that we are able to run two sections of this as well.
Middle school students are hoping for spring sports to begin soon. Currently, we have a softball and track coach. We have a few interested folks for baseball but no commitments yet. If you are interested please contact our AD, Mr. Justin Jarvis. He is also looking for volunteers to help throughout the season.
It is also time for parents of grade six and seven students to begin planning the eighth grade graduation celebration. Mrs. Profaizer has mailed home information on this and is waiting to hear from parents. Please join us in a long-standing tradition of creating a night of celebration for our graduates.
Enjoy the spring like weather and I look forward to seeing you at the spring concert series.
