Message from Dr. Angela Bain

Ending 2016-2017 School Year

 Well, here it is! The last week of the 2016-2017 school year! Where did the time go?  Some of you are preparing for your students to graduate, and some of you are preparing for your children to enter school for the first time next year.  

 It is exciting for us as educators to see our students graduate with high school diplomas and to see the little ones coming through our doors for the first time! 

As parents, it may be a little bittersweet to see your child graduate and move on to the next adventure in their lives. We know the feeling! As we watch our students cross the stage at graduation, it almost brings tears to our eyes to know that we have had a part in their educational and personal successes over the years.  Thank you for allowing us the time with your children! 

Congratulations graduates of Chester County School District!

As we look forward to the summer and the next school year, if you have school-age children, we encourage you to do some things this summer with your children that will “stretch” their learning and encourage their thinking!  Try some of the items listed below with your elementary students…and maybe your older students as well!

Remember that when our students read and participate in educational activities during the summer, they maintain their critical thinking processes so that they are better prepared for the rigors of the next school year.

Here are a few websites you might want to visit to encourage your child’s learning throughout the summer.
