Dear Parents, 

Spirit Week is almost upon us!  Next week we’ll be enjoying a delicious and delightful menu planned by none other than fourth grader Annika Wanagel-Rojas, and Student Council, in addition to planning some great theme days, has another surprise treat in store as well.  We are excited for a wonderful week and a fun celebration of this fantastic school year, and we look forward to seeing some creative outfits.   

  • Tuesday - Sports Day!  Show some spirit for your favorite team, or sport your own uniform!
  • Wednesday - Wacky Wednesday!  Opposites, mismatch, inside out, and backwards.  How many crazy patterns and prints can you put together?  How wild can your hair-do get?  Time to get creative!
  • Thursday - Throwback Thursday! Take a blast through the past with us, and showcase the fashion from a different generation!  80s dance party, anyone?
  • Friday - Disney Day!  Calling all Jedi, fairytale heroes, and even famous villains … . Today you are invited to dress up Disney style! 



Please remember that for Theme Days and Free Dress Days, school dress code guidelines should still be followed for appropriate footwear (i.e. no flip-flops or cleats), length of skirts and shorts, etc.  We request that masks or any costumes that are violent/scary in nature be left at home.  

CHA FIELD DAY - Field Day will be held June 8th at Newcastle Beach Park in Newcastle. This is an enjoyable, old-fashion day where the main goal is great fun for kids, staff and parents!   We are looking for a group of enthusiastic parent volunteers who want to be involved in this year’s Field Day.  The event runs from 9:00 – 2:00 on Thursday June 8th.  The parent volunteers are a huge part of what makes this day so wildly successful  each year.  Your enthusiasm and involvement are much appreciated! You can sign up here

PHILANTHROPY AT CHA - EASTSIDE ACADEMY BROWN BAG LUNCH - CHA and CHAPTER successfully partnered to create brown bag lunches for Eastside Academy!  LaTosha Smith, Chair of the event delivered these lunches on Thursday to a very appreciative student body.  Thank you for your donations, participation and support. 

CHA ART SHOW - Art Show Week is Tuesday, May 30th - Friday, June 2nd,  and the CHA artists have been very busy finishing up with their art show projects. The students are welcome to enter 1 or 2 pieces of their choice by any time between Monday, May 22nd  and Thursday, May 25th, to a table next to the front desk. There will be Art Show Tags available for your children to label their art on the table next to the front desk., each piece of art must be tagged, framing is optional. The students’ art works will be displayed during the Art Show Week, Tuesday, May 30th – Friday, June 2nd, all around the school. If you have any questions please contact Phoebe Choi

PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEY The survey is still open!  It can be found on the Chestnut Hill Academy home page:  It  is the third call out button below Summer Camp.  Today’s $100 gift certificate winner is Kimila Boyapati!  Congratulations, Kimila!  We appreciate you completing the survey.  

WALK ON - The Bright Horizons Walk On will take place on Saturday, June 10th at 10:00 at Magnuson Park.  I hope you’ll consider joining us on this day for a great cause.  T-Shirt order forms will be sent out soon. The Walk On supports and maintains our Bright Horizons Bright Spaces and Foundation.   To date, CHA has created 4 Bright Spaces that we continue to support through a variety of ways including sustaining a partnership with each space we’ve opened, an All Star Team that checks in with the space and spruces up the décor and work we’ve done previously to ensure the space is a positive place for teens, children, and their parents to spend time in.  Walk On Feet are for sale at the front desk for $1/foot!  We’d love to write your name, your child’s name or a family members name on a foot or two and proudly display it in the lobby.  Our goal is to raise $500 for the Walk On. You can donate here if you would like to - Thank you for your support!  

CAMP EXPLORATIONS - There is still time to register for Chestnut Hill Academy’s summer camp program, Camp Explorations!  All the information on summer camp, and the Online Registration Form, is available at If you are navigating the various BUCA and Schools Out! plans there is a decision making tool on the page that you might find handy. We have an amazing summer planned with endless opportunities for engineering, cooking, art, mathematics, sports, leadership, water play, and more, and we look forward to some great field trips and workshops!
