Fifth Grade Visits Chester County Technical High School

New Garden Elementary School’s fifth grade students enjoyed their hands-on visit at Chester County Technical College High School where each student received an overview of the more than twenty different programs available at the school. The students were also given the opportunity to jump right into the activities at some of the programs. Some examples included fixing small engines, caring for animals, baking, cooking, working with wood, experience the world of hair and make-up, learning police procedures, caring for young children, trying their hand at HVAC and refrigeration, and learning about different health careers. In each of these areas our students got right into the action – putting on safety gear and learning how to use the tools and equipment. The goal of the visit was to expose students to a variety of career choices for which training can begin in high school. New Garden Elementary School would like to thank the staff and students of the Chester County Technical College High School for a memorable field trip.

Dear New Garden Families,

As we end Teacher Appreciation Week and the first week of May, I find myself sitting and reflecting on this school year. This has been a year filled with many successes as well as challenges as we continue to navigate COVID 19, but here we are having completed our first online state testing for grade 3, 4, and 5, and a Reading Olympics competition, preparing for chorus and orchestra concerts, planning field day, planning some off- site trips, and so much more. I sit in awe as our entire New Garden Family- students, teachers, staff, and parents continue to come together to support one another to ensure that all students meet success. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart as we finish this school year strong knowing that we walk this journey together!

Below you will find a link to a calendar of events for May and June! Specific information about each event will be sent separately as the time approaches through Talking Points by your child’s teacher and will be posted on our website.

Once again, I thank you for allowing me to a part of your child’s story! We are in this together!

Have a wonderful and safe weekend!

They had fun and learned a ton about the government!
