CHESTERFIELD & COLUMBUS, NJ -
Both Chesterfield and Northern go back on Tuesday, September 6th. Northern has been busy during the summer upgrading the parking lots and changing the bus routes through the campus to make the traffic pattern safer for students. This past week, the new parking lots were paved. Important opening day documents for students and parents are available at NBurlington.com

The Chesterfield Elementary incoming Kindergarten Class of 2023 got a chance this past week to learn more about their school and their community.
The kindergartners-to-be met officers of Chesterfield's Police Department who explained how to safely wait at your bus stop, and how to get on the bus. The officer also explained how to safely walk or ride your bike to school. The children then had an opportunity to board a real school bus, and learn how to fasten their seat belts.
The Crosswicks Library Company also had a display at the event, and gave each child a free book to keep, and handed out information to parents about upcoming library activities.
The Chesterfield PTA was there selling Chesterfield branded T-Shirts, magnets, and more, and accepting parental memberships into the PTA. They also sponsored the Rita's Ice stand for the kids and their parents.
Maggie Brittain of Chesterfield Kids for Community, who organized the event, told WBNC News, "It's all about community, everyone starting together on the right foot... and heading into the school year together."
Chesterfield Kids for Community, who encourages children to get involved in their community and volunteer, is now working to help the victims of the Louisiana flooding. Corissa Kanuck told us of a friend at the Ticonderoga Parish in Louisiana. That school was, "one of the hardest hit schools... they were in desperate need of school supplies for all of their students that have been displaced."
