Work on the 2017-2018 PTA directory has been ongoing. The PTA has partnered with AtoZ School Directories again to produce our directory this year. PTA members not only receive a free copy of the new and improved printed directory, but also access to a secure/password-protected directory app from AtoZ via a smart phone or any web-enabled device - so you can view the directory data where and when you need it!

Become a Chesterbrook Friend 

THANK YOU to the 147 Family Friends and 7 Business Friends that generously donated $35,519 to our 2016-2017 Friends of Chesterbrook fund. Friends of Chesterbrook is one of the PTA’s primary means of supporting critical student, school, and enrichment needs in areas not covered through standard school funding.


Donations support the following Chesterbrook PTA programs:

Student Support: technology (iPads, laptops), STEM programs, grade-wide grants (GRECO/Colonial Days, Science Fair), field trips, plus, PE, art and music equipment.

School Support: staff development, teacher stipends, classroom materials, media center support, and capital expenditures (common area furniture, whiteboards).  

Enrichment Programs: cultural arts and science assemblies, family fun events, health/wellness programs, International Night and the Discovery Gardens.


A donation of $100 per family would achieve our 2017-2018 Fundraising goal of $40,000, but your gift of any amount would be greatly appreciated!
