Supply Kits for 2015-16 School Year

The PTA strives to make ordering school kits an easy process for parents ensuring that students arrive at the start of school with the necessary supplies waiting for them at their desks.  School kits are on sale now through June 19th from Innisbrook, the same company we used last year. We have worked with teachers to develop supply kit contents with the specific items they feel each student needs for a successful year, and this year's supply kits will contain the same quality items as we have had in the past. New this year, the supply kits include the quick word books for 2nd graders, two recorders for 3rd graders, and a customized assignment notebook for grades 3-6! Supply kits will be delivered directly to your child's classroom prior to the start of school.  

Click Here for a link to order your school kit. 
The 2015-2016 school supply lists will be posted on here on the Chesterbrook Elementary School website as a shopping guide.  If you choose to purchase supplies on your own, the additional required items (which includes a quick word book for 2nd graders, two recorders for 3rd graders, and a customized assignment notebook for grades 3-6) should be purchased during the Open House in September.  These items will also be available in the school store during the first few days of school.  Headphones and earbuds can be purchased at a local store or brought from home.

PTA Directory Information

The PTA has partnered with AtoZ School Directories to produce our directory. PTA members not only receive a free copy of the 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!



Our goal is to have the printed directory available in October, but we need your help!

Returning Chesterbrook Families: If you are a returning Chesterbrook family and your family's information was in last year's directory, you will receive a "verification" email from by the first day of school, September 2. The verification email will contain your user name, password, and instructions on how to access and verify your directory information, as well as access the AtoZ School Directory App. Please follow the directions outlined in this email to update your family data by Monday, September 8th. If you do not receive a verification email, please contact us at and we'll make sure that it is forwarded to you.

New Chesterbrook Families: If your family is new to Chesterbrook this year (or your family's information did not appear in last year's directory), please email us at as soon as   possible (please include your full name, your children's full names, and their grades this fall). We will then enter that information into the system so that you can receive a verification request email from our system on the first day of school (including your own login and password information).

This year's printed directory will be spiral bound with larger print for easy reading and will include a resource guide in the back of the directory listing sponsorships from local businesses that have defrayed the cost to the PTA of this new and improved directory. Anyone interested in promoting their business in the directory  can email AtoZ Directories at or click here for more information.

If you have any questions, please contact the directory team at either Thank you for continued help with the directory!
