Clip Those Box Tops for Education


Congratulations Chesterbrook Elementary! Your Box Tops for Education submissions for 2013-14 earned our school $1,064! Let's see if this year we can earn even more! Ask your neighbors and friends if they can collect the coupons for us. Any little bit helps as each coupon is worth 10 cents to Chesterbrook.

Collecting Box Tops is so easy. All you need to do is cut out the Box Tops coupons found on General Mills products, put them in a baggie, and have your child drop them off in the "Box Tops for Education" container across from the school Media Center. The deadline for 2014 is Friday, October 24.

If you have a 6th grader, middle schooler, or high school student who needs community service hours, we can put them to work. We need help trimming and counting the coupons. If you are interested, please contact Susie French at

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!
