Fun Fair 2015

One More Week To Purchase Wristbands!!!
Over 120 Volunteers Still Needed!!!
Saturday, March 14th from 10:00 am-2:00 pm!!!
 
Get ready for the most fun event of the year at Chesterbrook! This year's Fun Fair is all about THE FORMULA FOR FUN which begins with the Chesterbrook community. All the favorites will be back like the sweet (formerly cupcake) walk, moon bounces, guesstimates, lollipop tree, lots of fun games, teacher raffles, basket raffles, and a few new surprises too. So, come join us for this wonderful community FUNraiser as well as a FUNDraiser for Chesterbrook. All funds raised support a variety of programs sponsored by the PTA.

Things To Do Before Fun Fair:
 
1. Click here to purchase your wristbands and tickets now. Wristbands will only be available for pre-sale through Monday, March 2nd. They will not be available at the door.
 
2. Volunteers Needed for Fun Fair (Adults and Middle/High Schoolers)
 
This event is the most fun day of the year for the kids and is a wonderful community event for all. It does take many volunteers to make this happen. We never want to cancel part of it due to lack of volunteers. Please consider volunteering for a shift or two. It is also a wonderful opportunity for those with other commitments during the week, to volunteer on a Saturday. There is an opportunity for everyone--including middle and high school students. Please sign up early to be able to work with a friend or get your first choice.
 
Listed below is the link for adult volunteers and a separate one for middle and high school students who would like to volunteer to earn community service hours.

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 chesterbrook@schooldirectoryupdate.com 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 directory@chesterbrookpta.org 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 directory@chesterbrookpta.org 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 info@atozdirectories.com or click here for more information.

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