Become a Chesterbrook Friend 

2016 is a special year in our school community, as it marks the 110th anniversary of Chesterbrook Elementary. I'm writing today to ask you to join me in making a donation of $110 or more to support our school by Becoming a Friend of Chesterbrook.


Your support this year is crucial to ensure the PTA can continue to fully fund the stipends, programs, materials and resources we have traditionally funded. We are $15,000 away from realizing our budgeted goal and we need your help! 


Become a Friend of Chesterbrook and join the 142 families and 6 businesses who have already generously donated this year. A tax-deductible donation of $110 or more, in honor of Chesterbrook's 110th, from 140 more families will get us to the finish line! 

There are two quick and easy ways to give:

1. You can donate online here

2. You can donate by check made payable to "Chesterbrook PTA."

Additionally, businesses that donate $500 to our Business Friends of Chesterbrook program are recognized on our website and in many other ways via PTA communications and at school.
