Summer Quest 2016



Chesterbrook's very own summer camp program, Summer Quest, is just around the corner. Camps will run in week-long sessions July 11- August 5 with classes for rising kindergartners through rising 7th graders. We'll be offering morning, afternoon, and after-camp sessions and are targeting a mid-February registration.
 
The catalog for 2016 can be found here.  A summary of the classes by week can be found here.

Register HERE beginning Tuesday February 23 at 7pm.
 
Additional information and all Summer Quest policies can be found here.

Proceeds from the Summer Quest camps support Chesterbrook's technology department. If you have any questions about the program, please email:summerquest@chesterbrookpta.org







Spring Book Fair



Chesterbrook's Spring Book Fair is sure to get your kids excited about reading!  Held in the school library on April 26, 27, and 28, this important PTA event will have daytime hours (8:30 am - 4:30 pm) and an evening Milk & Cookie Night on Wednesday, (5:30 - 7:30 pm) with surprise readers for storytime in the pod, raffle baskets and book recommendations from our own, Ms. Reid.

School Supply Kits for 2016-17



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.  Look for supply kit information in the coming weeks via the Chipmunk Courier!  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.  Like last year, the supply kits include the quick word books for 2nd graders, two recorders for 3rd graders, and a customized assignment notebook for grades 3rd-6th. Supply kits will be delivered directly to your child's classroom prior to the start of school.








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.  

Questions? Contact friends@chesterbrookpta.org.
