PTA Directory Information

AtoZ School Directories is working hard on the 2015-16 Chesterbrook PTA Directory. Not only do PTA members receive a free copy of the printed directory, they also have access to a secure, password-protected directory app – available in the Apple App Store and on Goggle Play. View directory data anywhere you want and need it via your smart phone or any web-enabled device.


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 8. 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 14th. 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).  


The printed directory is spiral bound and includes a resource guide in the back listing sponsorships from local businesses that have defrayed the production cost to the PTA.  If you are interested in promoting your business in the directory, please email AtoZ Directories at for more information. 


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