Next Saturday, March 28th, we'll be finalizing the installation of Chesnut's Math Pizza Garden, designed by Chesnut's own School Master Gardeners. This new feature in our outdoor classroom will facilitate hands-on math lessons in the garden for all Chesnut classes, as well as the after-school Ecology Club. We need a group of adults to work together on moving the planters, shoveling planting soil and mulching. Parents can sign-up for a two-hour slot here and kids are welcome.
Please join the Parent Teacher Council on Thursday, April 2nd, 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the Dunwoody North Driving Club (4522 Kingsgate Drive) to hear a presentation about the status of our charter, get your questions answered and provide feedback.
This will also be an opportunity to learn about open positions on various PTC teams to help create a warm, enriching learning environment at your child's school.
The county-wide Pre-K lottery for the 2015-16 school year will be held on Friday, April 17, 2015 between 8:30 am and 1:00 pm. In order to participate in the lottery, parents may only register at the school that serves their legal address and should bring:
