After collecting community feedback at two well-attended forums at the Spring Fling and DNDC Clubhouse, Chesnut's PTC - including administration, faculty and parent representatives - has agreed to move forward in submitting for Chesnut's charter renewal. For any stakeholders who were unable to attend, please see the presentation here.
Whether to suggest issues that you'd like the charter to address, or to join the CRC (Charter Rewrite Committee), please email
Thank you to the families who came out to the March Clean and Beautiful, especially to C&B Chair Andrew Hirst -- they made our School Master Gardeners' math garden design a reality! For pictures and details, check out this Chesnut Changers blog posting.
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:
- original certified birth certificate - children must turn 4 years old on or before September 1 to be age-eligible for the program
- proof of residency (electric, gas or water bill, apartment lease or house contract)
- child's Social Security Number
- photo identification
No applications will be accepted before 8:30 AM or after 1:00 PM. All children not chosen will be placed in a waiting pool until spaces become available. Schools continue to accept applications for the waiting pool after the lottery utilization, if and when space becomes available in the class.
