On November 1st the Chesnut PAC held a special open meeting with Chesnut parents to draft Chesnut’s official response to the three redistricting options presented at the Round 2 Austin Redistricting meeting.

This letter is the official response as voted on and approved by Chesnut parents and the Chesnut PAC.

After reviewing the letter please take a few minutes to complete the county’s survey (link below), the second of three, that is designed to collect input from stakeholders in the Dunwoody Cluster community and will provide community feedback into the redistricting decisions. The survey will close at midnight November 10, 2019.

Goal? $32,000     Raised? $37,000!

Friday we celebrated the end of the Chesnut Challenge with a Jeffini the Great Magic Show! 

The kids had a blast! There was a lot to celebrate because not only did we reach our goal of $32,000, but we exceeded that goal raising $37,000!

We want to thank all our Chesnut students and families for their generous donations!

We want to extend a HUGE thank you to our Chesnut Challenge team. Marie Warren and Kelly Kenning Smith are co-chairs of this amazing campaign. Their team also includes Blair Boone who handles sponsors, and Andrea Boynton McGuire who took care of prize patrol for the Chesnut Challenge this year!! We are so grateful for the four of them, and all of their hard work!!!! They have all spent countless hours putting this together!!!
