Spirit Night is August 16th at The Mad Italian

Join us for our first Spirit Night of the 2022-23 School Year! The Mad Italian 💓s Chesnut. They've been one of our biggest fans and most generous supporters in recent years. Let's return the love AND make some money for Chesnut in the process. Order takeout or dine in between 4:00pm and 9:00pm on Tuesday, August 16th and 10% of the proceeds will go to The Friends of Chesnut Foundation! Just mention Chesnut. See you there!










As we embark upon another amazing school year, we are excited to invite our amazing volunteers back into the building! We need your help for various volunteer opportunities. Thank you in advance for your sharing your time with our amazing school community!

Real-Time Information About Your Child’s School Bus Transportation


Parents – DeKalb County School District provides the Edulog Parent Portal smartphone app to help you receive information about your child’s school bus ride. It allows you to: 

  • Access designated bus stop times and locations
  • See real-time information about the location of your child’s school bus
  • Receive notifications when the bus is getting close


Edulog Parent Portal lets parents see the time and location planned for school bus arrival at their child’s bus stop. The app also lets them view the location of the school bus to gauge arrival times each day and sends a push notification to their smartphone when the bus enters a user-defined geographic area around the stop. Parents only receive access by registering with data unique to their child. It’s all information to help parents feel secure about their child’s trip on the school bus!


Find out more information here.

This year, Chesnut has partnered with Lands' End to provide custom school uniforms for students and staff. 

  • With the Lands' End School Rewards Program, Chesnut will receive up to a 3% cash-back reward from the school's total uniform purchases.
  • You can rely on the same availability of colors, sizes, school logos and fits, year in and year out.
  • Their school uniforms are built to last the school year - and the next brother or sister in line.
  • They've got every kid covered, with hard-to-find fits like slim, tall, plus and husky, junior and young men's fits for teens.

 The custom shopping experience for Chesnut Elementary School is live and may be viewed here.




Parent resources for discussions on racism


On behalf of Chesnut's Multicultural team we have provided a link to resources for parents that provide guidance on "How to talk to your kids about anti racism".




If you wish to learn about or become a part of Chesnut's Multicultural team please e-mail  community@chesnutelementary.com






To participate in the Chesnut Challenge, students get sponsorships from relatives, friends and businesses, which helps the school fund large projects such as enhancing the school buildings, purchasing resources for our teachers or acquiring additional equipment.


For the 2022-2023 school year, the Chesnut Challenge will be also raising funds for the hiring of a Spanish teacher and the implementation of a Spanish learning program, which will expose all students to introductory and conversational Spanish.
