Chesnut families!  We have exciting news!  The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Emergency Connectivity Fund has provided funds for internet services and devices for students who lack sufficient access for remote learning.    


But - We need to hear from you first!    


Each family is being asked to complete the DCSD Student Access Survey. Survey responses will be used to determine the connectivity needs for our school district and to purchase devices.  A link to the survey has been placed on our school website and sent to you by your child's teacher. If you have questions or need assistance completing the survey, call the school at 678-676-7102.   


Let’s get new devices for our children!

We are committed to maintaining a school culture that celebrates the rich cultural diversity within our school community as well as exposing students to diverse learning experiences.  With Hispanic Heritage Month, grade levels are researching famous and influential Hispanic Americans along with the great contributions they have made to our society.   This past week students took great pride in their projects and were proud to share with teachers, classmates and me. This coming week we look forward to include fun facts, trivia, videos and literature books related Hispanic Heritage Month.  Here is a quick trivia question for you.  Who was the first Hispanic Woman to go into space? She was also the second woman to become the Director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
