Chesnut Charter Elementary has a new media center and faculty lounge.
“The students were happy to return to school with our new library,” said Laura Wood, the school media specialist. “The bright clean environment gets the students excited about reading. The Chesnut community is amazing. Thank you to all of the parents and teachers who work so hard to make this dream a reality."
The makeover of the Dunwoody-based school was achieved through a variety of resources. Funds were raised through the Parent Teacher Council, and substantial discounts and donations were received this summer by Dream Works Painting & Remodeling LLC; BP Upholstery; Shaw Contract Group; Spectra Contract Floor and Atlanta Office Liquidators, Inc.
The school also raised money through fundraisers, including its first-ever
Boosterthon Fun Run in which the children raised money for the school, while
promoting fitness, leadership and character.
“We are working towards improving the instructional program at Chesnut by enhancing our resources,” said principal, Veronica Williams. “Our newly renovated Media Center creates a bright new environment that has been designed to accommodate large group activities, easier accessibility to resources, and a teacher resource center.”
Chesnut Charter Elementary celebrates its 45th anniversary, this year.
