New Track for Peachtree, Water Pump Station for Dunwoody

Hey kids and parents, no need to text Clorox for a new track.  This summer a new track will be built at Peachtree Charter Middle School, thanks to our local school board representative Nancy Jester and the school board. Many people have been working to get this done for years, and it looks like it's a done deal.  The first time I met our new superintendent, at one of her fire-side chats at Dunwoody High School, I asked her when PCMS would get a new track.  I also asked that question of Barbara Coleman (former DeKalb Schools construction chief who left suddenly) last month at last month's DHA meeting.  And many others have been pushing for this to take place. I suggest you send a note of thanks to our new superintendent and school board members.

In other local news related to DeKalb schools, the school system sold a chunk of their property on Chamblee Dunwoody Road.  The .33 acre chunk will be home to a soccer field owner-occupied condo single family home DeKalb County water pump station.  This property is zoned for residential (not multi family) so I am not sure what this does to the value of the property.  I doubt it increases the value, but any home built there should have excellent water pressure.

Vanderlyn Art Club at Village Burger

The Vanderlyn art teacher, quite a talent, brought the school's art club to Village Burger on Saturday to do some window painting.  Stop by for a burger (or salad) and view the paintings.
