Parent Resource Center



Welcome Parents!

Chestnut Log Middle is happy to provide a resource center just for parents. Our goal is to help parents understand what their children are learning so that they are better able to help their children at home with homework and projects. We know that parent involvement makes all the difference in the success of our students. The Title I Parent Resource Center offers materials and resource that parents may borrow. We offer books on various subjects, parenting, discipline, and to how to help your child with homework to name a few.

Our Parent Resource Center is open on Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.- 4:00 in room 407. Please drop in or call 770-651-5153 to make an appointment.

We look forward to your visit!
