Many thanks to our amazing Fort Daniel Elementary PTA Executive Board for organizing a successful Fun Run Fundraiser and awesome prizes for our students. Many thanks for keeping this tradition going this year. Thank you to FDES parents and the entire Dacula Community for making us SHINE SO BRIGHT! Have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving break!

Mr. Washington was our top earner for the PTA Fun Run Fundraiser and had the privilege of serving as Principal for the Day. He met with teachers, custodians and cafeteria workers. He also visited classrooms but what he enjoyed most of all was talking on the walkie! Mr. Washington declared that all students get 5 additional minutes of recess Thursday. Thank You Principal Washington!

Welcome! Parent Lunch Visitors Beginning Nov. 29th (Limited Capacity)

Parent Lunch Visitors will be allowed in the cafeteria based on a limited capacity and the following safety expectations:



  • We have one table designated for parents. Once that table is full, additional parents may not enter. They may select a different day or eat at the outdoor patio.
  • We will only be able to accommodate one guest per student (no siblings or additional guests).
  • Visitors will need to leave campus at the conclusion of the lunch period so that we are maintaining safety.
  • Visitors must be listed on the student's contact list.
  • Visitors may not follow students to the playground.
  • When your student's class is dismissed to line up, your student must also dismiss
  • Teachers will be busy supervising their classes at the conclusion of lunch and will not have time to conference when picking up their students. Please be sure to reach out to the teacher to schedule a time to talk.



We will continue to offer parents the opportunity to visit for lunch as long as we are safely able to do so. We will continue to follow safety guidance as usual. We look forward to seeing you! ~Thank You!
