Empathy - Equity - Effectiveness - Excellence

Hello Fort Daniel Families,

Our clocks have turned back but we are still moving forward with great things here at Fort Daniel! Many reminders of what makes our school so wonderful have been present the past few weeks and a quote came to me that sums up where we are as we enter a season of thankfulness. "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate action of its members." We thank you for the compassion and care you show for our sweet school!


We are looking forward to welcoming families next week for our Thankful Candlelight Lunch Celebrations. Please see details below prior to coming.


Last, but certainly not least, myself and our FDES Staff celebrated Ms. Kristan Chase as Gwinnett County Public Schools honored the GCPS Teachers of the Year. We are so proud of Ms. Chase and seeing her publicly recognized for all the ways she makes FDES a better place truly warmed our hearts. Go Ms. Chase!


Thank you to everyone for helping to create the school we all love!


Dr. Tucker, Principal

FDES Honors Our Veterans!
