Congrats to our September Students of the Month!

Each month our GLCs will recognize one student who they believe represents the Walnut Way and positively impacts our campus. Please congratulate the following students for being selected for the month of SEPTEMBER!


Scientific evidence shows us the positive effects of doing kind acts for others and receiving or even witnessing kindness. Even the smallest act of kindness can change a life.

This week we had four days of Kindness Activities. Below is a recap of each day:

  • Sweet Treat Tuesday: Sweet Treats given out by ASB.
  • Friendship Wednesday: Make friendship bracelets with your friends.
  • Thankful Thursday: Put a clothespin on someone's backpack with a positive message.
  • Flower Friday: Give someone a flower to make their day!

Class of 2026 Personality and Strengths Assessment

One of the most frequent questions GLCs get from parents is "how can I best help my student to self-discover?" This is a great question because more and more colleges are looking for students who have a clear knowledge of who they are and what they can contribute to their specific institution. There are several tools that can help, but one great starting point is a personality or strengths tests. Here is a short video about the test that will be given.

If you are interested in taking this exam, there are two dates when it can be taken:

  • For Mrs. Schultz’s students (A-Lim): Thursday, September 22nd in the MPR.
  • For Mr. Galeener’s students (Lin-Z): Thursday, September 29th in the MPR.

We hope to see you there!
