School News You Can Use!
We had a wonderful first week of school with our Wildcats! It was great seeing our students this past Wednesday in-person, followed by the beginning of 109 Online. The first two days of learning this week were devoted to building a class community, getting to know one another, and developing trusting relationships. Next week, in addition to continuing to connect, we will begin our content-based instruction with math, reading, writing, and more! Please look for an email from your classroom teacher on Sunday with information about the week.
We very much appreciate all of your support at home as we transition back into school and learn how to navigate our new schedules. Developing routines with children is so important and we thank you for doing your best at home to help your children prepare for each day. Enjoy the beautiful weekend and we will see you back next week!

Storytime with Mrs. Strenger
We understand that some Walden families are exploring different options for school this year. If your family would like to "unenroll" your child, please send an email to Katy Ruocco at email@example.com. The email should include:
- student(s) name, grade, school here in 109
- will the student(s) be
- moving - out of state
- moving - out of the country
- not moving - will be attending a private school in Illinois
- not moving - will be home schooled
Families are welcome to re-enroll during the school year as long as they still meet our residency requirements.
