Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. Despite the challenges we have faced this year, it is reassuring to know that we have found comfort in the simpler things in life and spending time with our loved ones. Here at Walker, we often reflect on how lucky we are to be part of a caring school community. Guiding your children on their educational journey and partnering with families fills each and every staff member with gratitude. We thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your life.

This week students have been diligently working to close out the first trimester. Daily, we witness students discovering, applying, and creating through various activites. We celebrate what they have accomplished thus far, and we look forward to all they will be learning in the coming months. Please remember to sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences with your child's teacher, so that you can hear more about their individual accomplishments this trimester. Report cards will be mailed home prior to conferences.

It is our sincere hope that you and your family are staying healthy. Please continue to follow safety measures, and reach out to us if we can be of any assistance.

Be safe, be well.

Ms. Venegonia, Principal

Mrs. Leone, Associate Principal
