Tightening Up Tutorial

We will start the "Mustang Round-Up" on Tuesday, November 5.

Here are some details:

  • Tutorial announcements are currently being made letting students know they have to be in a classroom during tutorial by the bell otherwise they will be sent to the "Mustang Round-Up" in the MPR
  • A GLC will scan students in and an email will be sent to parents/guardians
  • All students in "Mustang Round Up" will quietly work on something in the MPR. It is not a hang out time! We really want our students to focus on finishing homework, getting extra help, and using that time during the school day to get ahead.
  • Please lock your door from 10:40 - 10:50 am! This will help us get kids to the MPR and let them know the importance of getting to class on time.

Note: Please remind students of the importance of tutorial! More work during tutorial leads to less work at home.


The Grading Portal will be opened to ALL USERS on, Thursday, October 31st to Friday, November 8th.

Grades DUE by 3:00 p.m. on FRIDAY, November 8th.

Thanks everyone.

Landis and NHS Induction

Last Friday, our National Honor Society held its Induction Ceremony. Over 60 members were inducted as they made a commitment to uphold the four pillars of Character, Leadership, Service, and Scholarship. A true embodiment of The Walnut Way.
