Big Walnut Elementary

Parent Update 9.4.2015

Inspired Every Day...

This week, after sitting in on an online professional chat (#ohedchat) based around school and community engagement led by our very own BWIS Principal, Ryan McLane, I started to rethink my newsletter and how I could improve. Baby steps... I decided to start including the video segments at the bottom with our children. What better way to hear about what has happened all week than from them?


BWE is finishing up individual assessments in math and reading. Letters are coming home today in RED folders. If you have any questions, you can contact me or Mrs. Clark (740) 965-3209.

OSU Day is on TUESDAY...OH-!

Dress in your Ohio State spirit gear to carry on our Buckeye celebration from Monday! -IO!
