Dear Parents and Families,

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the halfway point of the first trimester. The start of the 2020-2021 school year has flown by, and we have witnessed tremendous growth from our students. It seems like only yesterday students were learning how to navigate the nuances of remote learning and Seesaw, while today they have blossomed into tech savvy students. Their digital literacy has grown exponentially, and we are proud of their accomplishments.

Teachers will be sharing narrative progress report updates this trimester to families via Seesaw, on October 5. Please check your Family Account for this important information.This style of reporting provides for a comprehensive update on all facets of your child's performance as it relates to remote learning. In reviewing the report, should you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child's teacher. We deeply value your collaboration in the educational process. Your partnership is priceless.

Thank you to all who completed our Walker Remote Learning Check-in Survey. Your feedback is guiding our next steps for future parent programming, and it affords us the opportunity to make alterations to better fit the needs of our families. We expect to offer a parent program in October based on your responses.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Educationally yours,

Ms. Venegonia, Principal

Mrs. Leone, Associate Principal
