Spring Time: A Time To Connect And Reflect!

Hello Families!

I am so excited that we are getting closer to spring as that means longer daylight hours, drying up the mud and more outdoor activities for our students! Mostly, I'm excited that you will be engaging in conversations about your child's growth. As we enter the last trimester of this school year you should have been contacted by your child's teacher to set up a parent/teacher conference. This is an important element in our work to support your child here at Walton School. If you have not yet signed up to conference about your child's academic progress please reach out to the school and we can help you with this.


As always, please reach out to connect if you have questions, comments, concerns or celebrations. We are here for you and your family.


Sincerely,

Michael Davis, Principal

Walton School Vision 2021-2022

At Walton School we :

Work together to do our best to be

Leaders in a

Safe and respectful community.


We are the Walton Owls!

Once we are back to 100% bussing we will go back to our normal walker dismissal at 2:55 and busses at 3:00.


Please call the office to inform us if there are changes to your child's end of day routine. For example, if they are going to be a walker vs being a car pick up vs taking the bus home let the office know. Sometimes students know their end of day routine but do not always tell their teacher or the office. Thank you for your help with this.
