This Week...


I hope you all felt the love this week courtesy of our fabulous PTO and parents! As we learn of changes for next year, please remember every decision is in the best interest of Big Walnut students. Thank you all for being so understanding and flexible. Each and everyone of you is a respected and valued member of 'Team Big Walnut'.

Data Team meetings and PLC are slotted for next week. Room assignments for next year are tentative. I will be around to chat regarding potential moves.


  • Mental or paper notes regarding class placements
  • Data entered
  • Technology Inventory *time during PLC
  • Training Tests (bloodborne pathogens, etc...) *time during PLC
  • Submitted hours towards IPDC


Tried out coding? Here are some resources:

Looking for end-of-the-year literacy activities? (Including: Writing a letter to future students, museum walk with favorite books, and no prep activities!)

Thought about incorporating a listening station in your rotations?...Try this out: Best part? It's free! Tons of books. Each student can have their own profile based on interest. It even has student reviews to help in book selection!

Enjoy the weekend!
