Family Math Night
Thursday, November 1, 2018.
Where: Walnut Square School
Each classroom on the first floor will present a different math activity for families to do together. Each activity will last approximately 20 minutes. In order for everyone to rotate through all the math activities and have a chance to go downstairs to the snack and estimation stations, it is important that we start right away. Please try to arrive promptly at 5:00 when the fun will begin.
The Scholastic Book Fair will also be open at this time off!
Message from the Principal
October 2, 2018
Dear Walnut Square School Families,
We hope that the school year is off to a great start for you and your family. I’m proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners. Our school goal is to create an educational partnership with you and your child that will foster a passion for learning. The school team is committed to providing a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure your child’s academic success. It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. We will send home newsletters and post announcements on the school web page.
September 2018 was “Attendance Awareness Month” and the classroom with the best attendance was Room 2, Mrs. Caruso’s kindergarten class. Room 2 will receive breakfast with their family at school on Thursday morning to celebrate great attendance for the month of September. Attending school every day is a powerful way to prepare students for success – both in school and in life. Congratulations Room 2!
