Family Update

Dear Families,

This is our last full week of school!  We have many activities planned as we complete assessments and celebrate growth and learning!  We have many updates for families to know this week:  

  • The PTO purchased t-shirts for all students to wear on Field Day scheduled for Thursday, June 9th.  They will be passed out to students this week.  
  • Book checkouts at the Walnut Square Library have stopped.  We are collecting all books so they can be shelved.  Please return all Walnut Square books to the library.  Your help and support with this is greatly appreciated.  
  • Second grade students will take their chromebooks home with them this summer.
  • Summer Reading Lists:
  • There will be a grade 2 promotion ceremony scheduled for Monday, June 13th at 9:30 am, and students will enjoy a luau in the afternoon.  The rain date is Tuesday, June 14th.  Families are invited to the ceremony at 9:30 am.  We will have folding chairs set up, but please feel free to bring your own lawn chairs as we may not have enough chairs for everyone.  
  • As we prepare for next year, please let us know if your family is moving.  This will help us prepare the necessary paperwork to help you register your child at a new school.
  • Parent Pick Up:  Thank you for parking on the North Ave. side of the side.  The Main St. side has been open to the buses, and the traffic was safe.  Your support is appreciated!

As the year winds down, there are many end of year events planned, and all are included in the “Mark Your Calendar” section below.  For the last 26 days of school, Walnut Square has an Alphabet Calendar Countdown!  

HPS Registration is OPEN!  Kindergarten Registration for 2022-2023 opened on February 1st and families are welcome to begin completing the registration applications for enrollment.
