Family Update

Dear Families,

Happy Winter break!  Thank you all for helping to make this week a fun one!  Please check out our Facebook page and Instagram to see pictures.  We received a very large donation of gloves and were able to send each Superstar home with a pair!  Thank you for your generous donations of toiletries to donate to the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center.  Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.  I hope you enjoy the winter break with your families.  For those who celebrate, Happy Holidays!  Schools will reopen for all students on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.   

If you haven’t started shopping yet, the HPS OT and PT department has compiled a list of many great gifts for students that help to develop skills. Here is a list of ideas from our Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists.     Gift Ideas Spanish 

A fun family event that is also a fundraiser for the Walnut Square PTO is the Holiday Light Drive Thru Show!  How does it work? Use the included link, choose the date that WORKS BEST FOR YOU ( Now- December 30th), get your hot cocoa ready and let the holiday lights make your spirits bright! $2 per car will be donated the Walnut Square PTO.   Visit https://bit.Ly/3guyYly today to buy your tickets!  

When students return to school, please remember to pack a water bottle to use at the water bottle filling station.  

For our multilingual learners, we will begin ACCESS testing on Thursday, January 5th and plan to end on Friday, January 13th.   The ACCESS test is given each year to test English Language abilities in listening, speaking, reading and writing.  More information will be sent home by Ms. Jennifer Edwards.

As with all family updates, this will be posted on our school website, and sent to you via School Messenger and Remind.  In addition to the Walnut Square School website, you can also “like” our Facebook page, Walnut Square Elementary School, and follow us on Instragram @walnutsquaresuperstars to get updates and see all of the fun and learning taking place at Walnut Square!   Please contact me if you have any questions.  Thank you!
