Family Update

Dear Families,

Thank you to all the families who attended the Title 1 Fall Nature Walk Around Lake Pentucket on Wednesday, October 18th!  It was a great time!  I will be making a slide show video to share…stay tuned!

We have another busy week coming up next week- the PTO Corn Maze has been rescheduled to Wednesday, and both PTO and Site Council meetings are rescheduled to Wednesday, November 1st.  They are both held on a Google Meet and agendas will be available on the Walnut Square website.  There is an early release day for students on Wednesday, October 25th- dismissal is 11:35 am.  Thursday is Parent/Teacher Conferences from 4:00-5:30, and a notice went home this week for families to schedule a time to meet.  On Friday, October, 27th, Walnut Square will be celebrating National Pumpkin Day! we will be having a pumpkin parade at 2:40 pm to celebrate National Pumpkin Day!  Students are encouraged to wear orange, other fall colors, or a costume.  A notice about dismissal went home with students this week.  Please return the notice to school so we have a safe and organized dismissal.  We appreciate your help with this!  

I would also like to share the link to complete the Fall Family Feedback Survey:  This survey is shared with staff, Site Council, and PTO, and your feedback is important!

Thank you to all who have donated to “Sock”tober!   Walnut Square is partnering with Veterans Northeast Outreach Center to provide new packages of socks and toiletries to veterans.  From October 1-31st, Walnut Square is collecting the following items:

Thank you for your help and support in partnering with this amazing community organization!  

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, follow us on Instragram, @walnutsquaresuperstars, and/or follow my channel on YouTube, @jenrubera, 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!
