Family Update


Dear Families,

We had an amazing Spirit Week here at Walnut Square!  Thank you all for you help and support!   There is a lot of time, effort, and planning in having a Spirit Week, and I’m so thankful to many!  Thank you, Families, for your donations and time helping your children.  Thank you to the PTO and Haverhill Promise for supporting our week of craftivities.  Thank you to Santa for stopping and giving each student a stuffed animal!  Thank you to the Walnut Square teachers and staff for planning, completing fun activities, and putting the “extra” in extraordinary for students this week!  I’m so grateful and appreciative of all you do to help our Superstars thrive!  I have posted many pics on our school Facebook page and Instagram page.  Enjoy!

I wish you all a healthy and happy winter break.  I look forward to see you all again when schools reopen on Tuesday, January 2nd.
