During the month of November, our teachers and students have been focusing on gratitude and giving thanks. If you have not noticed our showcase, please take the time to read what our 4th graders have written. It truly brings to mind all the things for which we have to be thankful. I would like to thank YOU, our families, for sharing your children with our Walls community. It is such a joy to work with each of them!
We are entering a VERY busy time of year. Below you will find some important announcements and updates, as well as a list of important dates.
Similar to last year, our staff and 5th grade ambassadors would like to announce our SCHOOLWIDE CANNED FOOD DRIVE. Here are the details:
- Canned food and non-perishable food items can be brought to your child’s classroom November 27-December 8
- There will be a class competition for the most canned foods collected, with the winning class receiving a special ice cream treat from Mrs. Singer
- Proceeds from the event directly benefit WALLS families in need for the holidays
Effective immediately BUSES ONLY will be allowed in the oval between 8:15 and 8:40 a.m. and 3:10 and-3:30 p.m. Should you arrive during these times, you MUST use the car drop-off/pick-up line on the side of the building.
Also, the lost and found has a mountain of coats and jackets. When you are here for your child’s conference on Monday or Tuesday (11/20-21), please take a look in the lost and found for any coats, jackets, hats, gloves, lunch boxes, etc. that you may be missing. They will be needing these items for recess during the colder months ahead.
As a final reminder, there will be NO SCHOOL on Tuesday, November 21, due to parent teacher conferences. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Please call the office if you have any questions.
