Welcome Back to the 2015-16 School Year!

I would like to personally welcome all of you, students and families, to the new school year.  I have enjoyed seeing you through the summer in the community, at ball fields, on playgrounds etc… but nothing beats those smiling faces walking through the front door of Walls!  A special welcome to our new Walls faculty…

You will also notice some familiar faces in new places!  Welcome also to our newly enrolled students.  Have a great year! Go RIDERS!

Key Maker Award

Congratulations to the 2014-15 Key Maker Award winner.  The Key Maker Award is sponsored by the Parent Mentor Program.  It is meant to provide an opportunity for parents to recognize Kent City Schools’ personnel and volunteers that have played an important part in our student’s education.  The 2014-15 awardee at Walls Elementary School was Mary Rozum.  Congratulations and thank you for making a key to open the door to education to all the children you serve.

If it doesn’t open, they turn away.

Still others see a closed door, try the knob,

If it doesn’t open, they find a key,

If the key doesn’t fit, they turn away.

A rare few see a closed door, try the knob,

If it doesn’t open, they find a key,

If they key doesn’t fit,
