Track and Field for Grades 4 - 8

We had our Track and Field Day on Friday for Grade 4-8 students. We had the perfect day for this outdoor event. Congratulations to all the participants and to the winners of each event. Thanks to the staff for making it all happen. We had a call from a neighbor who watched from their deck and said our students were awesome and respectful. That makes us super proud! Those students moving on to the big event at Douglas Park will be notifed early next week. A letter will be sent home asking for parent permission to attend. We are also asking that committment be made to attend if you are chosen so that our school is well represented in each event.

 

This Week at Walker

Students have a short week ahead - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday ONLY. On Thursday, our staff will be grading assessments and attending staff meetings. Both Friday, May 20 and Monday, May 23 are holidays for everyone.

Students are focused on showing us their best work on the reading and comprehension assessments this week. Numeracy assessments are also in progress.

Our great caretaker, Mr. Hurford has spent some time on the playground creating Four Squares and Hopscotch lines. The students are really enjoying the new recess activities - including how to be patient for your turn and how to play respectfully.

Residents at Pioneer Village were at our school this past Wednesday afternoon. They heard some Walker students read to them. It was wonderful to have visitors in the building. They will be coming several times yet in May if the unit stays healthly. 

Watch for our new floral beds this week! Grade 1 students are going to make our front yard more beautiful!

Exciting News... Mr. Bzdel and his grade 6, 7 and 8 classes produced a major joint art product that has won a spot in a publication titled "Celebrating Art".  This is a high quality coffee table book and we are so proud of our senior students' efforts on this project... see the picture below!

Kindergarten Registration - Don’t forget to let any friends or neighbours know that if they have a child who will be 5 before December 31, 2016, it is time to register their child for Kindergarten for the fall.  They can pick up a registration kit and complete it at their earliest convenience.  It is never too soon to think about Kindergarten registration!  We have a great Kindergarten and look forward to having your child attend Kindergarten at Walker School. 

 

We also have a Pre-Kindergarten.  If your child is 3 or 4 by August 31, 2016, lives in the area and is toilet trained, come by to pick up an application for our Pre-K!  There are limited spaces available and the class is selected in September.
