From the Desk of the Principal
I would like to thank PTO Presidents Dana Martin and Angela Ordway for their leadership and championing a wonderful start to the school year for Walker. The Walker Fest provided our community time to connect with each other, celebrate Walker, and support our school programming with exciting enrichments. And thanks to you, we exceeded our fundraising goal! Read on to learn more about our plans to enhance our Walker School experience.
As the first trimester has ended, I hope you all found the recent parent-teacher conferences valuable in the continuing partnership to help your child learn and grow at Walker School. I am proud of our students, staff, and parents for working hard together to make Walker a great school community!
We’re Exemplary (Again)! You may have seen the district communication recently that identified Walker as receiving an “Exemplary” designation on the most recent Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) state report card. That means Walker performed in the top 10% of schools across the state based on 2018-2019 data. This is the second year Walker has received such designation (since these state designations began last year). Much of our school improvement work is focused on reaching all of our students and sustaining our success while continuing to grow in our professional practices. Please read on for more information about our school improvement focus areas for this year.
