Walnut Elementary

Principal's Message



It is an honor to be a part of the Walnut Elementary School community. Walnut School is a place where students succeed at high levels and where families are involved. It provides a perfect setting for children to grow and bloom. Our goal is to serve and nurture all of our students.. We are committed to making every year an exceptional experience for all students. Our focus is to ensure that our students receive the best instruction from an action oriented team of teachers.

Your child's elementary school years are a special time in his or her life. During this time children undergo important developmental changes. It is also a time when children become more autonomous and they transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." It is my belief that parents are the first teachers of their children and they play a central role in their child's education. I invite you to participate in open, honest and continuous communication with your child's teachers to ensure a successful home-school partnership. I encourage you to tell our teachers about your child's needs throughout the year so that he or she has "THE BEST" educational experience.

As principal, it is important for me that my staff, parents and students become partners in this journey that we have embarked upon. It is essential that all of us come to school every day happy and ready give it our best. A positive attitude will enable us to become problem solvers in a positive nurturing school environment. Thank you in advance for supporting your child's success at school in the classroom.
