Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We had a great first week and I am happy to report that our kindergarten students had a fantastic first day today!
I am looking forward to welcoming and getting to know our new and returning students and their families. I’m trying my best to learn all of our students’ and families’ names and faces. Please help me out by introducing yourself when you see me at school!
Walker is very lucky to have several new staff members this year. Leilani Alvord is our new kindergarten teacher, Kim Krykew is our new 1st grade teacher, and David Schirner is joining us in 2nd grade. Alexi McCullough was our math intervention specialist last year and this year she is teaching 2nd grade. Emily Jeffs is our new music teacher, and Angela Johnson will be teaching p.e. with some of our kindergarten and first grade students. Michelle Cureño, Regina Mannino, and Buffee Holden are all new educational assistants, working with students in classrooms and during recess, and Julie Grantham is our new educational assistant in the library. We are all excited to continue to build a strong and successful team here at Walker.
I hope new and returning families will take advantage of the many opportunities to volunteer and get involved in our school and classrooms this year. Events are a great way to learn about opportunities to get involved and to connect with members of our Walker community. We look forward to seeing you this year!
