We are delighted to share the success of our very first Ukrainian Student Union (USU) meeting, which took place on Tuesday at Walker Elementary School. It was a joyous occasion, marking the beginning of a special journey for our students. The USU is a safe space for students to connect, share their identities, and feel seen and heard. We were so pleased to see the enthusiastic participation and the smiles on the faces of our students as they engaged in various activities. A special thank you to Walker parent, Olha Dubova, for her dedication as the facilitator, and to Ms. Julie for coordinating the event and ensuring everything ran smoothly. We look forward to the continued growth of the USU and the positive impact it will have on our community. Thank you to all the families who support this initiative. Your involvement is crucial in building a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our students. Stay tuned for more updates on the USU and other affinity groups at Walker Elementary School.

This image shows a cheerful classroom setting where a group of children and an adult are seated around a table. Starting from the left, there's a young girl with long brown hair wearing a pink sweater, followed by another smiling girl with blonde hair in a grey "New York" T-shirt. Next to her is another girl in a purple top, and opposite to them, a young boy is seated, laughing, wearing a grey hoodie. At the end of the table, there’s a smiling adult woman with long blonde hair, wearing a grey sweatshirt, sitting next to a small girl with her back to the camera, wearing a grey dress. On the table, there are colorful pencils, papers, and snacks. The background features a blue wall with the welcoming words "WELCOME" and a quote by Albus Dumbledore on the smartboard saying, "It is our choices that show who we are, far more than our abilities." Below the smartboard, a display reads, "Ласкаво просимо Π£ΠΊΡ€Π°Ρ—Π½ΡΡŒΠΊΠ° студСнтка сім'я!" which translates to "Welcome Ukrainian Student Union!" in English.

We held our school OBOB tournament last Wednesday! We had 46 participants who competed in a total of 19 battles to determine our School Champion! Congratulations to the Wings of Fire for coming out on top of a competitive field! 5th graders Marley Winzig, Lilly Choi, Nenji Barrey, Zoe Washburn, and Jocelyn Bucy will go on to represent Walker at the OBOB Regional Tournament on March 9th. We are incredibly proud of all of our students who worked so hard throughout OBOB season this year. OBOB is a voluntary reading comprehension and enrichment program for 3rd-5th graders where the students read from a curated list of sixteen titles. They form teams and compete in a gameshow like format answering questions about all of the books. OBOB’s mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase comprehension and academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students. Congratulations and Good Luck to the Wings of Fire at Regionals! We are looking for family volunteers to coach teams next year. If you are interested in participating or just have questions about the program, please contact Ms. Julie at julie.odagrantham@ashland.k12.or.us.
