WELCOME BACK WOLVES!!
Dear Walnut Springs Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Walnut Springs Middle School! We are all very excited about the promise of a new year, and are busy preparing for our students' return. We encourage you to watch for our back to school mailer, as well as a notice from HR Imaging for school pictures; both have important information about upcoming events. Changes have been made to electronically complete back to school paperwork on PowerSchool and directions for you are included in that mailing.
We look forward to meeting our new families and welcoming back our returning families at Schedule Pick Up. August 10th: 6th grade only- 3:00 - 6:30 pmSchedule Pick Up, followed by Orientation at 6:30pm and a Hot Dog Cook Out. August 11th: 7th and 8th grade Schedule Pick Up - 1:00 - 3:00 pm or 5:00 - 7:00 pm.
While you are at Walnut Springs for Schedule Pick Up, please consider becoming a member of our Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). The PTSA graciously funds many projects, grants, programs, and supports numerous other student and staff activities throughout the year. We are very lucky to have such a strong and supportive PTSA and always strive to increase membership and volunteers.
Our first day back to school is Thursday, August 18th. Our school will celebrate and practice what it means to show PAWS during those few days and then continue to recognize students throughout the year for demonstrating PAWS. Being Positive Accountable Willing and Safe is a motto that it woven into our school culture.
Curriculum Night will be Tuesday, August 30th. This is an opportunity for parents/guardians to visit the school, meet the staff, walk your student's bell schedule, and hear about the curriculum shared during the school year.
We all are aware of the high expectations we set for our students- academically and socially within our Walnut community. We look forward to another impressive year at Walnut Springs. I am honored to be a part of this team. As always, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for sharing your children with us,
Mrs. Becca Yanni
