Dear Walnut Springs Families,
Our Walnut Springs Students celebrated our veterans on November 11th in multiple ways. We were proud to host Mr. Link, a World War II Veteran and Officer Swingle, a current Marine, who spoke to many of our classes about their experiences of service. Students asked thoughtful questions throughout their presentations. Furthermore, during our seminar class period, students reflected on their family and friends who have served and honored them by writing their name(s) on yellow ribbons. These ribbons were constructed into a Thank You Banner that is surrounded by 7th grade artwork of the different branches of service.
The WSMS Otis Spunkmeyer sale was a HUGE success this year, raising approximately $11,000 for our school! Last Friday students who were top sellers participated in drawings for Sky Zone, Marcus Theater Tickets, Cash Rewards, and spun the money wheel. We had tons of fun celebrating our sale; but no more than those top 16 sellers who also got to smear pies in the face of Mr. C and I.
Finally, I will sign off by welcoming our multiple long term substitutes that are filling in for our staff members on maternity leave. Please welcome Mr. Supe (for Mrs. Swingle), Ms. Essig (for Mrs. Harris), Ms. Tan-Lerner (for Mrs. Hughes) and Mrs. Martin (for Mrs. Smalley). Filling in for me is Mr. Barry Ackerman, former WCS administrator. I will miss you all as I am on maternity leave, but will be back before we know it at the end of February.
Mrs. Becca Yanni
