Our children are excited to learn Walnut Grove's new school rules!!

The administrators and teachers are being proactive in their approach by teaching our students the expectations of our new school rules and supporting them to reach those expectations.

How can we develop a partnership between home and school that encourages our
Road Runner Rules (also know as our 3 Rs)?

Help to build that common language that helps our kids to do the best they can!
Talk with your child about the 3 R's (Responsible, Respectful, Ready to Learn) and ask your child
"What did Mr. Connor or Ms. Cutter teach you about the Roadrunner Rules?" and
"What does being Responsible, Respectful and Ready to Learn look like at home?
"
They did a lesson in each class and should be excited to tell you all about it!

We want to positively reinforce the 3 R's, especially over the next few weeks as students are learning them.

We need this Common Language of the 3 R's so the home and school can work as a team to help our kids learn positive behavior. This will have a great impact on our students' social, emotional and academic development.

Thank you for being our partners in this endeavor!

Kyle Dine's Food Allergy Assembly

On February 10, Kyle Dine presented a Food Allergy assembly to all grades at Walnut Grove.  

Students learned about food allergies as well as how to interact with peers who have food allergies in a positive and helpful manner.  This assembly was funded by the WG PTA!  Ask your child about the assembly, as well as these fun photos of Kyle's assembly assistants!  

Learn more about food allergies on Kyle's website in the "resource" tab at http://www.kyledine.com/
