Dear Walker Park Elementary Parents and Community,
As principal of Walker Park Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year. We are ecstatic to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of our Walker Park family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to become college and career ready students as they matriculate each grade level. At Walker Park, we have skilled teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to establish goals for growth and improvement. We believe that all of our students should be prepared to compete in a global society and meet demands of becoming productive citizens.
We are fortunate to be able to continue to provide students with the latest technological resources. For example, our district has provided our school with an additional 73 Chromebooks for student use in the classroom. Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all facets of our Walker Park Elementary School programs.
Please know that we highly value home/school communication at Walker Park Elementary which is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if /when the need arises, and stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities as well as other events.
We hope that you find our newly designed website helpful and informative. Our website will be continually updated with events throughout the school year.
Again, we welcome you to the “Park” and to our wonderful learning community... a place alive with much energy…enthusiasm… and high standards of excellence!
S. Royal, Ed.D.
