Walker Middle School
Due to inclement weather, Salem-Keizer students have missed four full school days, had one early release and one late start this school year.
Time at school is essential to student success. To make up for some lost instructional time, the district has decided to make changes to the school calendar.
Three school days have been added to the calendar:
- Thursday, March 23, 2017, will be a school day for all students. Parent-Teacher conferences will take place after school and in the evening.
- Thursday and Friday, June 15 and 16, 2017, will be school days for all students except graduating seniors. High schools will develop a revised schedule for second semester finals.
Dates of high school graduation ceremonies will not change.
Please be aware that additional calendar changes could be made if there is more inclement weather.
We are off to a great start this year! On a personal note, I have been getting to know our teachers, students, and parents as well as some of Walker’s community partners and I am truly impressed. Walker Middle School’s Improvement Plan includes a vision of “engaging all students to reach their highest potential in reading, writing and problem solving.” We are also committed to ensuring that our students experience the joy of learning by offering a wide range of courses and opportunities to continue their learning beyond the school day and to be part of the Walker team. We need your help. At our most recent parent club meeting, we gathered some input from the families in attendance. The big question is, “How can we work together to benefit our students?”. We have some parents who are interested in being part of parent club, but we need more! Many hands make a light load.
One way you can help is to let us know what is going well and where our opportunities for growth are. Please take a few minutes to complete the 4 question google survey (link below).
Thank you for all that you do for the Walker family.
