Join the Mom and Dad Squad

Mom and Dad squad is a group of adults who volunteer during our two lunch periods. You do not even have to be a mom or dad of a Walker student to join. Members can volunteer as often as they would like. You will have the unique opportunity to interact with students in a positive manner while helping to maintain a caring adult presence at Walker. If you would be able to give an hour one day or more a week at lunch time we would invite to you contact the Walker office to learn more about this opportunity.

7 PERIOD DAY

The attached document will give you information on the 7 period day changes happening at the middle school level for all Salem-Keizer schools.

October Note from the Principal

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.

 

New Online Payment Portal

This fall, parents of Salem-Keizer students have a new, convenient option for paying student fees.

Through the Online Payment Portal, parents can use a credit card to pay athletic fees, library book fees, purchase ASB cards, make a donation, and take care of other payment transactions. The Online Payment portal processing fee is the same as the fee charged when making a credit card payment in the school office (2.75 percent).

The Online Payment Portal does not replace the food service payment system, EZSchoolPay.

Find a link to the Online Payment Portal on our school website, or visit https://skpay.salkeiz.k12.or.us.
