Schoolwide Testing Starts Monday, January 30th

Students will be on a schoolwide testing schedule starting next Monday, January 30.  All students will be taking the diagnostic reading and math i-Ready assessments in their advisory class periods at the start of each school day.  We anticipate that this may take students about 5 days to complete in Advisory Classes.  This testing schedule will allow teachers to continue teaching content in Language Arts and Math classes.

Please be sure your child gets a healthy breakfast each morning and that they get some good sleep each night.  We offer breakfast items (free) for students before school when the doors open at 8:45am.

We will follow the same schedule later in the spring when students complete their state testing requirements in reading, math and science.  (Science test is 8th grade, only)

It is fundraising time at Walker Middle School to help pay for valuable student programs that help student achievement and make Walker Middle School a great place to be.  Our philosophy is that by directly asking families for donations, our students won’t be involved in multiple fundraisers so they can focus on learning, staying involved in school activities and enjoying being a Walker Wildcat.

At Walker we provide students with rewards for good attendance and responsible actions at school with fun activities such as:

  • ROAR Store-Students receive tickets from teachers to spend at our “ROAR Store” for things such as candy, chips and fun items.
  • Breakfast of Champions-Students nominated by staff are selected monthly to be invited to have donuts with Administrative Staff.
  • No Tardy Party-Students with no tardies during each grading period receive tickets to have ice cream during their lunch periods.
  • Monthly Drawings-ROAR tickets received by students are added to a drawing for fun items monthly and one large item drawing at the end of the school year.

Incentives for students are funded solely by donations from families and/or business partners and we are depending on you for your help.  If you are a parent and wish to donate, you may donate at the school or on student payment portal at by signing in to your student account and selecting “Shop Items At Student’s School-Donations”.

If you are involved in a business interested in becoming a Business Partner with Walker, please contact the school.

We are also reaching out to families interested in being involved in Parent Club or volunteering in the school. Our Parent Club became inactive during distance learning and we would welcome a new set of families to start again. If you are interested in being involved at Walker, please complete the attached survey to let us know.



Thank you for your support!

What school supplies should I look for this summer?

  • A sturdy back pack, but small enough to fit into a locker, a refillable water bottle, and a few sets of inexpensive wired earbuds to use with a chromebook throughout the year.
  • School supplies to get you started would be several #2 pencils, several black or blue pens, highlighters ( at least 2 colors), 6 or more college ruled spirals, 1-2 1/4” graph paper spirals (spirals and graph spirals are available to purchase at the school throughout the year), 1-2 composition books, a set of colored pencils and a pencil pouch. Other items may be required by teachers, depending on your students classes.

  • Students will be required to dress down for PE in Walker PE uniform consisting of a green t-shirt and black shorts or leggings. Students will need to purchase PE shirts from the school. These will be available online beginning August 1st or from the school office during the school year. Shorts are also available for purchase. Students will need to bring athletic shoes (no sandals, flip flops, heels or boots allowed in gym) and extra pair of socks. PE lockers are assigned to store items left during the week, but clothing should be taken home to wash weekly.
