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.

New Athletic Registration Online

We are excited to announce that we are now offering the convenience of on-line registration through FamilyID for all of our athletic programs. FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for athletic programs. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple athletic programs. This program is also used by all high schools in the Salem Keizer School District. All of the information that you enter in your family profile will be accessible when registering for any high school sports in the future.

Registration for SPRING TRACK AND FIELD is now open. Please read through the instructions attached and begin your student’s registration soon. If you have any questions regarding the process, please feel free to call the Walker Main Office.

Walker Music Booster Fundraiser

If you have refundable bottles and cans piling up in your garage and don’t like standing in line at the Bottle Drop place to redeem them, then this fundraiser is for you. 

You can pick up a blue Bottle Drop Bag in Walker’s main office or get one from the Music  Boosters.  All you need to do is fill the bag with bottle and cans, then drop it off at any of the Bottle Drop locations and they will count them and credit the Music Booster account.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Anna at 503.542.2938.

Every Day 24J

Salem-Keizer School District has launched a new attendance campaign called, Every Day 24J. It is our desire to improve the overall daily student attendance at Walker and in our district. For that reason, I want to take a moment to urge you to closely monitor your child’s attendance this school year. Many parents do not realize the cumulative nature of absences. Unfortunately, we have many students with chronic attendance issues. For your information, the average student in the district would be absent about one to one-and-a-half days per month.

Please review the upcoming calendar of events. I would like to invite you to join us for our Back-to-School Night, Thursday, August 30th, 5:45-7:30. Students will receive draft schedules and their locker information during our Back-to-School Night. This will be an informal style of Open House where parents and students can meet their new teachers. Please remember that we will not be changing student schedules that evening or during the first week of school, which is a practice common to our middle schools.

Please review the following information regarding the schedule change process:

Schedule changes are a multi-step process that require the following:

  1. Student discussed wanting the change with classroom teacher and parents.
  2. Student contacts their assigned counselor and submits a written schedule change request (forms are located in the Student Center).
  3. Note: If the class to be changed is out of AVID, Band, Choir, Orchestra, Dual Language, or Spanish, it is a requirement that parents converse with teachers before removal is considered.

Appropriate requests for schedule changes include: hole in schedule or duplicate class (need 7 classes), missing a required class, wish to add/drop foreign language or music, or a level change is needed. 

Inappropriate requests include: student wants to be with friends, student wants to be in a different lunch period, student has changed mind about elective choice, or student doesn’t like the teacher.

We look forward to this upcoming school year and look forward to seeing you very soon!

 

Sincerely,

Paul Myers

Principal
