After School Opportunities

As of December 20, 2019, Salem-Keizer Education Foundation (SKEF) will no longer be operating the after-school program (Enrichment Academy) at Walker Middle School. We will continue with our current classes which will end December 19.

After-school Homework Help will still be offered Wednesday through Friday from 3:00-3:45pm in room 100.

As an alternative, we encourage all of our families to consider enrolling your student in the Boys & Girls Club which is located right next door to Walker Middle School. The club is open from 2:45-6:45pm on school days. Students receive a free meal and tutoring (homework help) as part of their daily programming. Director, Alyssa Springstead, would be happy to connect with you regarding the different activities and offerings available to all students after-school and during non-school days. Applications are located online http://bgc-salem.org or in Walker’s Main Office. The annual fee is a very reasonable $5.00 dollars. Please reach out if you have further questions!

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 from the Music Department.  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.

We want to know what you think!

You will be able to take the survey on any device with internet access, i.e. smart phones, tablets, laptops. Simply click on the survey link, select [School Name] from the drop-down menu and you’ll be ready to go. This important survey will take 10-15 minutes.

Welcome Back Parents!! We’re so excited to kick off the Walker Wildcat school year with our first Parent Club meeting on Mon, Sept 9, 6PM in the Walker Library. For those attending we will:
– Have a raffle for a tattoo gift card – just our way of saying Thank You for attending – generously donated by Becca Nushell Tattoo Artist
– Agenda includes – Walker story, monies we have to spend, and our calendar year of supporting our teachers

We’ll also be hosting a Hollywood Dance Party for Walker students on Fri, Sept 27, 6:00-7:30PM. All funds from the dance go back to supporting our teachers. How fun is that? We’ll email more details soon. In the meantime, let us know if you want to help serve food, check kiddos in for the dance or if you love decorating – Hollywood Style. Salem Electric is donating cool shades, we’ll have paparazzi and we’ve gotten several donations around the community to raffle off gift cards at the dance that the kids can win – think Dairy Queen ice cream certificates. Mmmmm! Contact us – we would love to get to know you. Welcome back!
