Looking Ahead:
April 5th-9th: Spring Break/School Closed
April 26th : Professional Development Day/No School for Students
April 30th: PS Field Day
 
Spring Break/WalkerConnect:
We hope that you have an amazing Spring Break and remember the three Ws: wear a mask over your nose and mouth, watch your distance – at least 6 feet from others – and wash your hands often.  If you are exposed to a COVID positive person over break or if you begin to display COVID symptoms, please email walkernurse@thewalkerschool.org as soon as possible.  Also note that it takes at least 24 hours to ensure a student is set up to utilize WalkerConnect - please email Dr. Tyson and your child's teacher should this need arise. We appreciate you taking steps to keep our community well! 

Community Read-Along for Kindergarten:
The Lower School is excited to announce the upcoming Amy Krouse Rosenthal Community Read-along and has extended an invitation to our Kindergarten students to join.  If your family would like to participate, you are invited to reserve your copies of the two student body-selected books for this event if interested. Order online before April 12!
 
2021 Auction Information: 
The auction team needs your help! Because we won't be able to list some of the items that we've had in the past, this year we will be trying something new with the annual auction. We will be offering themed gift baskets and are asking our amazing Walker families to donate items for these baskets. Please use this Amazon wish list to make a purchase to help complete our baskets. With your help and generosity, we can make this auction one of our best yet! We are requesting that items be sent directly to one of our auction co-chairs, Jennifer Slipakoff (the address should be one of the options that pre-populates when you check out but just in case it is 4055 Old Stilesboro Rd, NW Kennesaw, GA 30152). Please make your purchases by April 16th!
