Dear Walnut Hill Families and Friends:

Hello and welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  I am proud and honored to serve a third year as the Principal at Walnut Hill Elementary. 

As the Principal of Walnut Hill Elementary, my goal is to build positive and meaningful relationships with all students, families, and staff members.  I believe these relationships will help spur unlimited possibilities for all students.  I look forward to the opportunity to continue working with you and your student(s) to provide a supportive, dynamic, and safe learning environment that fosters high academic achievement and promotes the belief that all students can learn and be successful. 

One of the most important characteristics of an effective school is building a strong home-school relationship. As a staff, we hope to provide a variety of opportunities to help us connect with you and your family. 


I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you.  I value your input so please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Rocky Parkert

Principal

HAPPENINGS

BOXTOPS for Education

             

There are many products that carry the for Box Tops for Education logo.  Boxtops are a great way for Walnut Hill to raise funds by simply collecting these labels.  We earn 10 cents for every label we collect, and this goes to support additional activities for Walnut Hill students and families. 

Make it a family mission to be on the look out for Box Tops.  Clip them and send to school with your child.  You can also visit http://www.boxtops4education.com/earn/clip/Brands.aspx for lists of products that carry the Box Tops for Education label.  We appreciate your support. You can contact Mrs. Bentley if you have any questions about this fundraiser.
