PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

 

 

Dear Walnut Hill Families and Friends:

Hello and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am proud and honored to serve a fourth 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
