Walnut Park Tigers Roar into the Future
These are historical times in education. We are redefining how we will provide the skills and abilities our children will need to be successful in their future. Walnut Park Elementary School is preparing our children to be college and career ready.
The school community of Walnut Park Elementary is just beginning the adventure of this new era in education but we are doing it together and with one goal in mind for our children. We are opening doors to possibilities for them by giving them the foundation upon which they can build their future learning. Teachers are implementing ways to develop 21st Century Skills (collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity) into every lesson so our children can solve problems and create new solutions by working with others. Children are mastering Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which establish a new emphasis on deeper learning and understanding of basic skills. Parents are learning about the new expectations and how they can support their child at home and be involved with the learning at school.
Our school chant captures our united focus as we move into the future.
We are tigers hear our roar.
We are here to open doors.
Our future is ours to earn
as day by day we come to learn
skills in reading, writing, math.
We are on the college path.
We are tigers hear our roars!

School attendance is vital to students' achievement. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially. Attendance Matters! When students attend school they get better grades, and score better on standardized test. It is our responsibility to teach students the importance of attendance now so they are prepared for the future. Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that their children attend school daily. When parents are at work, students should be safe at school.
