Each day the halls and classrooms at Warren-Walker Middle School buzz with excitement from the myriad of activities and events happening. This month is no different.
By all measures, the independent and private school conference, "Shaping the Future", that all of our faculty, administration, and staff attended on Monday, was remarkable. I am proud to say that Warren-Walker School played a large role in its success, with several of us hosting workshops and chairing organizational committees. Such an event provides important opportunities for professional growth and development, which are key to the success of a School and the program it provides to the students it serves.
On March 5th, our Warren-Walker families showed their community spirit by supporting our "Helping the Homeless" program which provide healthy lunches for the homeless. Our La Mesa Lower School community made over 200 bags to provide to PATH, an organization that assists the homeless. The Director at PATH stated "One of the veterans said he took his lunch to work today. It reminded him of having a home to make a lunch in and it really made his day!"
All 3rd-5th graders are encouraged and invited to attend our Morning of Mindstorms. The early morning sessions provide an opportunity to further explore the world of robotics and hone in on programming skills. No sign-up or experience is necessary and all are welcome. Students should meet in the science room
This weekend is a great opportunity to do something for the environment and fulfill some of the required 8 hours of community service too!
