Dear St. Walter Family,
A few years ago, my daughter shared with me the message in her fortune cookie. It said, “Listen to your mother, for she is wise.” I, of course, agreed. My children thought it was funny. But the reality of it is that we, mothers, are wise. We guide our children gracefully through life, sharing their joys and sadness, helping them to achieve anything and everything they want to be. Going without so they can have, and loving them unconditionally. For all you do each and every day, thank you on behalf of your children. I hope you have a beautiful, relaxing Mother’s Day.
The staff and students have finished taking the 5 Essentials Survey. I encourage our parents to take some time to take the parent survey. I had emailed the link out to our families earlier this week. Your feedback is important as we look to the future to make changes that enhance the learning environment for our students and improve our school. A reminder note is also included in this week’s Yellow Folder.
We will be celebrating this Friday, May 10, as it is the Feast of St. Walter. Students will have a free Dress Down Day and should show off their school spirit. We will have an Urban Gateways Assembly featuring The Harmony of Korean Drumming & Dancing. This is sure to be a lively performance. We will also play All School Bingo which the students absolutely love. Plus a few more surprises. It’s sure to be a great day celebrating our AWESOME school and students!
Last Wednesday, the Queen of Hearts was revealed and a lucky winner won $6,500. We hope to begin the next Queen of Hearts board this weekend after the masses. The initial pot will start at $6,000. Who will find the Queen this time? Maybe, it could be you. More details in next week’s Yellow Folder.
Mrs. Sharon O’Toole, Principal
