Walker Elementary State Report Card Review
October 18, 2019
The current scores are based on the State Assessment. It is also based on all students’ attendance for the school year 2018-2019.
Words cannot convey how proud we are of Walker Elementary’s faculty and staff. They have worked tirelessly in learning and implementing the most effective instructional strategies. Our teachers and staff have set high expectations for our children and our children have met the challenge.
Our parents have worked alongside of our teachers proving that working together moves everyone forward. Our parents also encourage a strong work ethic in their children. Our children have truly shown what RAMS are by showing their teachers, peers, and all others Respect; by being Accountable by being trustworthy and owning their words and actions; by showing Motivation in seeing what needs to be done and doing it and by showing Self-Control in choosing to do what they should even when they don’t want to.
In order to continue this upward trend, our faculty and staff will persist in deepening our content knowledge, pursuing the most effective instructional strategies and maintaining the highest of expectations. We are confident that our parents, children and community will continue their support in our endeavors.

Thank you to Senator Greg Reed and Representative Kyle South for meeting with all of our area administrators today, listening to any concerns that they wanted to share, and financially supporting our schools. Our legislators are not just telling us they want to help; they are putting their words into action!
Take 10 for Public Education
The Alabama State Department of Education is conducting a statewide survey concerning some of the perceptions on public education in the state – and we need YOUR help. From Tuesday, September 10, 2019, until Thursday, October 10, 2019, we will embark upon the TAKE 10 FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION survey; an attempt to capture the opinions of a broad spectrum of Alabamians.
Please, on behalf of the ALSDE, take a few minutes to participate in the TAKE 10 FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION survey. The survey may only take 10 minutes to complete, but the impact on the department’s Strategic Plan will resonate for years to come.

Attention 5th Grade Parents: We will be having a Camp McDowell meeting for interested parents and students on Monday, September 16 at 6:00PM. Please make plans to attend.
Walker is proud to be named a Biecentennial School of Excellance. Special thanks to Mrs. McCown for her efforts in making this possible and constructing the beautiful garden.
TCSS Introduces Anonymous Alerts Communications Tool
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure can act as a barrier to a student reporting this type of activity. Anonymous Alerts is a way to remove that barrier, by allowing a student to report without revealing their identity.
A big Walker thanks goes out to Stan Acker and our County Commission. Walker was awarded a $5,000 grant to continue our playground renovation. This grant will be combined with the 2018-2019 Ram Run contributions to provide a safe and fun playground environment for our students. The check was presented to Mrs. Johnson and the school at the Title I meeting on August 27. Thank you again, Mr. Acker and the Tuscaloosa County Commission for your continued support!
