Principal's Message

Dear Walnut Grove Families,

Please mark your calendar for our PTA Literacy Night Monday, October 15th at 6:30pm. We will have information sessions on helping your student with reading and writing. We will also have a session on the new Common Core Curriculum adopted by Georgia and 48 other states. We will have activities for the students so you don’t have to worry about childcare. We will be sending out a flyer with all the details. Hope to see you there.

Our students in grades 1st – 5th are in the process of taking Gwinnett County interim tests. These tests provide diagnostic information for teachers as they plan their instruction. This year the interims are “field tests” and students will not receive a grade on the test. The information gained from the test is very valuable to teachers. The type of test questions has also changed and is more rigorous and more complex. These interims give our students experience with these types of questions.

Congratulations to Erica Leach, Walnut Grove’s Math Specials Teacher, our Teacher of the Year. Ms. Leach has been selected as one of the 25 semi-finalists for Gwinnett County’s Teacher of the Year!

Stephanie Cortellino

Principal
