Choose Walker because we are truly dedicated: Walker School is one big family and we dedicate ourselves to every child for life! We're not saying that our students *have* to go to the University of Arizona, but we might try to influence them just a little. :)
Choose Walker because we have experience: The majority of our staff has been teaching together for quite a long time now! That's a lot of experience and teamwork right there, and we do pretty much everything together. This photo is from one of our Book Character Days where the students and staff dress up as their favorite story book characters.
Choose Walker because we are dedicated to educational excellence: In 2013, former principal, Mr. Michael McConnell, led Lulu Walker Elementary School in celebrating 50 years of excellence. Mrs. Evelyn Carswell-Bing. Walker's first principal in 1963, demonstrated her lifetime commitment to educational excellence by joining us for our ceremony!
Choose Walker because we are the #1 Science School: What's that? We're the TOP SCIENCE SCHOOL in all of Southern Arizona? That's right! We won even more trophies than this, but we couldn't manage to wrangle everyone together for the photo after the huge Southern Arizona ceremony at the Tucson Convention Center. A big shout-out to Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Cordell for their leadership in science! We love science!
Choose Walker because our arts program is amazing: Our arts program has a wide variety of fantastic productions! Band, Orchestra, Chorus, Talent Show, Artist's Studio, 4th Grade Pit Fire, history shows, just to name a few! In 2013, we even did a teachers' production of The Grinch! We teachers had a blast and the students loved it!
Choose Walker because we are a kind school: We focus a lot on acts of kindness throughout the school day, at home, and in the community! The kindergartners sang ~and signed~ a song about kindness for one of our kindness rallies. Tucson's Mayor Rothschild came to Walker to congratulate us that day on our leadership in the hugely successful Tucson Be Kind Challenge.
This is our beautiful Be Kind mural, but it's the kindness in the words and actions of our children and staff that really stand out.
In the end, of course, it's all about the kids and their joy of learning.
Walker's kind kids melt our hearts!
