Good Morning Walnut Ridge Family,

On this day — May 8, 2018, let me begin by saying

 

“HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY” 

to all of our wonderful teachers. We have a fabulous school here at Walnut Ridge and it is because of the work of the teachers, with the help of the aides and rest of the staff. Please find a moment this week to thank you child(ren)’s teacher for all they do each and every day!
