Hello Walnut Ridge Family!

This will be my last post of the winter! Thank goodness that spring is here!! Here are a few important announcements.

1) Parent/Teacher Conferences

As you know, this week we will be having our Parent/Teacher Conferences! At this point you should already have signed up from a time and received confirmation from your child(ren)’s teacher of that time slot. Please plan to come early to your time slot so you can stop over to say “hi” to me at the Scholastic Book Fair.

2) Book Fair

Our last book during Parent/Teacher Conferences was a huge success! Hopefully this one will be just as fun! The times for the book fair will mirror the times for Parent/Teacher Conferences: Thursday, March 21 and Friday, March 22 (9am-12pm1pm-3pm, and 4pm-7pm).

3) Vernon Township Special Education Parent Support Group

Julie Rikon, from the Association of Special Children & Families will be holding a meeting for all district Special Education families on Thursday, March 22 at 7pm in the Walnut Ridge library. Any district parents are welcome to attend. For more information please see the link HERE.

4) Preschool and Kindergarten Registration

As you know, next week is an important week for registration. If you attend our school you do not need to attend registration. However, if you are a parent of a tuition paying student in our school you will need to contact Mrs. DiCarlo and pay your $50 deposit for next year if you have not already, in order to secure your spot. If any of your friends are registering children for Preschool or Kindergarten please let them know that registration is taking place at Cedar Mountain and the times are as follows: March 26 and 29 from 9:30 – 11:30 am, and March 27 and 28 from 4:30-7:30 pm. Also, there is no advantage to going to the first date. In fact, it may be so crowded on the first date that it could be advantageous for you and your family to attend one of the later dates.

5) Parking Update

A few of you have expressed a concern regarding parking availability at drop off and pick up times. I want you to know that I sent out information on Friday afternoon requesting that all district employees (with very few exceptions) park in the lot behind the trees and furthest from the building. This will leave nearly the entire front parking lot free to for parents and guardians to pick up and drop off their children. I hope this alleviates the parking problem. As always, please feel free to contact me by phone or email if you would like to speak about this or any other concern.

6) Online Payments are going live today!

If you are looking to make tuition payments or pay your $50 deposit for next year, these payments can be made online through Paypal or through a credit card. The payment page can be found under our “Walnut Ridge” Menu, or the “Parents” Menu on our website.  To make payments CLICK HERE

Thanks very much!
