Parent-Teacher Conference Potluck: Oct. 22 & 23

We like to treat our teachers whenever we can and we want to keep them fed during conferences! We’re setting up snack potlucks for them on Oct. 22nd & 23rd. If you’d like to bring in an item (or more) click on the sign-up links below:

Please remember that most teachers will be grabbing food to take back to their classrooms. Individual bags/servings are preferred! *Also note that many of our classrooms are nut-free due to student allergies so please try and keep your donations nut-free.*

Some teachers start conferences immediately after dismissal so please have all donations to the school by 2:30pm. Feel free to drop your donation in the office that morning or text Erin (773-848-2323) if you need to make alternative drop-off arrangements. Thank you!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00pm-7:00pm during Parent/Teacher conferences. It will be held in the main hallway in the front of the school by the office. Funds raised from the fair will go towards buying books & literacy initiatives at Walker. All students will have an opportunity to select books for their wish lists with their teacher on Monday during a special preview for their class. Please stop by the Welcome Table before you shop the fair and volunteers can provide you with your child’s wish list. Parents will also have the opportunity to purchase a book from any teacher’s wish list to donate to that classroom, please see a volunteer for assistance.

New! eWallet: Can’t make it to the Book Fair, set up an account online with a set dollar amount that your child can use to purchase books. see below flyer for more information. Great idea for grandparents and loved ones who want to support your reader!
