Walker is truly a community-based school, made so by many wonderful people. Our students are eager to learn and to make a positive difference. Our staff members are committed to child-centered learning, and we work to make sure that every student has his/her needs met. Our parents and community members partner with us, and together we provide excellent learning opportunities for our students.
At Walker, we practice the “Fish Philosophy” (Strand, Christensen & Halper). The four components of this philosophy are: Make Someone’s Day, Choose Your Attitude, Be There/Be Present, and Play. Walker is a great place to learn and grow!
Each week, Walker School 2nd grade teachers Louise Perkowski and Sherri Lee host the Book Cook Club. Students read a story, or it is read to them, and they create a snack to enjoy together.
Students in District 181 have demonstrated exceptional creativity and generosity this school year with the help of grants from the District 181 Foundation. All District students are encouraged to apply for a KIDS (Kids Initiating a Difference in Society) Grant for up to $150 to make their ideas a reality for the benefit of the local and world-wide community.
