We give second chances
We apologize
We forgive
We respect each other
We keep our promises 
We never give up
We encourage one another
We laugh often
We belong

We Are A Family

A Note From Our Principal


William Bryant once said, “Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile!” and I couldn’t agree more. This time of year brings crisp air and along with it an extra bounce in our step. I am so very happy to welcome fall!

Spirit Week: Students are invited to show their school spirit the week of September 30th – Oct. 4th. Monday is Crazy Hair Day (hair coloring is okay as long as it washes out), Tuesday is Twin Day, Wednesday is Sports Day, Thursday is Disney Day and Friday is Blue and Gold Day. 

PTO Our next PTO meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 2nd at 2:30 p.m. in the Library. Our meetings last about one hour. Child care and Spanish translation are provided. We would love to see you there!

Teachers will be contacting you soon to schedule. Please make every effort to attend these meetings.

Report Cards will not be sent home with students as they will be given out during conferences. There will be noon dismissal on conference days and NO after school SKILLS program, so please make arrangements for your student(s) after school care.

Flowing Wells Homecoming will be held on Friday, October 11th at Flowing Wells High School.  Walter Douglas students are invited to march in the Homecoming Parade!  Students need to be accompanied by an adult.  Any students who want to march in the parade should meet in the “student lot” at 5:30 on the 11th.  The parade starts at 6:00.  Hope to see you there!

Fall Break Immediately following parent teacher conferences we will be on Fall Break. Students are off for four days, October 17TH- October 20TH. School resumes on Monday, October 21st.

Student Drop Off and Pick Up Thank you to all of the parents that have been patient and understanding of the fact that we cannot park our cars and exit our vehicles when using the Mohave entrance to the school when dropping off children before school or picking up children after school. Please remember that Mohave is designated as a “pick up and drop off” area only.

 I look forward to seeing you on campus during parent/teacher conference week. I know teachers are also looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s progress. We here at Walter Douglas know that it takes families and teachers working together to help our students succeed and we appreciate everything you do to support your child in their education.

 

Sincerely, 

Dr. Tamára McAllister
Principal
