A Note From Our Principal

Dear Families,


It is hard to believe that the 2017-2018 school year is coming to an end! All of our Bulldogs have worked hard this year to follow P.A.W.S. and demonstrate our Core Values. With so much hard work and effort, our summer goal is not to lose the progress made throughout the school year! Please make sure your child is practicing reading strategies and math facts during the summer months. Walter Douglas Summer SKILLS for Success program will be hosted at Laguna Elementary School this year. If you are interested in this program, please come to our front office to receive a registration packet.

Kindergarten Registration-The Round-Up continues! If you have a child who will be 5 years old before September 1, 2018, now is the time to please sign him/her up for the BEST all day Kindergarten program in Tucson.

Returning Students- We are in the process of creating class lists for next year. Please complete the online registration process and return the yellow dismissal form to your child’s teacher. If you are not planning to return to Walter Douglas next year simply write “not returning’ on the packet we sent home and return it with your child. We aim to create balanced classes for next year so please be sure to complete your child’s registration!

Walter Douglas Teacher of the Year-This school has the best teachers around and as a team they have nominated Mr. Keith Martin, 4th Grade Teacher, as Teacher of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year.

Congratulations, Mr. Martin!

May is a busy month with many exciting activities planned. Please check our website or the calendar attached to this newsletter for important dates and times.

Please remember, the last day of school is Thursday, May 24th and that day is noon dismissal!

THANK YOU to our amazing school community for all you do to make Walter Douglas an A+ school! Thank you to all of you for making this a productive and successful school year, we couldn’t have done it without you! We have genuinely enjoyed having your child at Walter Douglas. We especially wish our outgoing 6th graders well as they transition to Flowing Wells Junior High, you are becoming Mustangs but in our hearts you will always be Bulldogs. For all kindergarten through 5th grade students, have a wonderful summer and we will see you next year!
