Alumni Award

Dear Parents & Guardians,

There is nothing like a good, unexpected surprise! This week, I received an email from EducationMatters, sharing with me that Colonel Walker alumni from the graduation years of 1950-1965 had a reunion and decided to create a Colonel Walker 1950-1965 Alumni Award for three grade 6 students at a value of $250 each, based on superior citizenship qualities and academic achievement. This is an annual award and the nominations will be put forward on May 1st of each year. At least one school staff member (myself and perhaps a teacher or two) will meet with an EducationMatters staff member to discuss the nominations and then make collaborative decisions.

This is such an incredible example of how strong the community ties are in Inglewood and the long-lasting feeling alumni have towards their school. It shows, yet again, how much belonging and sense of community a school creates. I really wished that we would have names and photos of these alumni students. Wouldn’t it be amazing if some of them could be speaking to our students? Sharing their stories? I don’t know if you happen to know any of them. If you do, please let them know how much we appreciate their generosity and that we would love to be in touch personally.

We have even more good news, as I was notified that our gym floor will be refinished during the spring break. So, upon our return, we will have a new-looking gym floor to enjoy!
