Trimester Feedback Needed
The 2016-17 school year is the first year Emporia Public Schools have implemented a trimester schedule. Classes in the first trimester met Aug 17 – Nov 10. We have two more trimesters this year: Trimester 2 meets from Nov 14 – Feb 23 and Trimester 3 meets from Feb 27 – May 24-26. We want to gather feedback on the experiences students, staff, and parents had during the initial trimester. The feedback will be used to determine changes that need to be considered for future school calendars. Please take this short survey.
On Thanksgiving morning Walnut Elementary School will host the 6th annual Turkey Day Dash 5K. More than 600 participants took part in the event in 2015 to support Walnut PTO. See the flyer at right for details. Register online at active.com or use the printable registration form. Early registration ends November 10. Call 341-2288 for information. Wear costumes! Prizes will be awarded.
