The Wallington High School Chapter of Glamour Gals was tied for the most journaling this service year with another high school from New York. 85% of the girls in the chapter have written at least one journal. The journals are normally written after a makeover to reflect or based on prompts they have to discuss their volunteering experience.
Multiple Wallington High School Students have distinguished themselves with strong scores on Advanced Placement Tests. Our 2018 Valedictorian, Alexis Russo Heinick, earned the College Board's prestigious "AP Scholar Award" which is granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams.
Frank W. Gavlak School is a grade K-6 building. It currently has an approximate enrollment of 449 students with one full day kindergarten, one grade one, one grade two, two grade threes, four grade fours, four grade fives and four grade sixes. Various programs are offered to meet the needs of students. Among them are: basic skills remediation, speech, special education services, bi-lingual/ESL education, gifted and talented and guidance services.
Summer vacation is slowly passing and I hope everyone is enjoying some time with family and friends. Summer break should provide some time for fun, rest and relaxation for all of our students, so they come back ready to learn during the new school-year. During the summer break, school administration is keeping busy planning for a new and exciting school year so that we can provide the best educational programs for the children.
As a reminder, it is important to make sure that your child completes the Reading and Mathematics Packets over the vacation session. These materials were made available online for all students in Grades 3-6. A hard copy can be picked up at the school office.
(Please note that the 6th Grade Transition Students should complete the work packet available to them on the Wallington High School website)
The completed packets will be collected by your child's teacher when they return to school in September, and students will get credit for their work.
Again, enjoy the rest of sumer vacation and I look forward to seeing everyone in September.
