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.

I would like to share some upcoming special events and dates with our parents and community members. The annual 6th Grade Valentine Social will be held at the F.W. Gavlak School on February 13th with the students enjoying activities and games. The students get the opportunity to create decorations for the event by participating in a special Valentine Heart Decoration Contest. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative decorations and our P.T.A. will be providing pizza for the students to enjoy.
The 2nd Marking Period ended on January 28th and Progress Reports will be available to parents the week of February 4th. Parent Conferences will be held at both the Jefferson Annex and the F.W. Gavlak Schools on February 6th and 7th. Parents will be receiving a conference slip to set up an appointment.
I hope all of our families enjoy the upcoming break, to be held from February 15th to February 19th.
