March 2015
A Note From the Principal...
Walter Douglas Elementary School is focused on academic excellence! You can feel the energy here on campus as staff and
students get ready to concentrate on accomplishing our learning goals for the final quarter of the year. Please make sure your
child takes their studies seriously this month as teachers will be preparing students for the new AZMerit testing in April.
Remember that research shows students who complete homework on a regular basis increase their confidence and do better in
school. Education is a partnership between you, your child, and the school. Please assist us in helping your child demonstrate
they are ready to be promoted to the next grade by encouraging focus and dedication to school work.
As they say at the U of A, it is time to “Bear Down”!
Upcoming Events:
March 5th- Success Assembly February’s Star Students will be honored. Please join us at 8:00 a.m. in the MPR.
March 6th- End of 3rd Quarter. There will be no school this day as teachers will be compiling report cards to be distributed the

March 9th –13th - KINDERGARTEN ROUND UP. If you have a kindergartener for the 2015-2016 school year at home, please
come by and start the process for registering next year. We will begin registration for kindergarteners March 9th. It is crucial we
get these students registered early so we can start making decisions about the number of teachers we will need for next year.
Stop by and get your kindergartener on the list!

March 12th-13th - Parent/Teacher Conferences. School will be dismissed at noon on both of these days. Conferences are

the opportunity to set up a conference with your child's teacher by calling the teacher here at school.

* Additional PAWSitive Referral
P.A.W.S. Corner with Mr. Nogami
Hello Bulldog Families. It’s hard to believe that the end of the third quarter is already upon us! Here at Walter Douglas, our
students are working hard to make good choices and follow P.A.W.S. This is shown by the record high number of
PAWSitive referrals earned this month. As you may remember, our school has been working hard to earn an Ice Cream
Social this quarter. I am happy to report that we are very close to earning it! We need six days with no office referrals and
we have four. Be sure to check in with your child every night. Some things you can ask are: did you follow P.A.W.S.
today? Did you do your homework?
Here’s to a great end of the third quarter and an even better fourth quarter!
Hola Familias de Walter Douglas. Es difícil creer que el final de tercer cuarto de semestre ha llegado! Aquí en
Walter Douglas, nuestros estudiantes están trabajando arduamente para hacer decisiones correctas y seguir
P.A.W.S. Esto se demuestra en el alto numero de reportes positivos (PAWSitive referrals) ganados este mes.
Como recordaran, nuestra escuela esta trabajando muy duro para ganar un día social de helados. Estoy feliz de
reportar que estamos muy cerca de lograrlo! Necesitamos seis días sin reportes negativos y tenemos cuatro. Por
favor asegure de platicar con su hijo/a cada noche. Algunas cosas que preguntar son: seguiste P.A.W.S. hoy?
Hiciste tui tarea? Esperemos un gran final del tercer cuarto de semestre y aun un mejor cuarto de semestre.

Happy March to 2nd grade families!
Thank you to all of the chaperones who came with us to help on the Rodeo field trip! We
all had a great time! Also, thank you to the families that have donated to your child’s
classroom! If you have not yet made a donation, please considering bringing either a box of
tissues or a healthy snack for your child’s classroom. We appreciate your help! Lastly,
please remember to be completing the fluency and problem of the week math homework every night as they are
both due on Fridays. Thank you for all that you do to support your child’s education.
~The 2nd Grade Teachers
Hello Parents! Third grade is looking forward to the month of
March. We have completed our district assessments in reading and
math, and are now on the countdown to our final state test! This
test will be given in April, and will cover all of the content taught
throughout the school year. The best ways to help prepare your child for this test is to make
sure they are on time and at school each day of the week, completing all homework
assignments, and reading a good book each and every night! Finally, thank you for continuing
to work with your child to complete the Reading Reflection Log and Math Problem Solving
each week, and encouraging your child to demonstrate their personal best each and every day!
VERY IMPORTANT GRAND CANYON INFORMATION:
The Grand Canyon permission slip will be sent home the week of March 9. It is
extremely important that you complete all the information. The fee of $75.00 is
due by March 27.
We will be going to Saguaro National Park on March 16. Students will need a sack lunch,
sunscreen, a bottle of water, and a hat. The permission slip will be sent home the first week in
March.
Thank you for your continued support of our math and reading goals. We appreciate that you are
taking time to work with your children!
We made it through our final District
Assessment! Thank you all for your support in
helping your children be successful.
Parent teacher conferences are coming soon so please watch for
paperwork coming home in your child’s backpack. Please also watch for the
yellow parent involvement sheets that come home every Monday, they are
to be completed with you and signed. Thanks again for your support and
involvement in your child’s education. Lastly, please continue to read with
your child and practice math facts!
As we head into the last quarter of 6th grade and your children’s
elementary school years, we are thankful for the time that we have had
with your kids this year. The month of March is a busy one for us. We
look forward to meeting with many of you during Parent-Teacher
Conferences on March 12th and 13th. On Thursday, March 19th, we will go on a field trip to hear
some chamber music. We are also going to be participating in the annual Flowing Wells District
Elementary School Track Meet at Flowing Wells High School on Monday, March 23rd. You are
invited to come and join us for part or all of the day as we enjoy cheer our students on. As
always, please feel free to contact any one of us with questions or concerns at any time. We are
happy to hear from you!

Hi Parents! Another friendly chat with your local-est PTO president here. Lets review
February and talk about March AT THE SAME TIME!
In February, we had a Burger King night, maybe you were there? Maybe I bought you
dinner? Maybe we'll be having another one in March (spoiler alert: we will. Keep an
eye out for the flier.) We also had samples of our current fundraiser, the Butter Braids,
at the Buckaroo BBQ. If you missed out on the samples, TRUST ME: they are
deee-licious. Really delicious. Honest. Order yours today. Orders are due on the 13th
and delivery is the week before Spring Break. Do NOT miss out on these, they are
great. The last thing your PTO started in February was get a t-shirt sale set up. You can order shirts until
mid April through our vendor online at www.spiritandpride.com or with the paper envelope and order form.
Delivery on the shirts is 3-4 weeks.
Find us on the Facebook Machine, we are the Walter Douglas PTO. You can almost always get a hold of
me directly, too, call/text 520-668-6922. Hope to see you soon!
