Walker ES Celebrates American Education Week

In celebration of American Education Week late last fall, Walker Elementary School invited guest readers from all over the District to come and read to students.  Readers shared some of their favorite books with students.  Eric Mitchell, Director, MIS & Instructional Technology, even brought in iPads for students to read an interactive story.  A fun day was had by all.

Special thanks to all the readers for making this a special day for the students.
