Message from the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I would like to take a moment to personally introduce myself and welcome you and your family to the Walnut Street Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year. My name is Jeffrey Adams, and I am the Principal of the Walnut Street School. This is my 16th year as Principal of Walnut and my 20th year with the district. During that time, I have made many connections to students, staff, families and community members within the city of Woodbury. I truly feel at home here -- what a wonderful place to work! Woodbury is a very special place indeed.

Woodbury is unique as a small, yet diverse community-based school system that offers a host of educational and extra-curricular opportunities.  While at the same time, the district strives to deliver a personalized education to all of our students. This concept of a personalized education developed through a partnership with the school, students, and community could be no truer than at Walnut Street Elementary. Walnut Street capitalizes on our small, tight-knit community atmosphere and fosters a wonderful environment for children to learn and grow. Our teachers and support staff are truly exceptional individuals who know that the education of our students is their number one priority. As a result, our students not only leave here with a solid foundation of academic knowledge but also with the ethics and interpersonal skills necessary to become responsible and productive members of the community. We achieve this goal through the development of a collaborative partnership with faculty, support staff, families, and the broader community of Woodbury.

On that note, this year we will be evolving our parental/community partnership through our Keep Love Present initiative that will build on previous year’s work.  Furthermore, we continue to have opportunities for parents to be active members of our Walnut community through the HSA, Room Parent assignment and PAC (Principal’s Advisory Committee). Once we set a schedule of those meetings, we will send you formal invitations to join us. Also take advantage of our technology outreach by following us on Twitter.

On behalf of the entire Walnut Street Staff, we look forward to working with you and your child during the 2022-2023 school year. Together, we will make it another wonderful year at Walnut Street Elementary School.
