Hello, my name is Daniel Fielding. If you don’t already know me, I am the new Superintendent for Waldron Schools. I would first like to say how thankful I am for the opportunity to be a part of this great district. I love this community and this school, and I will do everything I can to help see both prosper. With that said, I would like to invite you to read the monthly column that will be included in the Waldron News. Each month you will be able to read about the events that go on in our great school district. The students, staff, clubs and teams that makeup Waldron Public Schools regularly earn honors and awards for accomplishments in a multitude of areas. Although we try to communicate these achievements and upcoming events with our community, we are always looking for new avenues to present all of the great things taking place at our school. What better way to communicate with our community than through our local newspaper! From all of the staff at Waldron Public Schools, we hope you are informed by this monthly column and will make it a regular part of reading the Waldron News. Here are a few of the recent/upcoming events and achievements for Waldron Schools.
Waldron Elementary School has been designated as a “School of Innovation” by the Arkansas Department of Education for their Community of Learning Model.
Waldron High School has been awarded for “Outstanding Educational Performance” by the University of Arkansas Office of Education Policy for English Language Arts growth. This award called the “Beating the Odds” award is presented to schools in poverty areas attaining high test scores on the ACT Aspire yearly performance test.
Ryan Walker (Elementary Principal), Chris Lipham (Middle School Principal) and Kim Solomon (High School Principal) have all three been selected to participate in the Arkansas Master Principal Program. This program was developed by the Arkansas Leadership Academy to help highly motivated administrators throughout the state learn and apply high impact school leadership strategies. The selection process is competitive, which makes the acceptance of all three principals a real accomplishment, and a testament to their dedication to the students and staff of Waldron Schools
The staff at Waldron Schools would like to invite students and parents to our annual Parents Make a Difference Night on Thursday August 9th from 5pm-7pm. This is an excellent opportunity for parents and students to meet their teachers, see where their classes are, and ease those first day jitters.
