  • Fire Prevention Poster Contest

    Walnut Street recently hosted the Bureau of Fire Prevention for an assembly. A poster contest was announced. Every year the New Jersey Division of Fire Safety puts on a poster contest. This year’s theme is “Fire won’t wait. Plan your Escape.” The Toms River Bureau of Fire Prevention does local judging and awards prizes to the winners in each division. The winners of each division will then move on to county judging and if selected onto the state level. Below I have attached the poster contest brochure with the rules and registration for each student. The posters must be completed in school to be eligible. If there are any questions feel free to reach out. Looking forward to all the submissions. Thank you. Sima Clapman, Fire Inspector, Toms River Bureau of Fire Prevention

  • Genius Hour in Space!

    3, 2, 1... BLASTOFF!!! That's exactly what 5th Grade student, Jerrick Sevilla, of Walnut Street Elementary did for his Genius Hour project in Mrs. Millington's class. Jerrick chose a topic of interest, space shuttles, spent weeks doing extensive research to become an expert on the topic, worked on his 3D model for close to a month without any adult assistance, and even wrote out a detailed speech for his presentation. His creativity and ingenuity truly came into play as he captivated his entire class when he took apart his model to show them even more hand crafted detail. Jerrick used magnets to separate and hold together pieces of his space shuttle replica. His work on this assignment was truly exceptional!

  • 30th Veterans Food Drive at Walnut Street

    Walnut Street and Vietnam Veterans Work to Feed Needy Families The partnership between Walnut Street Elementary and the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 200 continued this year as Barbara Tracey's 5th grade class at the school helped organize a food drive within their community. It all started about 30 years ago when Danny Bogota, now a veteran himself, was a student at Walnut Street Elementary and his father, Ron Bogota, a member of the Vietnam Veterans Chapter 200, partnered with the school on a food drive. Now, Danny and other veterans have been accompanying Bogota each year to Walnut Street to collect the food and help distribute it to needy veterans and families throughout Ocean County. Bogota estimates that they feed about 350 families each year. "This is a heartwarming and wonderful tradition that I would like to continue as long as possible," said Ron Bogota. "It is great to see the students giving back to the community in which they live and helping people who are a lot less fortunate than many of us." Board members Dan Leonard, Russell Corby, Joe Nardini and Superintendent David Healy were all on hand to help Ms. Tracey's 5th graders load the collected food onto the truck. Principal Richard Fastnacht told his students, "We thank you for your hard work. As educators, it brings us joy to see you give back to your community. We hope you take this experience and apply it elsewhere in your lives." As tokens of appreciation, Principal Fastnacht presented Ron Bogota with Walnut Street spirit wear and Mr. Bogota presented Principal Fastnacht with a certificate to display in the school.
