Walker Elementary School
Dear Parents / Guardians:
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome each and everyone back, and to introduce myself to my Walker Family. My name is Mr. Bullock, and I have worked for Broward County Schools for 28 years, 21 years as a school administrator. I have worked in all different kinds of communities, but the formula for success is the same. Schools are successful when talented, hard working staff work together with parents and the community to dedicate themselves to educational excellence. Through high expectations will come high achievement, and our goal for the 2015-2016 school year is to provide the tools necessary to achieve at the highest level possible. Working together, I am confident that our goals will be met.
