Principal's Message

Dear Walton Community,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the incoming principal of Walton Middle School.  It is truly an honor to become a part of the Walton Middle School Family and community. 

I come to you with over 20 years of experience as an educator in the Compton Unified School District.  I have served as an elementary school teacher, middle school assistant principal, high school assistant principal, elementary school principal and the principal of alternative schools. 

With all that is developing surrounding the COVID-19 virus locally and globally I know that there are questions about the opening of school.  Once the Superintendent and the Governing Board make a final decision on how school will open I will ensure to inform the Walton community. 

As we look ahead and seek to engage with the opportunities and challenges facing education today, we continue to be dedicated to making investments that strengthen our community, create a safe environment for our students and faculty, and position our school for future success. The journey we will take this year will have some sharp curves, hills, straight and narrow paths.  Together we will work to get through this unprecedented event.

Please check your Parent Square notifications, text messages, voicemails, and home mailboxes daily for communication.  I can be reached via email at lhenry@compton.k12.ca.us.

Sincerely,

Laura Brown
