Principal's Message

Hello BWE Families! 

We are so excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! 

At Big Walnut Elementary, we are dedicated to continuing our students’ success as we personalize instruction, engage students, and grow minds. We work towards this goal on a daily basis by building and maintaining positive relationships with both students and families, providing learning opportunities that build off students’ natural curiosity, and celebrating the unique strengths of all of our students. 

I wholeheartedly believe that great schools are the result of the collaboration between students, supportive parents, and great teachers. My primary goal is to continue to support the BWE teachers and partner closely with all of our families in order to help all students grow. Together we will inspire our guide our students to learn, grow, and reach their full potential.

Thank you for your trust and support. 


Lauren Heitkamp
