Principal's Corner

  • Welcome to Walnut Grove Elementary!!

    Brian Proctor On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome all of you to your new school! It is with great honor and much enthusiasm that we open Walnut Grove after much anticipation.  Much planning, CONSTRUCTION and hard work has gone into preparing for opening our school and for a successful school year.

    Let me begin by introducing myself! My name is Mr. Proctor and I will be your principal! I am thrilled to welcome you to Walnut Grove and I am looking forward to meeting new faces and hearing all about your summer adventures! For those of you who have not met me, I have been in education for 21 years.  I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 7th grades in Clark Pleasant Schools for 7 years before working 2 years in Carmel Clay Schools as an assistant principal. I have been a principal in Center Grove for the last 11 years. I am very excited to work together to make your child’s experience at Walnut Grove truly amazing!  

    It is with great pleasure that we open our doors to all of you.  Walnut Grove has many unique features that we know you will take great pride in seeing.  We look forward to providing your child with the best learning experience possible.

    A lot of information will be provided via the website and through email as a way to prepare for the upcoming school year.  We recognize that routines and procedures may look different than the school that you are coming from. We ask that you work with our team and staff throughout this transition so that we can all ensure a successful and smooth school year.  

    This will be a FANTASTIC year!


    Brian Proctor, Principal
