Welcome To Our New Principals

WE PTA is thrilled to welcome our new Principal, Mr. Frank Patranella and Assistant Principal, Ms. Ishii Tavarez to our school. Their experience, passion for education, and excitement to join Wallace will propel Wallace's shared vision for all students. Take time to get to know Mr. Patranella and Ms. Tavarez, giving them the warmest Wallace welcome!

Book Fair

Books, books, books! Head to the Wallace Library from September 1st through 8th to purchase books for your students, or for your students' classrooms. Proceeds benefit the Wallace Library.

Traffic & BUS Procedures

Keeping our students safe is our utmost priority!  In order to facilitate a safe and effective drop off and pick up procedure, we have developed a specific traffic protocol for cars. Please review our procedures.  


We also believe that transportation plays a vital role in education. Our bus drivers have the responsibility of ensuring that children arrive safely to and from school each day. Please review the bus procedures and expectations to help ensure efficient and safe transportation to and from school daily on the bus.

Wallace supports a voluntary uniform policy.  While not required, it is highly encouraged and students / classes are rewarded for uniform compliance.  The uniform for Wallace is:  Red, White or Navy top or dress and khaki or navy shorts, pants or skirts.
