What's New at Walnut?

Specialists Start Next Week!

There are many good things about having students back for a full-day on campus, and one of those good things is the time for students to work with specialists! Over the next two weeks, students will begin attending PE, music, dance/movement, and art classes. They will also get to visit the library regularly and opt to spend time in Create Club at recess (grades 1-5). You may start hearing your children talk about their experiences with:
  • Mrs. Flores--PE
  • Mrs. Drossel--Music
  • Mrs. Wilcox or Ms. Liliana--Dance/Movement
  • Mrs. Bernard--Art
  • Mrs. Gennette--Library

Walnut Elementary School

Walnut is a neighborhood school with a BIG heart, where every student is valued and encouraged to develop a lifelong love of learning. We believe in developing the whole child, so we invest in the visual and performing arts, technology, and physical fitness in addition to traditional academics. We were recently one of five schools in Ventura County named as a California Honor Roll School. We are committed to our mission statement, Academic Excellence for All in a Safe, Enriching Environment. Walnut has an active PTA, School Site Council, and English Language Advisory Council. Each of these groups of parents and community members would LOVE to have YOU join them in making sure Walnut provides the best possible learning environment for students and families. Please contact us if you'd like to know more. --Mrs. Wall, Principal
