The Friday Forecast

The Week of January 24-January 28, 2022


Although we would instead meet you in person, we are pleased to welcome you to our Virtual Showcase! We hope that the information you find throughout our Showcase website will help give you a glimpse into all of the pathways, programs, activities, and support systems we offer at Walnut High School.

We wanted to make our Virtual Showcase interactive, fun, and informative for you and your child. Start by clicking on our Academics button as our Grade Level Coordinators give a brief presentation for each grade level. After that, start exploring the different opportunities we offer our students. We want all of our students to feel connected and find the right fit that helps them explore their passions, interests, and academic goals as they navigate through High School.

Our Virtual Showcase link is active for the entire school year, but we recommend you sit down with your child tonight, tomorrow, or during the weekend to watch presentations they are interested in as they prepare to choose classes in the Spring.

We are grateful to our community during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your continued support, and please reach out if we can be of any further assistance.

Go Mustangs!
