Walden PTO Weekly

September 15, 2023



Our biggest fundraiser of the year is upon us! Walden's raffle baskets brought in thousands of dollars in 2022, and we're hoping for an even greater outcome this year. But...we need your help! Please think of any connections you may have to local businesses that would be interested in donating a gift certificate or physical item to our school. We welcome any contributions, and would especially love to raffle off sports tickets or vacations this year.

Please send your ideas to Heather Schwartz (hrs5581@gmail.com) or Hillary Teven (hillaryteven@gmail.com).

We are grateful to already have commitments from several businesses and don't want to duplicate our efforts, so please don't reach out to businesses on your own before you touch base with Heather or Hillary.


if you did not pick up your Deerfield Discount Card, it will be sent home with your child by the end of next week. Thanks for supporting our school & local businesses!

If you have questions, please email PTOWalden@gmail.com.



Only 1 week left until Walden Movie Night! Come join us next Friday, September 22 and watch a movie, enjoy dinner and dessert, and get comfortable on a blanket while hanging out with friends and family! We are excited to announce that this year’s movie will be Super Mario Bros.

At movie night we will be selling popcorn, candy, snacks, and slices of pizza. Gluten-free pizza will be available as well, but ONLY for pre-order. This year we will also be taking pre-orders for whole pizzas–save yourself time the day of the event and be guaranteed a whole pizza for your family.

Friendly reminders: this is not a drop off event and cash for concessions is greatly appreciated!

Friday, September 22 from 6 PM - 8 PM.

The cost of this event is $10 per family!
