The Walden Weekly

School News You Can Use - May 19, 2023

Dear Walden Families,

We had an amazing week at Walden School! Today we enjoyed a fun Bagel and Donut Breakfast sponsored by our PTO. It was a delicious way to start the day! Our students also earned an incredible PAWS reward which culminated today with a Science Assembly! Students shared afterwards that it was their favorite assembly of all time! Thank you to our PTO for sponsoring this activity as well!

We will be starting our GO WILDCATS countdown on May 24th! Please see the schedule below. On Thursday we will also be having our sunglasses day for our final Theme Thursday!

Have a great weekend and we'll see you back on Monday!

Philanthropy Fair is on Tuesday!

The Philanthropy Fair is THIS TUESDAY, May 23rd, after school from 3:30-4:30 on the blacktop by the K-2 playground! Please come by to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Deadline Is Today for School Supplies! (3rd Posting)

Supply kits for next school year, 2023-2024, are now available to purchase! The sale runs from Friday, May 5th until Friday May, 19th. After that window, you will NOT be able to order a kit. Don't miss out on the chance to buy all the supplies your Walden student(s) will need in one
easy transaction!
To purchase your supply kit, please go to the "FOR SALE" section on the Walden PTO app or the Walden PTO website. If your child is an incoming Kindergartener, you must either create a PTO account or add their name to your existing PTO account. All kits will be delivered to Walden and be waiting in your child's classroom on the first day of school. This is the preferred choice by the teachers - so they can label and organize all of your child's belongings before school begins. Don’t forget to order for the grade(s) your child(ren) will be in
next fall.

If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Roseman & Carly Sear
