GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE DEERFIELD: VETERAN'S DAY

The Deerfield Village Hall is inviting Walden to partner in our annual Give Where You Live Deerfield for Veteran’s Day. This is a program that assembles care packages for Veterans. To help accomplish their goal, they are asking Walden Elementary School students and staff to collect SOCKS; socks are not provided at the Veterans facilities. By involving our children in this process we are teaching them what Veteran’s Day is truly about: these men and women put their lives on the line to protect us and our freedom. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment. There will be a collection box in the front lobby of our school starting October 1st. Thank you for all of your support.

Walden's Veterans Day Breakfast and Assembly

On Friday, November 9th Walden will be hosting their second annual Veterans Day breakfast and assembly. The staff and students had such an impactful experience last year thanks to the amazing veterans and their families who came to share stories, answer questions, and be honored and recognized!


We are inviting all local veterans back this year to join us starting at 8:00am in the MPR for a breakfast with the staff and then attend our all school assembly. For those veterans available and interested, we would love to have them back in our classrooms after the assembly to meet with the students.


If you or someone you know is a veteran or is currently serving, and would be interested in joining this wonderful experience, please email:

Veterans Pictures Needed!

We are looking to create a display of photographs of our students' and staff's family members that have served or are currently serving in the military! If you are interested in participating, please email Heidi Brown (hbrown200@comcast.net) a jpeg of your family member in the service, along with their name, which branch they served, and their relation to your student or yourself. We will be displaying these in the hallway in the days leading up to our Veterans Day assembly - thank you!
