MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

I just wanted to take this time to send a final farewell message to our amazing volunteers, families, and staff. It has been my pleasure to serve as President for the past two years. While we have faced many challenges over the past 15 months, I am proud of the fact that we have all worked together to do what it is we do best - support our students and staff. We could not have done it without the partnership of our families. Thank you for trusting me with this role. A special appreciation to Erika Harris who has been an incredible friend & Co-President and been by my side for countless hours. Congratulations to Julie Warhaftig for taking on this position with Erika next year. I know our PTO will be in great hands with the two of you leading the way. Wishing all our Walden families a fun, safe, and healthy summer.

See you in the Fall!
