What's New at Walnut?

January 16, 2022

Principal's Message

As opposed to COVID news, I am happy to devote this newsletter to good things that are happening on campus. I also want to thank Walnut staff and families for all you do every day to make sure our children feel safe, valued, and excited about learning. Yes, times are challenging, but I feel inspired every day as I watch people going over and above to support one another as well as our students. As we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. tomorrow, I'm reflecting on a few of his quotations that I see in progress with the people of Walnut, both big and little:

"The time is always right to do what is right."

"Life's most persistent questions is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality."

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday morning. --Mrs. Wall

Walnut Elementary School

Walnut is a neighborhood school with a BIG heart, where every student is valued and encouraged to develop a lifelong love of learning. We believe in developing the whole child, so we invest in the visual and performing arts, technology, and physical fitness in addition to traditional academics. We were recently one of five schools in Ventura County named as a California Honor Roll School. We are committed to our mission statement, Academic Excellence for All in a Safe, Enriching Environment. Walnut has an active PTA, School Site Council, and English Language Advisory Council. Each of these groups of parents and community members would LOVE to have YOU join them in making sure Walnut provides the best possible learning environment for students and families. Please contact us if you'd like to know more. --Mrs. Wall, Principal
