WALDEN WEAR COLLECTION

Do you have any Walden Wear that no longer fits? We are collecting gently-used Walden Wear for students of families in need. If you are interested, Mary will be collecting clothing items in the front office through the last day of school. Thanks so much!

CLASSROOM SUPPLIES DONATION ACTIVITY

Teaming up with Gratitude Generation, this year Walden will be collecting what's left of new or gently used school supplies in our classrooms to donate to Roberti Community Center in Waukegan. Along with their buddy classrooms, students will be sorting and collecting supplies that are still in good condition, and they'll be making a bookmark for a child at the community center/in Waukegan schools. Please encourage your children to donate the items they have in their classrooms that are in good/great condition, knowing they will make a huge impact on students in Waukegan, a community in great need and just 20 minutes away from Deerfield. Thank you in advance!

After you receive your class placements on August 8th, please renew your Walden PTO membership to enter and view information in the Walden PTO Directory app. We will also send out information in early August on setting up PTO web account, Enrichment, Before School Care, and more!

WALDEN PTO MENTORS NEEDED FOR NEW FAMILIES

Please consider signing up to mentor a new family for the 2019/2020 school year. This assignment is not a big time commitment, however it has a huge impact on individual families. Current Walden families will be assigned to one new family to each volunteer. Your assignment is to reach out to your family and introduce yourself at the beginning of the year, welcome them to the Walden School Community and let them know you are happy to answer any questions they may have.

We will host a Mentors and New Family get together once school is back in session. If you are interested or have any questions, please reach out to Ellen Razzoog (erazzoog@yahoo.com) or Jen Katz (jmkatz27@gmail.com)

PHILANTHROPY FAIR- THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone who came out last week to support the Philanthropy Fair! We raised a grand total of $1900 !!!!! Amazing!


The money raised is for Gratitude Generation to help a less fortunate elementary school in a nearby community. The money will go towards educational classroom supplies for their 5th grade classrooms.
