Thanks for a Fantastic First 

Walnut Acres Walk-A-Thon!

 April 14, 2017

Dear Walnut Acres Families,

Thanks to you, your students, and some lovely sunny weather, we had a fabulous first Walk-A-Thon at Walnut Acres Elementary!

Your students came to school with incredible class spirit- crazy hair, color and team themes, capes - you name it! There were great class cheers, lots of kindness and good team spirit displayed, and some fun “walk” photos.

Thank you parent volunteers for your hard work…all 73+ of you! Special thanks to Tracy Pajer, my amazing co-chair, who came up with the idea of a Walk-a-Thon for Walnut Acres, and then promoted and MC’d it to amazing success. A big thanks to Cathy Canillas for that fantastic balloon arch, and Jen and Keith Rohrlick, founders of NuGo Nutrition, for the NuGo bars for our snack shack.

And last, but not least, many thanks to our wonderful teachers, for re-arranging their schedules, coaching their students, and promoting class spirit. And of course, the never ending support offered by Dr. Dowd, Amanda, Denise and Consuela.

We are already planning our 2nd Annual Walk-A-Thon for April, 2018! If you have feedback on this year's event, or would like to join our fun planning team for next year, please email us!
