Greetings Walnut Acres families! 

I want to welcome you to the Walnut Acres Parent Faculty Committee (PFC).  As a parent of a child at Walnut Acres, you are automatically considered a member of the PFC.  The Walnut Acres PFC is dedicated to support the relationship between faculty, staff, parents and its wonderful students.  We offer support through fundraising, hospitality, community activities, enrichment programs and communication via Enews and the PFC website.

The new school year is fast approaching and I can assure you our volunteers have been busy planning for the 2014-15 school year!  I invite all of you at attend the Walnut Acres registration day, “Jaguar Day” on August 21st. It is a first opportunity to obtain your child’s class assignment, purchase spirit wear and yearbooks; and learn more about the volunteer opportunities.

I invite all parents to become an active volunteer!  There are many ways to help including, volunteering in the classroom, support you can do from home or on the weekends and assist in an event such as the annual Auction.  Throughout the school year you can check the 2013-14 school calendar on this website and read the Enews newsletters for all upcoming activities and events happening at Walnut Acres.
As you register, make sure to provide your contact information for the directory and take a look at our "All In One" form. We are proud to continue to acknowledge in our published Donor List and hand out Jaguar Fund license plate frames to those families who contribute any amount to the Jaguar Fund, the Walnut Acres education fund. 100% of the Jaguar Fund go directly to our school to fund many of the staffing support, enrichment programs and activities necessary for our children's education.

I hope you also consider joining us for our first PFC meeting of the school year on August 19th at 7 pm in the Walnut Acres Library.   This is a great place for questions, suggestions, and comments to be addressed as our wonderful principal Dr. Dowd always attends.  Thank you and enjoy the last few weeks of summer vacation!
