Happy New Year!

The 2014-15 school year is in full swing and we are a dynamic and involved school community.  The second half of the school year will promise to be just as memorable and important.  

Speaking of things to come, please mark you calendars for the Parent Coffee on February 10th at 8am.   Please stop by the school library for refreshments to catch up with parents and find out what is happening at Walnut Acres.   

It is already time to start planning for the 2015-16 school year.  Walnut Acres is a very active school with many fun and enriching activities throughout the school year. In order to provide the many special programs and activities for our children, we need everyone to help!

Volunteers are always Welcome and Needed! 

The Walnut Acres PFC board is best described as a wheel made up of many spokes, one no more important that the other.  Keep in mind that the integrity of the entire wheel is weakened if it is missing any of its spokes.  For this, we depend heavily on our volunteers and it would not be possible without their time and talent.  

Without volunteers in place, programs and funding may not be sustained.  There are a variety of committees that easily adapt to every schedule, even for those that work full time.  The Executive Board holds the responsibility of maintaining and monitoring the budget spending to best support existing staff and programs. Many of these key positions are opening and must be filled.  If you are interested in any of the open positions mentioned below, please contact me at president@walnutacrespfc.net by March 1st.  Unless parents contact us to help fill these open positions, many of the programs and enrichment activities we offer our children will have to be removed or cancelled.  Let's work together!

The open Executive Board positions are:
VP-Programs and Activities
Assistant Treasurer

Additional open PFC Board positions are:
Auction Lead
PFC Webmaster
PEP Coordinators-2 positions
Nominating Chair-Lead and committee chairs
Directory Lead 
Directory Layout
Directory Advertising
Yearbook-2 positions
Drive-Thru Coordinator
T-Shirt/Spirit Wear Coordinators-2 positions

Please check the PFC website for more information on the positions mentioned and other upcoming community events.  As always, thank you to ALL our wonderful volunteers, parents, families, staff and kids who make Walnut Acres shine!  Cheers to a continued success for the 2014-15 school year!
