Dear Walnut Acres Families,

Congratulations on being named a California Distinguished School! 

The end of the school year is always a great time to reflect on all the wonderful programs and activities we hosted throughout the year.  Our fundraisers and activities were all successful for the simple reason that the Walnut Acres community is filled with wonderful parents who generously share their time and talent in so many ways.  

I’d like to take a moment to thank the 2013-14 Executive Board members who worked hard to manage our PFC programs, activities and most importantly the budget. Special thanks to Susi Farmer and Sue Smith who have served on the executive board for the past 3 years.  I also want to recognize Stacie Morris, Jana Corral, Michele Piteck, Kathy Ringot and Dr. Dowd for their endless commitment and support this year.    

Thank you to ALL families who supported our annual education fund, “Jaguar Fund”, and participated in the PFC fundraisers such as the annual auction, directory advertising, gift-wrap, read-a-thon, the golf tournament, and eScrip & box tops for education, all of which are an essential part of our budget. The PEAK program generously donated a check in the amount of  $1,320.00 to provide additional support of our programs.  

It is with these collective efforts that the PFC is able to provide Walnut Acres all of the staff support and enrichment activities and programs we want for our children. We hope you noticed the gold stars throughout campus to highlight the PFC Dollars at Work! 

Please join us for a warmhearted farewell to Mrs. Hartman and Mrs. Amundson as they retire from teaching at Walnut Acres on Tuesday, June 10th at 2:45 in the school library.  We wish them all the best on their new endeavors.

Planning for the 2014-15 school year is already in process and we still have a few important positions to fill on the PFC board.  Please check the PFC website for more information about open positions, important dates and for the updated school year calendar.  

Best wishes to our Walnut Acres families that are officially moving on to middle school.  We appreciate all you have done for Walnut Acres and wish your children continued success!  

The next PFC meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 19 at 7pm in the school library.  Jaguar Day is Thursday, August 21 from 2-5:30pm.  I hope that I will have the privilege of seeing you at both events.  Thank you again for a fantastic 2013-14 school year! Enjoy your summer!  

Sincerely, Monica Chang
2013-14 PFC President
