Thank you for your ongoing support to Walnut Acres and the PFC!  Our children are very fortunate to have such a dedicated community working together to provide them a better, more enriching education.  
The first couple of months at Walnut Acres and the PFC have been fun filled and busy.  Over the past several weeks, we’ve had parent volunteers in charge of Jaguar Fund, the Student Directory, Gift Wrap, Carnival, Theatre Enrichment and Red Ribbon Week and continue to work hard planning many of our upcoming events. 

We hope we haven’t overwhelmed you with our fundraisers and community events.  The PFC has scheduled a number of smaller fundraisers and activities that may offer something for every family.  Thank you to all who participated in the Gift Wrap fundraiser and attended the Fall Carnival.  

The Jaguar Fund participation level is well on it’s way to our goal of 100%.  It’s not too late to contribute! Donations and corporate matches are accepted all year and any amount is appreciated.  Many companies are now offering donations for community service. This is another opportunity to help earn donations while you share your time and talent.  

The Walnut Acres Children’s Theatre presents “The Trial of Alice in Wonderland!”, a 3rd & 4th grade musical production on November 7th and 8th at 7pm.  Come support our young and talented actors!

Tis the season to begin holiday shopping!  Please check the Shop and Earn for School link on the PFC website for participating vendors. A simple click on the vendor’s logo will forward you to their page and a small percentage of your online purchase will be donated to the Walnut Acres PFC.  It’s easy and free money to Walnut Acres. Happy shopping! 
You’re invited to our next PFC meeting on Tuesday, November 18th at 7pm.  We always hope for a full house! This is a great opportunity to listen and ask questions and all parents at every grade level are welcome to attend.  Be informed, be active and be your child’s biggest fan! 

Save the date for our Walnut Acres Holiday Party on December 2nd!  All Walnut Acres parents, teachers and staff are invited and encouraged to bring a treat to share.  Please check the PFC website and enews for more information on these and other current events.  

Cheers and best wishes to you and your family for safe and happy memories this holiday season!

With appreciation,
