TOGETHER, WE STAY INVOLVED
At Walden our doors are always open to our families. We encourage a high level of involvement and provide opportunities for all parents, no matter what their schedule, to participate in their child’s school experience.
WALDEN PARENT ASSOCIATION
The Walden Parent Association (WPA) supports Walden’s mission and cultivates an atmosphere of volunteerism, fellowship, and respect. It opens communication among parents, students, and staff supports fundraising, and social and educational activities for both Walden School and the community at large.
EVERY WALDEN PARENT IS A MEMBER OF THE WPA.
You have the privilege and opportunity to take part in decisions that directly affect your children. The WPA organizes an annual speaker series, manages all school volunteer opportunities, conducts a new-parent mentor program and coordinates a number of school-wide events throughout the year such as Thoreau Down, Grandparents Day, WPA Skating Parties, and the Halloween Monster Mash.
In addition, Walden parents regularly serve on the Board of Trustees, participate daily as classroom parents and reading buddies, and are overall actively involved in the school community
In past years, the WPA proudly purchased SMARTBoards, patio furniture for the library courtyard, microscopes for the high school science labs, nine amplified audio systems for classroom use, and a new stage curtain and blinds.
WALDEN CLASS AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
FOR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS
OUTREACH WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE WALDEN FAMILY
The WPA is launching something new called the Walden Class Ambassador Program and we need your help! We are looking for parents and grandparents from each grade to serve as class ambassadors.
We want people who have a passion for Walden and a desire to advance the school. Class ambassadors will be instrumental in strengthening relationships within our Walden Family.
They will serve as parent liaisons by inviting fellow class parents to events, educating them on the Walden Fund, and providing support to new families.
