Mon, Aug 16 2:17pm

Greetings Walnut Acres families!

I want to welcome you to the Walnut Acres Parent Faculty Committee (PFC). As a parent or guardian of a child at Walnut Acres, you are automatically considered a member of the PFC. The Walnut Acres PFC is dedicated to supporting the relationship between faculty, staff, and parents through fundraising, community activities, enrichment programs and communication.


It's been an unforgettable 16 months and I hope, like all of you, that the next school year will be memorable for many different reasons, but most of all that our kids can be together, in class, with their peers and teachers!   With this in mind, if you haven't heard, we have a theme for this school year.  Together We Shine!


I invite all of you to attend our first PFC meeting of the school year tomorrow, August 17th at 7 pm on Zoom. This is a great place for questions, suggestions, and comments to be addressed by your PFC board and by our school principal, Ms. Luong.   If you are attending with questions regarding COVID, we ask that you read the MDUSD COVID protocol ahead of the meeting.  You can provide questions ahead of time using this form.


Many members of the PFC already put in countless hours to help us Shine Together at our annual Jag Day last week.  A HUGE thank you to all those that helped make that possible.  


For those of you unable to attend Jag Day, please take care of your Jag Day checklist, if you haven't done so.  We need everybody taking care of their emergency kits, buying their spirit wear for spirit Fridays and donating to Jag Fund!  Please also pay attention to the volunteer requests that are coming through Konstella.  As always, we need your generous donations of time and money to provide even more to our kids.  


Feel free to reach out to me at: with any questions or suggestions.


Lastly, we all need to do our part to keep everybody safe and healthy.  Keep your kids home if they are sick, or if there's any concern of COVID exposure, wear your masks when required and make good choices.    Together we do our part and Together we will shine.  


All the best for an amazing 2020-21 school year,
Melanie Mitsch
