COMPLETE THIS BACK TO SCHOOL CHECKLIST AND SKIP THE LINES ON JAGUAR DAY!
Hello Walnut Acres Families,
We hope you had a wonderful summer! To help you prepare for the 2018-19 school year at Walnut Acres Elementary, we are trying something new. Starting August 8, you can complete most of your Jaguar Day checklist online! Use the checklist below to complete tasks online and skip the lines for Jaguar Fund, Spirit Wear, Yearbook, and Classroom Emergency Food Kits when you come to get your classroom assignments on Jaguar Day.
- Update MDUSD HomeLink
Go to HomeLink to update your address, phone numbers, and emergency contacts. Complete this task by August 13th to receive your child’s class assignment immediately at Jaguar Day.
If you are a new family, or have a student who is enrolling at Walnut Acres for the first time, please go to the office through Tuesday, August 14 to get your verification code to enter your new student in HomeLink. You will need to show a photo ID (such as a driver's license) to receive the letter that contains your verification code. Alternatively, you may complete an Emergency Form, also available in the office, and bring it with you to Jaguar Day.
Reminder: students must have all required immunizations completed before you receive your child’s class assignment at Jaguar Day.
- New to Walnut Acres? Register on Konstella!
Konstella is our school’s communication tool for announcements and sign-ups, and it is our online directory. New families need to register! Go to: www.konstella.com and click “Find Your School” and enter “Walnut Acres” to register.
- Donate to Jaguar Fund
New! You can donate to our Jaguar Fund online via Konstella with a credit card. The Jaguar Fund is our primary source of funds to bridge the gap between public funding and the true cost of our children’s education at Walnut Acres. The recommended amount per child is $650. Go to Jaguar Fund to make a lump-sum donation or set-up automatic monthly payments. If you prefer to pay by cash or check, you can do so on Jaguar Day.
- Purchase Spirit Wear and Classroom Emergency Food Kits
New! You can purchase Spirit Wear and pre-made Classroom Emergency Food Kits online via Konstella with a credit card. Go to Spirit Wear Sales and Classroom Emergency Food Kit Sales to purchase. If you prefer to pay by cash or check, you can do so on Jaguar Day. The last day to order Spirit Wear and Classroom Emergency Food Kits is Saturday, August 25.
- Purchase the 2018-19 Yearbook
Order your 2018-19 Walnut Acres Yearbook at: www.yearbookordercenter.com. Our School Code is 10053. The price of the yearbook is $25 until October 31st. On November 1, 2018, the price increases to $35.
- Attend Jaguar Day on August 14!
Receive your child’s class assignment, learn about PFC programs, activities, and fundraisers, and catch up with your friends! At Jaguar Day you can:
- Contribute to Jaguar Fund and purchase Classroom Emergency Food Kits, Spirit Wear, or Yearbooks, if you have not already done so online.
- Sign up for parent volunteer positions including Room Parent, Art Appreciation, Library, Teacher Appreciation, Auction, Buy-in Parties, and International Festival.

Paying by Check? If you plan to pay by check at Jaguar Day, please note that you may be writing three checks at Jaguar Day - one for your donations to the Jaguar Fund, one for the purchase of Spirit Wear and one for Classroom Emergency Food Kits. The Yearbooks are available online only, and the Order Center requires a credit card payment.
