Welcome Back to School!
Wed, Aug 17 9:45pm

Dear Walnut Acres Families!


I will make my message brief, as I know there have been A LOT of communications to start the year! 


Firstly, I hope your kids have felt a warm welcome to school, whether this is a new school or a continuation within WAE.   


Next, a huge welcome to all of you, our parents and guardians, to the Walnut Acres Parent Faculty Club (PFC).  As a parent or guardian of a student at Walnut Acres, you are automatically 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.

We are continuing with our PFC theme from last year of “Together We Shine!”  At the start of last year we all had to reacquaint ourselves with what it meant to be back in the physical space of the school with new normals and we did that together!  This year, we will double down on celebrating as a community!  


I encourage you to join all the events we have planned as a PFC this year.  We have our annual Ice Cream Social coming up, and we plan on having many more social events throughout the year than we’ve had in years past in order to bring us all together.  Read your communications, although they might feel like a lot at times, to ensure you don’t miss out!   Come and enjoy… and please sign up to help at the events, too. 


Lastly, the PFC board has been very busy even before school started to get celebrations lined up.  Jag Day was an amazing kick off to the year and I want to give a HUGE thank you to Susan Heffran for a successful 2nd year of this revamped event.  What a way to start the school year!


Feel free to reach out to me at president@walnutacrespfc.net with any questions or suggestions.


All the best for an amazing 2022-23 school year,

Melanie Mitsch
