Walnut Avenue PTA 2020-2021

Welcome to Walnut Avenue PTA 2020-2021!

Be Informed & Get Involved!


Hello parents! Welcome to Walnut Avenue School PTA and the new school year! This is truly an unprecedented year as we, one school family, work our way through this “new normal”. Even though we may not all be together, we are united as a school and we all want our children to have the best possible experience this year – whether at home or at school. We invite you and your family to join our efforts to make WAS a safe and nurturing place for our children by becoming a member of the PTA. We understand these are very challenging and unpredictable times and by joining the PTA it will help you stay connected to the school and other parents. Everyone is invited to join the WAS PTA family – teachers, parents, grandparents, aunt/uncles, etc.! The success of our membership drive will help towards funding virtual assemblies, programming, and equipment needed for our children to enjoy some educational and “social” fun along the way. We had truly had to wipe the slate clean this year and will be planning and organizing for the PTA according to state and district guidelines. We will also be postponing any fundraisers until January – so our PTA membership funds will help offset the beginning-of-the-year expenses. Please stay tuned for email blasts from the PTA with much more information as the school year approaches and in the first few weeks. Here are a few bits of information to help guide you to information!
