Help Support Mrs. Walsh!!

Walnut Grove's own Sara Walsh has launched a Donors Choose campaign to get books into the hands of Kindergarten - 2nd Grade students. 

Mrs. Walsh will only receive her materials if this project is fully funded by February 28, 2016 so she needs your support!!  Every donation is much appreciated!

Please support Mrs. Walsh's fantastic efforts here:

*Use code: SPARK and Donors Choose will double your donation for a limited time.

Thank you for supporting Mrs. Walsh's efforts to create thoughtful readers at The Grove.

Buy farm-fresh products and help raise funds for 5th grade

Buy farm-fresh products from Farmigo, and help raise funds for Walnut Grove's 5th-grade field trips! 

Farmigo will deliver farm-fresh products to our school site. We believe that this partnership with Farmigo will provide a leadership opportunity for our 5th graders to coordinate and deliver the food, promote healthy living and food connections to our WG families, and help supplement the cost of planned 5th-grade field trips. 

We would really appreciate your help in getting this program started. This is how it works:

  1. Visit the Walnut Grove Farmigo website.  
  2. Order products online by Sunday night. 
  3. Your products will be delivered to school every Wednesday.
  4. Pick up produce in a designated area, or the 5th grade will deliver products. (We are still working this part out.) 

**For your first order, Farmigo is offering a coupon for $10 off any $20+ order. Use this coupon code: SCHOOLSBACK

We need your help!

Our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is dedicated to empowering parents to make a difference in the education, health, and safety of students at Walnut Grove. Please help make our school the best it can be by joining PTA today.

We would also like to encourage families to make a annual donation of $1 a day for every day of school through our "Dollar a Day" campaign. That is just $180 per student (or $250 per family) for the entire year. But any amount is very much appreciated and will be put to good use. When you contribute to Dollar a Day, 100% of your donation will support our students here at the Grove.
