Fun Run‎ > ‎

Community

One goal of the Walnut Grove PTA is to build community within our school by offering various events, such as the following:

  • Back-to School family Social
  • Halloween Trunk or Treat
  • Parents Night Out
  • Coffee with the Principal
  • Donut Fun Events
  • The Fun Run
  • Spring Carnival
  • Open House Ice Cream Social

Back-to-School Family Social

Shortly after school starts again in the fall, the Walnut Grove PTA invites families to join us for a community-building family social. Food trucks will be on-site for those who wish to buy dinner and/or dessert, or bring your own picnic and enjoy the music and company. It's a great time to reconnect with other Walnut Grove families as we begin the school year.

Parents Night Out

The Walnut Grove PTA invites parents to join us for an evening out while enjoying music, food, and friends.The event is usually held in early spring and will often include a fun raffle and/or auction.  


Coffee with the Principal

Once a month, the PTA hosts a discussion time with our principal where you can ask questions and find out the latest school news. These events will typically take place on Wednesday mornings at 9:20am.  Please check the PTA calendar for specific dates each month.

Fun Run

The annual Fun Run is a wonderful community-building event that encourages Walnut Grove students to be active while supporting our school. Students are encouraged to obtain pledges for each lap they run to raise money for the school. 

The day of the Fun Run is full of laughter, fun, music, community pride, and healthy exercise. Each student is given a Fun Run T-shirt sponsored by the friends and families in our community. Each grade level is assigned a "spirit color" to wear. Many classes choose to tie-dye their t-shirts; color their hair; and adorn socks, hairbands, and even tutus to show their spirit. 

Parent volunteers join Mr. Taylor (one of our amazing Walnut Grove PE teachers and our MC for the event) in decorating the school grounds with colorful flags and balloons to set the tone for the day. On the day of the event, we crank up the volume of the music and party! Parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends come out for the day and cheer on the students.

The Fun Run is a great way to come together and mingle with old friends and new, while raising money for Walnut Grove. It stands out as a highlight of every school year!

Open House Ice Cream Social

The PTA provides ice cream at Walnut Grove's spring Open House, inviting families to enjoy some refreshment together while they explore our classrooms and celebrate student achievements. For more information about this event, please contact hospitality@walnutgrovepta.org.
