About the PTA

The Walnut Grove PTA is a nonprofit, volunteer organization established to benefit students at Walnut Grove Elementary School. 

The PTA's goal is to bring the staff and parents together to improve and enhance our children’s school experience. We  work to achieve this goal in the following ways:

  • Volunteering our time for school events and projects
  • Hosting school functions
  • Fostering communication between parents, staff, and the district
  • Fundraising to help meet unfunded school needs.
