The Walnut Grove PTA is a non-profit, volunteer organization established to benefit students at Walnut Grove Elementary School.
The goal of the PTA is to bring the staff and parents together to improve and enhance our children’s school experience. We are able to achieve this goal by:
- 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.
