Garden Club

The Walnut Grove Student Garden is open to all students during their lunch recess every Tuesday. Students are invited to help in the garden by weeding, watering, planting, harvesting, and tasting.

We always appreciate help from other parents to direct and help the children.  If your child comes to the garden regularly, please consider helping out a couple times this year. No garden experience is required, and we do not expect a weekly commitment!

For more information, please contact Candee Banman or Kim McCoy.

Math Club

The Math Club is an after-school activity for 4th and 5th grade students who love to compete and have fun by challenging themselves with difficult math concepts, while applying critical thinking in complex problems. Students take five Math Olympiad tests from November through March.

The Math Club meets two Wednesdays a month from 3:10 to 4:00 pm. For more information, please contact Manisha Chawla.

Run Club

The Run Club meets every Friday morning at 7:30 am, beginning with the first week of school. All grades are welcome, and moms, dads, and even grandparents are encouraged to join in the fun.

Participants stretch for a few minutes at the beginning of each club meeting and then spend 20 minutes running and walking around the blue line on the playground. At the end, each person's laps are recorded. Fun charms are given for distance running, as well as for attendance. 

The Run Club participants gather at the picnic tables near the garden. (Note: Run Club meetings are cancelled in the event of rain.)

For more information about the Run Club, please contact Audrey Gillette.

Science Club

Walnut Grove is continuing our amazing SCIENCE CLUB this year!  This club is for 4th and 5th graders and will be led by Amador Valley High School students from the Amador's Science For Youth club. We will engage students with interactive science activities, applying classroom science to aspects of everyday life. The club will also prepare students to participate in the Science Olympiad competitions that will be held later on in the school year.  

The club meets every week and will start on September 16th in Room 101 (Mrs. Martin's Room).
