WalkerFest Postponed, Raffle Still On

Dear Walker Community,

We know WalkerFest is a highly anticipated annual event at Walker Elementary and for our community at large. This year WalkerFest was scheduled for this coming Saturday, November 4th. At this time, due to a range of contributing factors, the PTA executive committee and event leads have all agreed it best to postpone the event. We are all confident that it will best serve Walker and our families to consider holding the event later in the school year.

We will still hold the raffle and the proceeds from it will support Walker Enrichment Scholarships for students as planned. The PTA is working with Ms. Lumpkin and Ms. DiMarco to determine the best way to acknowledge all the students and families who have participated and to announce the winners of raffle prizes. More information on that will come.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported WalkerFest so far and are looking forward to rescheduling it. We are grateful for your continued support and understanding.

Warmly,
The Walker PTA

October Treat: PTA Membership Drive – and your child’s class can benefit!

We are excited to announce our continuing PTA membership drive for this school year, with a brand new incentive this month, and it’s no trick!  We are currently over 100 strong, but want to keep growing!!! 

The class with the most parents, grandparents, family/friends & community members that have become an official Walker PTA member will get a pizza party on us in November!   Please share and build our community.  Just supporting PTA by paying their $10 annual dues is all it takes, but if they are inclined to attend meetings and/or help with activities we are of course happy to have them as a valuable part of the Walker School Community!

Questions, please email Junette Moseley to join, sign up online here!

Happy Fall!
