Non-PTA Sponsored Enrichment Programming: For your scheduling convenience, we have tried to include as much of the non-PTA sponsored enrichment programming to help you with your personal planning. These activities will have their own registration and contact person(s).  Some of these include: Y.O.U., Photography Club, Girls Play Sports, etc. You will notice that Girls Coding and Drama Club are also available to register via Homeroom! Walker Y.O.U. Fact Sheet 2019-2020

Schedule: Please note that the schedule is available to you in two formats – the first one is for timing and scheduling and then, the second one is with cost for registration.  Registration should take place through http://bit.ly/WalkerEnrichment for the majority of these enrichment offerings.

If you have any other questions, please contact WalkerEnrichment@gmail.com We’re looking forward to another great season!
