Attention Kindergarten Families!!

Please join us on August 12, 2018 at 4pm on the Walnut Creek Playground for a Popsicle Social.  This is a great opportunity to meet other Kindergarten families before the start of the new year.  Siblings are welcome!  We will have popsicles!

Looking forward to meeting new parents and children.

May/June Update

The close of a school year is always a very busy time at Walnut Creek.  This year was no exception.  In case you missed it...

May 9 – COSI on Wheels for grades 1 – 3 – our make-up day was held and the children very much enjoyed having the hands on COSI exhibit “Energy”!


May 14/15 – Walnut Creek Special Election – the children voted on the playground equipment for installation this summer.  Choice between Red, Blue and Green.  With 56% of the vote Blue won and the Omni Trinet will be installed this summer before the start of the new school year.
