Go Texan Day! Wear
Your Western clothing

If you're looking for a solution to your early childhood needs, or a program for your school age children, the answer can be as easy as a visit to the Walden School. Your children as young as 6 weeks of age and up to as mature as 12 years have a special place here where a nurturing environment and caring staff help your children grow and flourish.

Our philosophy makes the Walden School a child friendly environment. Parents too will find that being involved with the Walden School is more than a partnership in raising their children.
Open communication with staff and directors is encouraged, and a variety of activities are planned especially to involve parents in special events in their child's school activities. Our emphasis is directly and indirectly focused on children's self esteem through developmentally appropriate skill practice and activities.

Our preschool and pre-kindergarten classes help ready children for their successive years in elementary classes. Our kindergarten program successfully melds phonics and whole language programs to develop strong reading skills; along with our hands on Math Their Way programs, children develop a solid base on which to continue
to learn. Our first through second grades continue to excite children about learning as well as helping to develop strong study skills.
Smaller classes and more one to one contact with their teacher during the day, help children succeed in mastering subject matter.



Don't Forget Go Texan Day at Walden on Friday, February 26th
We will have our annual “Go Texan Day” parade at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate the Trail Riders. Ms. Edith and Mrs. Laticia will again lead the way with the “chuck wagon”. Wear your western gear, if you’ve got it, or come as you are, all are welcome

Soccer and T-ball
Look for information on Soccer and T-ball for the Spring season in our March 2016 Newsletter and at the office bulletin board. Pre-K and Kindergarten will have a t-ball team and 1st, 2nd, & 3rd will have a soccer team. See Mr. Mike before you sign up at the YMCA.
March 6th is the deadline for sign up.

Kindergarten Open House
If your child is currently in Pre- Kindergarten and you are interested in attending our Private Kindergarten, please join Mrs. Paula, and her NAEYC Accredited Kindergarten program.

The meeting is Thursday, Feb. 18, and will promptly begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 6:45 p.m. We will be happy to provide childcare while you attend the meeting. Registration during February is limited to current Walden School students only.

Walden School for Valentine’s Day Parties
Here’s how we do it at Walden School for Valentine’s Day parties. Each child brings enough valentine cards for their classmates. Leave the envelope blank so that your child may pass out his/her own valentines Below is a list of the numbers your child will need for the party. Our party will be Thursday, February 11. Store purchased products may be brought in for the party. We are sorry, but no homemade goodies may be brought. For more information please see the February newsletter.
