As the school year comes to an end, PTO would like to thank all of our students, parents and staff for supporting our efforts in raising money that will help Walker Park continue to grow. As a team, we are proud to say we were able to end the year with $18,000 that will be used to help purchase an electronic sign, 2 shade tents with WP logos (Thank you to Ginny’s Custom Embroidery for helping us out with this.) and providing the starting funds for next years PTO endeavors. PTO is a huge asset for our school and we are calling on all parents to get involved. If you’re interested in volunteering next year, please reach out to us through your teachers or at email@example.com. We hope everyone has a wonderful summer!

Dear Walker Park Parents and Staff,
It has been a wonderful year serving as your PTO President and I am thankful for all of the support and relationships that I’ve had the opportunity to build. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons and professional endeavors, I will not be able to continue to serve in the President role for the 2019-2020 school year. It has been a pleasure to work with such an amazing group of women who serve on our PTO Board, our parents and with our wonderful staff here at Walker Park.
