Dear Walden Lake Families:
On behalf of the Walden Lake Elementary PTA, I’d like to welcome you to the 2014-2105 school year! Whether you are new to Walden Lake Elementary or have a returning student(s), we are excited for the school year ahead and look forward to a great partnership. Congratulations are in order for Walden Lake Elementary achieving an “A” grade for the 2013-2014 year!
The purpose of the PTA is to support the faculty, staff, parents and especially our students. In order for the PTA to be effective, we will need the support and involvement of our parents and teachers. Joining PTA helps to achieve the goals set by our administration and teachers to make sure our school continues to provide the best educational experience for your child. When you join not only do you become a member of our local PTA but you are also a member of the Florida PTA and National PTA, which is the largest child advocacy program in United States. DID YOU KNOW WALDEN LAKE PTA helps provide a multitude of items, activities and programs for our school, including but not limited to:
* New Technology * Academic Awards
* Covered Eagle Pavilion * All Pro Dads
* Art, Music, PE & Safety Patrol Supplies * Teacher Appreciation
* Guest Speakers * Spirit Nights
* Supplies for School Nurse * Field Day Equipment
* Eagle Extravaganza * Produces School Yearbook
* Program Assemblies During School Year
* Purchases Student Agendas for Grades 1-5
A PTA membership cost is $5 per person and includes a school magnet, discounts to various businesses and voting rights during open PTA meetings. Again this year we’d like to have 100% participation. If you haven’t already, I encourage all of our families to take the time to join. You can do so by completing the form in the 1st day packets or the print-out below.
Make sure you like us on Facebook (Walden Lake PTA) and check out our website WaldenLakePTA.com for news, events and volunteer opportunities. I look forward to working with all of you in the coming school year. Thank you for your continued support and involvement with our school and your children.

Walden Lake Elementary PTA, President
