Walk or Ride To School Week

International Walk To School Day is October 10th.  Our school community extends this event to a week dedicated to encouraging health and fitness by having students walk or ride their bikes to school all week long.

Art entries are due October 15, 2018.


Reflections is a National PTA arts competition.  The competition encourages students to use their creative talents to express themselves through their own original works.


This year's theme is: "Heroes Around Me". Students can create art in six categories: Visual arts, Dance/choreography, Literature, Photography, Film production, and Music composition. All entries will be displayed at the WHPTA Reflections showcase in January, and all entries will also have the opportunity to advance to the district, state, and national levels.

Friends of the Library

Shelly Abellera and Linda Young are our PTA volunteers who serve as Friends of the Library.  To support the library, PTA turns monetary library donations into books during Welcome Back Day in August.  Twice a year, our PTA representatives assist the librarian, Alice Wong, and organize a book fair in the library selling affordable books to our Cougar students and offering opportunities for families to donate specific teacher-requested books to their child's classroom library.  Throughout the rest of the year, PTA volunteers are hard at work in the library and the classroom promoting literacy and assisting our librarian.

Fifth Grade Promotion

June 7, 2019


The 5th grade promotion is a family breakfast, slide show and ceremony to reflect on our Cougar graduates’ journey and accomplishments at Walnut Heights.  It is held on the last day of the school year and is organized, planned and executed by our fourth grade families with financial support from PTA.  Special highlights include a “Who Am I” board highlighting each graduate with a baby picture and a sentimental story written by their parent, as well as a “Good-bye” board listing all of the families that are leaving Walnut Heights.
