Dear Walden Families,
Congratulations to the sixth grade Sun Bears and thank you, everyone, for the wonderful school year.
As we move into summer, I'd like to share an excerpt of the message that I shared with our Class of 2018 yesterday, as I think it rings true for all of us:
"Parents, I want to take a moment to thank all of you for choosing Walden as the place that your child will learn, grow, and spend their childhood. Your tuition combined with your countless hours of volunteering for Hot Lunch, the Halloween Carnival, GOLD committee, graphic design, the Board of Trustees, WE committee, the Spring Fundraiser, Green Committee, Big Help and room parenting, not to mention your commitment to giving to the Walden Fund year after year has shaped your child's experience, and we honestly couldn't have done it without you.
All of us here very much remember the young children who started school looking somewhat overwhelmed by the whole experience. Some of our graduates will share those memories with us today and they will also share the important lessons they have learned during their time here.
Each of them has grown in a way that they are proud of. This is clear. They arrive here at graduation as unique individuals that have chosen to be a community, and today we get to send them off to middle school with our continued support."
Have a wonderful summer and see you all in the fall,
Head of School
