Dear Walden Families,

I hope you all received my video invitation yesterday because Walden's only all-school parent party and biggest Parent Guild fundraiser of the year is just around the corner! I hope you will be able to join the entire Walden community on Saturday, May 19, at 6:00 p.m. at the Masonic Temple to celebrate the role Walden plays in nurturing our students' sense of wonder, curiosity, and imagination.

There will be a live auction with fantastic items to bid on such as four nights in a stunning mid-century modern home in Palm Springs, a unique skateboarding experience for four kids, a special behind-the-scenes tour and overnight at the Palomar Observatory, the popular Overnight at Walden the night of our May Open House, and more! Click here to view all the items.

If you haven't done so already, please register at waldenschool.net/rsvp today. The Gala Committee is finalizing catering plans for the delicious dinner that evening, so please make sure to complete your plans by the registration deadline tomorrow, May 11.

I have also heard from the Gala Chairs that they are looking for volunteers to help set up what has promised to be a visually stunning and magical experience. Click here to give everything from 15 minutes to 5 hours to help.

This year's Gala team has done an amazing job lining up vendors and putting together a fantastic program for us. Please help them bring it all together with some set-up, event, and tear-down support, and, most importantly, your attendance to make it a WONDERful night (sorry, I couldn't help it). If you have any questions you can contact the Gala Co-Chairs: Adam Rosen and Daria Yudacufski..

And while you're online, head over to waldenschool.net/auctionto bid on the whole list of items all in support of Walden. You can find deals, excursions, and adventures with some Walden faculty and staff. Please bid high and bid often!

Have a lovely weekend,
