Parents

Parent involvement is welcome and encouraged at Walden Academy. We ask families to contribute 40 hours per year to the school; each additional child is another 20 hours. But don't worry: we make it fun for you and your children.

Our parent volunteers do everything from basic maintenance tasks to working in classrooms to serving as yard duties. They've even been known to help teachers prepare lessons.

Please visit the school office any time and stay in touch with the Leadership Team and your student's teacher - see the Administration page for phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
