Principal's Message

Welcome to Walnut School. We believe all students can learn and will promote student success skills and organizational skills to meet all of our students' needs. Belief, though, is not enough; action must be taken to make great things happen.

Using the four C's: Creativity, Critical thinking, Collaboration and Communication, Walnut students will receive opportunities to excel as 21st century learners.

The Walnut staff believes that by working together with our parents, every child will make progress towards meeting or exceeding their grade level standards.

Our commitment starts in our role as a Professional Learning Community school, where teachers meet on a weekly basis to discuss student progress and work to find ways to ensure that every child learns. It continues in our Positive Behaviors Support and Intervention (PBIS) program that strives to teach and educate our core behaviors of “Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Responsible” on a daily basis.

One of the ways we reward great student behavior is through the use of "Cool Cat Cards, celebrations for great behavior and monthly Student of the Month assemblies. Cool Cat Cards are given for a myriad of reasons to students who show respect, responsibility and safety on campus.

In conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of La Habra, Walnut School has an after school program for homework help and tutoring. We also have GATE program for gifted students with the opportunity to attend GATE class after school and GATE band once per week.

Parent support is an integral part of our community. Walnut School has an active and involved PTA. The PTA, through fundraisers, sponsors field trips, assemblies and our Annual father-daughter and mother-son dances..   We welcome and value your time and support. Our PTA is happy to assist you with volunteer opportunities in our school.

In annual parent surveys, Walnut School consistently receives high marks regarding school climate, curriculum and instruction, parent involvement, and our English learner program.

Please contact me if you have any questions about Walnut School.
