Special Note: The Walton Education Foundation hosts an annual fundraiser to support the Classroom Mini-Grants. Save the date for this year’s Apple Classic 5K and 10K at Hammock Bay on February 20, 2016! All teachers who receive a mini-grant are required to either participate or serve as a volunteer at the event. Teachers are also encouraged to serve as the school’s primary contact and champion to pull a team together. The continued success of this event will help fund next year’s mini-grants. Please contact MH Carr – info@waltonedfoundation.org – to volunteer or sign up to be a Walton Education Foundation Champion Teacher!
