||Welcome to Jaguar Day 2012!!
Get your child’s class assignment, find out about all the excitement that is planned for next school year, purchase spirit attire and yearbooks, and contribute to the ever important Jaguar Fund (formerly know as Walnut Acres Education Fund or WAEF). It is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have and sign up for the many volunteer opportunities available in our Walnut Acres community.

Be sure to preview this year’s “All-In-One” form available online. We invite every family to join our “Donor Circle” and be a part of a community that makes the most important investment of all-our kids and their future!!! Those families who contribute any amount to the Jaguar Fund will be recognized in our published Donor List. Any amount makes a difference and is greatly appreciated!!! Participation by every family is the goal.
Based on the approved 2012-2013 budget, PFC income is estimated at $251K, which will come from 7 fundraisers throughout the school year. Total expenditures planned are $309K, and include staff salaries and curriculum support of $247K, which are 80% of our budgeted expenses.
For reference, staff salaries and curriculum support include:
- 6 Instructional Aides, K - 4th grade
- Science Aide, 4 – 5th grade
- Computer Instructor
- Reading Specialist
- Reading Aide
- Computer/printer supplies
- Copier Support

The prevalent budget crisis has made it clear that parents, families, and the local community will need to continue to support our schools and fund the gap left by state budget cuts. We have lead successful fundraising events in the past and many of those will continue, meanwhile, we hope that you will participate in our Jaguar Fund specifically to help support Walnut Acres. Without participation by every family in the Jaguar Fund, in these times of of extreme uncertainty in educational funding, our PFC’s commitments to directly support our kids is at risk.
Special thanks to Patty Galindo and Marita Louw and all of the people who helped prepare for Jaguar Day! And thank you to all of you, our Walnut Acres PFC community, for making this day a success.
The August WAPFC meeting is scheduled for August 22nd at 7pm in the Walnut Acres School library. We are looking forward to seeing you at the PFC meeting and at Jaguar Day on August 23rd!
