Description:

Walnut Elementary School is one of nine elementary, three middle, and two high schools within the Walnut Valley Unified School District. The staff has taken the LEAP through the belief that EVERY student can succeed. Love, Energy, Audacity, and Proof are behind every decision we make to benefit our students. Our school-wide pledge is to invest in their futures by implementing innovative programs, strong interventions, expanded learning opportunities, and technology-enhanced learning. 

 

Our Dual Language Immersion Program is from Kindergarten through the 5th Grade. Classes currently receive instruction in Mandarin 50% of the day and English the other 50%.Teachers embed technology including document cameras, LCD projectors, and SMARTBoards into their classroom instruction. Students use iTouch, iPads, laptops, and student responders throughout their school day. Ongoing fundraising is targeted to purchase additional 1:1 devices in our classrooms.

 

Walnut Elementary broadens student experiences in STEAM with hands-on science, Mind Institute Spatial/Temporal math and keyboarding, performing arts including string, band and general music, and art instruction. We have student-led lunchtime recycling and received a grant from Lowe’s for eco-friendly gardening and composting.
