The true essence of Walden shone through on this tremendous day, thanks to our teacher organizers, lovely students, and supportive parents! Students created poems of varied types, illustrated and helped display each, and then presented in true coffee house fashion! What a wonderful morning to be in the Walden family.
Did you know the Walden kids have been busy this school year walking to places like the Liberty Bell, the Boardwalk, the Empire State Building and Niagara Falls?
For the second year, Walden launched an exercise initiative in September called “Walk with Walden” designed to encourage students to become more active by tracking their exercise activity on a scorecard. Every gym class started with students doing laps around the field or gym. Every mile the kids completed in gym class - or outside the class with sports activities – was tracked on their scorecard. Significant milestones were marked by destinations on their card, i.e. – they had to walk 20 miles to get to the Liberty Bell and almost 400 miles to get to Niagara Falls.
Collectively, students in Kindergarten through 8th grade have walked almost 7,000 miles since September!
Walden students, from the youngest to oldest, enthusiastically performed at the annual Spring Concert! From "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" to Jack Johnson's "Upside Down" to "September" by Earth, Wind, and Fire (all student requests!), our kids sang their hearts out.
We love our mothers and were honored to have so many join us for the Mother's Mornings! Happy Mother's Day!
Walden had a party! Thank you so much to every supporter of BSC 2016, whether you attended, donated, bid, or sponsored! Special appreciation goes out to our wonderful committee that made this a grand event. Each one of you truly made the night an absolute success!
