WOW... what a blast! AND what a lot of work the Walnut Grove parents did! (THANK YOU Janet Grell... among many others!) That was SO much fun! I heard the WG friends and community raised over $60,000!!! Could that be true? So grateful!!!

Congratulations to Jon, teachers, parents, and students who participated. After all of the flack you received on Pleasanton Weekly over budget cuts that the district wouldn't take responsibility on, you deserve this Jon!
