Walden School families brought their favorite board games to share with other families in the Toby Hayward Community Room. This annual free event is fun for all ages, and included dinner sponsored by Walden School Parent Guild.

Educators and parents know that important life lessons are learned and practiced while playing board games. From learning to take turns, to analyzing upcoming options, to respectfully and gracefully winning and losing – many habits valued in society can be instilled in children through board games.

Special thanks to this year’s organizers, Mark and Kristin!
