Walden School Family Game Night 2016
January 23, 2016
Dozens of Walden School families brought their favorite board games to the Toby Hayward Community Room last night. Walden School Parent Guild hosts this annual event to encourage community building and provide a cooperative and collaborative environment for families to socialize together.
Parent volunteers Mark Krause and Cristin O’Callahan organized dinner for all participants. In addition to the main board game room, there was a Bingo Room and a quiet room for more reflective activities like reading together.

And not everything that can be counted, counts.”

At Walden School, all parents are members of the Parent Guild. Walden Director Matt Allio thanked the Parent Guild for creating Family Game Night by noting that the school community thrives because of the extraordinary support of the parents. “We would be less of a school without the volunteer efforts of our parents,” Allio said. He went on to say that the all-school events provided by the Parent Guild, like Family Game Night, contribute to the strong sense of community at Walden.
