It's almost finished! We were unable to access the Raider Valley Brick wall due to the ongoing construction over the last few months. We have just placed the order for all the bricks that have been sold over the last 8 months and these bricks should be installed in a few weeks.
Based on this order, there appears to be 80 bricks left for sale on the Raider Valley Entrance. When these commemorative bricks are sold, this will be the end of our sales. Don't miss your chance to be a part of this lasting legacy!

Each year the Foundation is able to buy supplies and teaching aids for the teachers and staff at Walton High School. These efforts are completely funded through the Kroger and Publix reward programs. Please click here to find out how to link your purchases to these rewards. Without the help of parents shopping at our local Kroger and Publix stores, we would not be able to offer the Teacher Grants we do each year! Thank you for your support
Call to Conversation, a Foundation initiative to engage with students in thoughtful conversations about issues at Walton began last year and is showing great success in this year's first session. Students are recommended by their teachers to come and be a part of a discussion on various topics recommended by administration. The Foundation provides lunch, and the counseling department facilitates the discussion. The first session is information gathering. After the first meeting, the counselors meet with Administration to share what was learned. At the second meeting, follow up information is provided, and additional questions may be asked.
By supporting the Foundation, you are investing in your child’s education, as well as tomorrow’s leaders and problem solvers. WHSF is a 501c3 organization. Any donation made to the Foundation should qualify as tax-deductible. We appreciate your support!
