Welcome to Walnut Creek Elementary School. Our history goes back nearly 100 years. Many don’t know this, but Walnut Creek School was once a High School. Their nickname was the Cardinals. They had one of the State’s best basketball teams during the 1950-51 season. They were eventually knocked off in the Regional Finals. They also had a competitive football team during the early 1950’s.
Fast forward to 2022. We currently start the day with 148 enthusiastic, world changing students. Combine that with a very talented staff and we have the recipe for winning every day. We hang our hats on the Three Pillars that reflect the values of our community.
Do Your Best: Bringing it every day is a winning habit we instill in our students.
Do What’s Right: Not only doing it to the best of your ability, but doing it the “right way.” Integrity is a term that is often used in our buildings. No shortcuts! Take the road less traveled and do it the right way.
Put Others First: This pillar is just as important as the first two pillars. Motivation has to be others centered. What a joy it is to watch our students model this attitude.
We want the very best for our students, staff, and community and are committed to making that a reality.
