Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! Our online registration system will be open on July 24, 2019.

You will need to access the Aeries Parent Portal to verify/update your student information.  If you do not already have an Aeries Parent Portal account, the primary parent contacts will be sent an email with instructions on how to access the portal. Instructions are on each page and can be found on our website at www.walnutcreeksd.org.  (portal access via Chrome or Firefox on a laptop or desktop computer is recommended)  You must have an email address on file to complete online registration. If you don’t have an email address on file, registration will be completed at Welcome Back Day(WBD).

your child's education directly benefits from your donation to wcef

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!  Every year, Buena Vista Elementary relies on donations to WCEF to help fund a well-rounded, competitive education for your child.


Your donation to WCEF helps provide:

  • Salaries for more than 20 specialists and teachers in Art, Music, Science, PE, and Math
  • 36 weeks of Art, Music, & Science classes (TK-5) and PE (1-5)
  • Time for teacher collaboration
  • Professional math coaching for teachers and students

We ask 100% of our families to participate every academic year by making a tax-deductible donation that's right for their budget.



GIVE TODAY OR GIVE MONTHLY.  YOUR GIFT MATTERS.  YOUR CHILD MATTERS.  This year, our suggested ask is a one-time donation of $600 per student, or $50 a month for 12 months (roughly $1.75 a day).  Your participation is the only way we can increase funding from TK-12 and elevate your child's education.


To donate, click above or here.  Thank you for your donation.


Since 1983, WCEF has been investing donations from parents and community members directly back into the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School School to deliver a well-rounded and competitive education for your child.  Visit www.wcefk12.org for more information.
