11. Why do I need to make an account on the Walden PTO website?

The Walden PTO website is the only form of communication the PTO has with families. Therefore it is very important that you update and complete the registration before the school year begins. You can update your profile, contact information, student information, and directory display preferences at any time. Please update your information as necessary, so the information is always current. Parent #2’s information should be added as contact information and display in the school directory, but parent #2’s email address is not used for login for registering the school directory app.

12. I can’t find where to purchase items for sale.

Log in to the secure portion of the website. Once logged in you will see a “For Sale” tab on the top left side. Click to view the items currently available for sale.

13. How can I confirm what I’ve purchased from the website?

Log in and navigate to the ‘My Info’ tab, there is a button for My Orders. Click the order number to see what was ordered and processed.  


14. I already purchased an app registration key last year, do I need to do it each year?

Yes, you must become a member of the PTO each year to receive registration keys to activate your apps for the current school year.

15. I already have the app, do I need to delete it at the start of the new school year?

Existing users of the app do not need to delete the app.  The app will work until the registration key expires. Once the expiration dates passes, existing users of the app will need a new registration key to activate the app.  Purchasing the PTO Membership generates the registration key.  


16. I am new to Walden, how do I download the app?

Download the app from the Google Play Store or iPhone App Store. Use the keyword “paperlesspto” with no spaces for the app to appear in the results page.

When the three items are entered correctly the app will be activated.

21. How do I get the School Directory App?

When registering a second device, use your primary login email. For example, if your account is under Mom’s email address then Dad must use Mom’s email address when initially registering the app on his device.
