There are many opportunities for our students to continue to practice their academic skills during the summer. We hope you are able to take advantage of these opportunities.
I have attached three wonderful pieces of information regarding this summer.
The first attachment is about a FREE myON reader summer program this year. Please take the time to look into this great opportunity.
The second attachment contains all of the summer learning online opportunities for our students.
The last attachment is our Whittier Reading Log. Remember to read and bring it back to school the first day of school in the fall.
We do not have a newsletter this week. But we do have a few announcements.
1. Remember that the students have school all day on Monday and Tuesday.
2. Message from Mrs. Pfarr:
IMPORTANT – FINAL TALENT SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT
The dress rehearsal for the Spring Talent Show is after school on Monday starting at 3:30 in the multi purpose. ALL STUDENTS IN THE SHOW MUST BE THERE! We will run the show from start to finish with all acts performing in the correct order. Students are free to leave after they are done doing their act. Letters about this reheasal were given to all students this past Wednesday, so everyone should be aware of this.
Good Evening, Whittier Families,
I have attached our 2nd Annual Summer Reading Challenge. We hope that our students will participate and read this summer.
We hope to set a new record this summer!
We will also be sending this home in this week’s Thursday Folders.
Good Morning, Whittier Community,
You will be receiving our newsletter later this morning, but I wanted to send this important communication from our PTA separately.
We are very grateful for all of the work that our PTA did this year for our students and staff. This important letter oulines the successes this year, but more importantly it explains our plans for suspending our Golf Outing this year and our passionate reason why.
After you read the letter, we hope you will decide to join all of us on Saturday, June 8th.
Thank you for you support,
Good Evening, Whittier Families,
I wanted to share with you that our start and end times will be changing for next year.
Whittier will start at 7:25 AM next year with a release time of 2:25 PM, Monday through Thursday and Friday release time of 11:10 AM.
We will send Kid’s Castle Daycare information home in this upcoming week’s newsletter.
