From Mrs. Lay

Happy New Year! I hope that your holidays were joyful and restful. As I reflect on 2018 and set goals for 2019 I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work with your children and family at Whiteside Elementary. I look forward to the many exciting learning opportunities that the new year brings. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and check out our new Google parent calendar to keep up with all things Whiteside. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Got Legos?

We are working on creating a mobile LEGO wall at Whiteside. If you have LEGOs that your child has outgrown and you would love to donate, we will gratefully take any hand-me-downs. Just drop them off at the school library or let us know, and we will gladly come pick them up. Thank you so much! (The photo is of a Lego board at another school and our inspiration.)
