What a great start to the school year!

As we quickly move past our first full week of school, I can't tell you how pleased I am with the start of the 2017-2018 school year at Whittier. The students have learned many new routines in their classroom and are doing very well! I want to commend our entire staff for their hard work, preparation and commitment to kicking off the new school year with great success. Thank you also to our families for helping to make this such a positive start to the school year!

School Portraits

Our annual school portraits will be taken on September 19th, 2017. All students will have their picture taken for the yearbook and school files. There is no need to send money in now. You will receive proofs and pricing information from your child's session. Be sure to dress your best!

Learning Sign Language Club


Mrs. Slawson is offering a Sing Language Club. This club will offer students the opportunity to learn basic sign language. This includes: fingerspelling the alphabet, counting to twenty, simple conversation words and phrases, common words in categories (food, colors, feelings, animals, sports, and school related words), and a song!


The Sign Language Club will be open to third and fourth graders at Whittier. The maximum for the class will be 20. (The first 20 accepted)


Sign Language Club will take place on Mondays in October, after school from 2:25-3:15 (Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23) in Mrs. Chris Slawson’s classroom, room. 141. A sign up sheet is coming home in the Thursday folder or is available in our Whittier Back Pack at http://whittier.kusd.edu/parent-involvement/whittier-backpack-notes/
