Holiday Gift Program
The social work team at Whiteley is thrilled to facilitate another Holiday Gift Program this year! The holidays can be a joyful time but for many it can bring added stress for many reasons. The Holiday Gift Program is designed to alleviate some of that stress for families experiencing financial hardship this year. If you are interested in either receiving a gift for your child or donating donating a gift for a Whiteley student, please complete the form below by Monday November 20th.

E-Learning Practice Day
**PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE OF NOVEMBER 28**
In the event of inclement weather this year, our district will be conducting an eLearning day. This will ensure that our school year ends on our scheduled date and summer construction can begin as scheduled.
On November 28, we will be practicing an eLearning day at school. During this practice day, all students will practice joining their virtual Google Meet link in their classroom so that they have some experience with how they will access the Google Meet link in the event of an eLearning day. On that practice day, all students will bring home their devices, case, and charger including our K-2 students. All students will be expected to complete an online activity on their Chromebook to ensure that they are able to log in to their Chromebook at home and connect to their home WiFi. Here are directions if you need assistance connecting the Chromebook device to your home WiFi.
Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions.
The next PTA meeting will take place on November 14 at 7 PM. Please note the date change! Worried about your kids? No need - free childcare is included! There will be a special treat for everyone who comes. We hope to see you there!
We are still collecting donations through Tuesday, November 14 for Thanksgiving baskets for the Palatine Food Pantry. See attached flyer for donation item requests. Thank you in advance!
