What's happening at Whitt!

A weekly glimpse into what's happening at Whitt Elementary!

This week....

Thank you for all of your caring and giving this week! We brought in over 1200 cans! Next week we will begin to tackle our Wylie Way Christmas. We've adopted 150 families and will have those available next week so that you can shop over thanksgiving break. Know that we are helping WYLIE ISD families as we do this...these are ours!

Peachjar...it's a thing!

Have you signed up to receive flyers from Whitt and Wylie ISD? We are trying to be more aware of how much we send home, and are using some "digital means" to get the messages across! We're very active on Facebook and Twitter, and send home a ton from Peachjar. Thank you for helping us be good stewards of all of our resources!

UIL rock stars!

We had so much fun Thursday night for our UIL competition! Thank you to all who participated, we are SO proud of our students who took a risk, tried out, and competed this year. Brave lil'Wolves! We are also super proud of our students who placed!

Veteran's Day Celebration...speechless.

Tuesday evening was an epic program for our veterans, guests, students, and staff. Under the direction of Mrs. Soudress, we were able to recognize and celebrate the selfless contributions of our veterans. Third grade sang, performed, and moving words were shared. It was a night that few of us in attendance will forget. Below are some pictures of the program. Above all else, the one thing that will forever be etched in my mind was the pride and reverence felt in the cafeteria as our guests stood and were recognized. It was an honor to be a part of this day.

Are you feeling thankful?

To help promote a grateful heart and our Wylie Way core values, Whitt will use the bulletin board across from the library as a place where we can share what we are grateful for up to our Thanksgiving holiday. We are encouraging our teachers to share things they are grateful for each day! We want you to share something too! We will set up a table next week where parents and students can contribute as well. Take a minute to think about what you are thankful for and add it to our board!
