Message from the Principal

Our School is Beautiful and is only getting BETTER! We have exciting improvements happening at Whispering Pines. The Multi-purpose room (gym) is making great progress and we will also be part of the next bond to expand and upgrade our playground equipment. If the BOND passes we will have a beautiful pirate ship theme on the other side of our playground next to the pavilion along with an outdoor learning space and an outdoor eating space. Check out this district initiative with these slides. Right now we are raising funds to upgrade our atriums with beautiful outdoor furniture and shade to create more learning areas that will utilized protected and enclosed outdoor space.
