December Update!

Welcome to December! We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break and are ready for the busy month of December. We want to thank our neighbors, the Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood for donating turkeys for our annual turkey trot. They donated over 120 turkeys this year to ensure students were well fed and had a blast at the Turkey Trot. Gobble, gobble, and THANK YOU - Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood. We appreciate your generosity. It makes such a positive impact on our families.

Also at Whitmore, December seems to be testing season as we assess what students have learned so far this year. We are underway with our DIBELS and Benchmark testing. December also brings us Middle School Selection for fifth graders, basketball season, Father Winter night, Cool Cat Dance Party, and winter break.
