Principal's Message

Dear Caretakers:

Week three! The Eli Whitney Wolf Pack is leading the way to a great year! I-Ready Benchmark Assessments are well underway and students are doing their very best to show their teachers what they know about reading, writing and math.

School picture dates have been set for cohorts A and B. I am working closely with our sister-school to determine a possible date for students in cohort-D to have their school pictures taken. As soon as we can secure a date and site, I will post it in the newsletter and ask PTO to post it as well.

If you are still having technical issues and have visited all of our resources, please reach out to the office and we will try to troubleshoot your concerns.

RE: Fire Drill

Dear Whitney Families,

This morning, our school held a fire drill to help students and staff practice the safety procedures in the event that our building must be evacuated.

Our staff and students did a wonderful job of following our procedures. We appreciate your support with our safety procedures. As always, we strive to make safety our top priority.

Thank you.

Kate Flanaghan
