Week of May 8th, 2023

WWA's Mission: “Ensure all students are learning at high levels.”

Dear Parents,

Teacher Appreciation Week! May 8-12th

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our WWA teachers are hardworking and have hearts that are dedicated to guiding, influencing, and inspiring their students. It takes a BIG heart to help shape young minds. The influence of a teacher can never be erased! Please take a moment this week to thank your child’s teacher for the countless hours they spend pouring their hearts into their students!

On Tuesday, May 2, 2023 the UPC held a special ceremony recognizing the outstanding efforts and achievements of the recipients in the 2023 United Parent Council Teacher and Staff Appreciation Recognition Program. Many of our WWA staff were recognized from our students & parents in the community. Below you can see some of the staff that participated in the ceremony this week.

Thank you for all of your support of this program and support for your wonderful staff! We appreciate you too!!!

Summer Projects

First we always want to thank our community for supporting our elections here in PVUSD. Since our community members have supported our bond and override elections, we want to keep our community informed on the direct impact it has on our school. The following projects are expected to be taking place at WWA this summer to refresh and replace several needed items within our building. The 2023 Summer Projects at Whispering Wind Academy:

  • New asphalt in all our parking lots - parking lots will be closed this summer beginning 5/29/23

  • All new flooring inside of the building - the building will also be closed for this summer beginning 5/27/23

  • All of the interior of the building is being painted, including the classrooms

  • Security cameras will be installed in the front lobby and two of the main hallways for additional security purposes

  • Our PA system is being upgraded

  • New security doors installed at front office area
