Whittier News: School Tomorrow

August 31, 2020

We Can't Wait to See You!

Dear Whittier Families,


Tomorrow, and this week, will be all about building relationships and connections. Before they go to sleep tonight, here's a story for you student to enjoy. It has a great lesson for all of us for the coming year and for life in general. I can't wait to see what we will do this year! There are no limits that can't be surpassed with imagination and perseverance, and loving support when we need it. And we all need it sometimes.


This Newsletter has several very helpful resources that you should access as you need to. This week, find down below:


  • Whittier Support Center - who should you contact when you need help?
  • Counselor's Corner - with Mrs. Reese and Mrs. Leatherman
  • 4th & 5th Grade Instrumental Music Program Information
  • School Meals Information


I will share video of our annual flag raising ceremony tomorrow afternoon and it will be available through their teacher's Schoology Class for our students.


Thank you all for your continuing support for your student, your partnership with teachers, and your positive and unrelenting determination.


Mr. OhEithir, Principal
