Whitehall Wonders

October 2020

We are so proud of how our students have adjusted to the changes for this current school year. We are teaching them the 3 W's to help keep them safe. The 3 W's are:

1. Wear a Mask

2. Watch Your Distance

3. Wash Your Hands

Mask Up

Students must have a mask on before getting on the school bus or existing the car. If you need extra masks for your child, they can purchased at the school for $2 each.

Student Cell Phones

Elementary school students are not allowed to have cell phones at school. Please make sure your child keeps all cell phone devices and accessories at home. If a child brings a cell phone or device to school, the phone or device will be taken by administration and a parent will have to come to school to pick it up.

Parent Corner-Estimation Stations

Estimation Stations

Help your youngster practice estimating with this ongoing family guessing contest.

  • How many beans are in the jar?
  • Keep a clear container, such as an empty water bottle or juice jar, on your kitchen counter. Each week, fill it with something different from your pantry (uncooked beans, nuts, mini pretzels).
  • Have family members guess the amount in the jar.
  • Finally, empty the jar and count the objects together.
  • The person who comes closest decides what goes into the container next week.

Estimation practice will benefit all students in your home.
