The Whitesides Post

January 9th - 15th

Welcome 2023!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. As we settle into January, we keep our focus on continued growth and learning. Regular attendance is critical for your child's success. It is also important that they arrive to school on time. Thank you for helping with this and for all that you do to support your child in their learning journey.
