Our New Year Ahead

Whitaker Families,

I would like to begin by thanking all the supporters of the Tree of Giving and Whitaker Backpack food program. Your generosity rippled throughout the county. Thanks for making a difference for children and families during the holiday season.

Lots of learning and experiences are lined up for the new year. Please read through this newsletter for what's coming. In particular, information for fifth graders on middle school happenings.

The 4th grade musical performance is airing at 10:00 am each morning on Cable 2 through January 5th. Check it out.

Keep up with us on the WES website calendar and Twitter @WhitakerWSFCS.

Yours in learning,

Mrs. Creasy
