What's happening at Whitt!

A weekly glimpse into what's happening at Whitt Elementary!

This week....

We conserved energy this week! Yes we went green with our 5 Day Power Challenge! Here is list of things we did to heighten our awareness of the need for energy conservation:

5 Day Power Challenge

  • Monday- Wore Green!
  • ·Tuesday- Turned up! Our classrooms were 1 degree warmer! This saved 4-8% of energy being used.
  • Wednesday- Green Lunch Day!- Cold lunches were served the cafeteria!
  • Thursday-Lights Out Day!- We tried using natural light as much as possible.
  • Friday- Free choice!- Brainstormed new ways to conserve!



Whitt Wolves also reflected on our kuleana, our responsibility! We had a fun, energetic assembly on Wednesday to help us remember how we show kuleana everyday. It was fun to see what talented dancers we have among our students and staff!



Remember our UIL practices started this week and will continue each Tuesday from 2:30-3:20 through November 3rd.

It's fall ya'll! bring on the delicious baked goodies!

Parent Updates

We're Glad You Asked.......

From the nurse.....

Parents,

As you clean out your children’s closets, I could use all sizes of pants, capris & shorts (boys and girls) for the nurse's office. Thank you!

Attendance

Set a good example for your child. Show your child that attendance matters to you and that you will not allow absences unless they are truly sick.....Well Wolves belong at school. We love them and want them here!


Fair Day!

No school on Monday, October 5th! It's time to visit the fair! Each year your child received a complementary ticket to the State Fair of Texas. These tickets were sent home in your child's Thursday folder last week! Look for those tickets and enjoy your day at the fair!
