Notes from the Administration
Our 5th Grade promotion ceremony was a smashing success! And the celebration afterwards was also a huge success! Thank you to 5th Grade Celebration Co-Chairs, Mrs. Milsovic and Mrs. Waugaman, the Committee, and all the volunteers.
Celebrity Scoop Night
Come to a family fun night at Rita’s on Monday, June 10th from 4-6pm to see your favorite WHES teachers scooping for fun!
Tell them you’re from Whittier and the school gets a portion of the proceeds!
Plus Rita’s is rolling out a brand new flavor called Apple Berry Blue. Come check it out!
If you or your child has an outstanding balance, overdue or lost materials, their report card will also be held in the office. When you return the lost items or settle any charges in the front office, your child's report card will be given to you.
The mobility of our student population during the summer has increased and once classes have been pre-established it can make placement of new students challenging. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Please ensure that you have updated your proof of residency if you have moved so that the letters make it to your home address.
