Happy Summer Break!


Hello Families!

June 23, 2023

It has been such a pleasure to be your Principal this year, and I’m looking forward to another great year in 2023-24! We are already hard at work planning events for next year, and many of our teachers were at district professional development this week, getting ready for next year’s ELA and Math instruction. Our students showed so much growth this year, and we are looking forward to continuing that growth next year!

Thank you so much for your continued involvement and support of your children. We truly have the best community here at Whitman!
