Holiday House Coat Drive

Our weather is starting to change! You may be cleaning out closets and getting ready for the winter months. If you have any new or gently used winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, or snow pants consider donating them to the Holiday House Coat Drive. Students may bring those items to school and place them in the bucket near the office. We will be accepting donations all week!

3K Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers are needed for our annual 3K Run! We are looking for 15-20 volunteers to help supervise the students safely jogging the 3K event. You must have completed a background check with KUSD, which can be picked up at the Whittier office.
If you are interested in volunteering please sign up at https://goo.gl/forms/vfpu1Sfd0Jb0WuMP2
