What's Happening at Whitt! 8/16/19

Once a wolf, always a wolf!

What a great first two days!

Wow! You would think that we'd been doing this a lot longer than just two days!

It's been a GREAT two days with your Wolf! thank you for sending us just the cutest and smartest Wolves!

Recess and Heat

Students will not go out for a full recess when the temperature reaches a certain degree. They will have a shortened recess if they go outside at all.

Homework...for parents!!

This has now become a yearly tradition at Whitt! We receive positive feedback from parents and staff alike with this project. We would like to encourage each of you to participate again this year. It is our attempt to do all we can to develop positive and meaningful relationships with our students. It's #thewylieway!

What we would like for each family to do is email or send in a picture to each teacher that your child has with a paragraph about them. Please put things in the paragraph that gives a snapshot of who they are and information that will help the teacher better know them as an individual. I believe it can make a difference.

I hope that you will see the value in this and participate. We believe it will give insight to teachers and speed along the process of getting to know who they really are!

Please try to do this within the next week...we appreciate you!

Big picture


We will start dismissal at our regular times starting on Monday. These Wolves have ROCKED it!

Please note...any changes to the way your child gets home needs to be communicated as early as possible.

**Transportation changes cannot be made after 2pm. Teachers are busy teaching their hearts out and may not check their emails on a real regular basis.

**If parents need to pick up their children early, please do so before 2:30 as to not interfere with dismissal.

**If parents email a teacher about a transportation change, they MUST get a response to verify. If they do not, the parents need to call the office since teachers may not have had the chance to check email.

On the campus office/teacher side:

Mrs. Manning and Mrs. Shahan will make sure to call and talk to the teacher directly or communicate face-to-face to inform teachers of these changes.

****Dismissal Change!****

Beginning next week, we will dismiss INDOORS at temps over 95.

Don't forget!

Beginning Monday, parents will not be allowed past the carpet each morning. We have plenty of coverage/supervision for our Wolves to get down to their classrooms accurately if needed!

We're SOOOOOO glad our Wolves are back!!!
