We hope that you all enjoyed the fun filled summer days, and it’s with great enthusiasm that we invite you to get ready for another exciting and successful school year. Welcome back to our returning families. To our new families, welcome to the Whittier community; we look forward to helping you get involved in your child’s school life!
With your support we can continue to make Whittier Elementary School academically challenging and nurturing for our children. Whittier Elementary is a community based on dedicated parent involvement. Your contribution, whether it’s your time, knowledge or resources makes a difference. We personally invite you to become an involved member of the Whittier PTA. Parents can volunteer in a number of ways; chaperoning a field trip, helping out in your child’s classroom, supervising lunch and recess, volunteering in the LRC, just to name a few. Another way you can help out is by joining the Whittier PTA group to provide additional help and resources for the benefit of our children. Thank you for helping in any way that you can, and showing your children the importance you place in their education!
We look forward to getting to know your family. We hope that you join us for one of our PTA meetings beginning with our first meeting on Sept. 20th at 7 pm. We hold five meetings throughout the school year. We offer free babysitting at our PTA meetings, should that be a concern.
2016-2017 School Year General PTA Meetings:
September 20th October 18th January 17th March 21st May 16th
