1. Order Whittier Spirit Wear
Field Day is held to celebrate all of the students’ accomplishments throughout the school year and the beginning of summer break.

Red – Kindergarten
Orange – 1st Grade
Royal Blue – 2nd Grade
Kelly Green – 3rd Grade
Lime Green – 4th Grade
Purple – 5th Grade
Aquatic Blue – 6th Grade
There are other options, as well, including flannel pants and hoodies. Check out the website below to place your order!
2. LRC Subscriptions
We are looking for some families to make a worthwhile contribution to the LRC at Whittier by sponsoring a magazine subscription. Magazines provide a unique opportunity to get children interested in reading while developing the critical academic skills they will need in the years to come. The selection of magazines is wide ranging and will certainly appeal to boys and girls of all ages and interests.
With parent contributions we will receive a full year of issues in the LRC. Your help is making this valuable resource a part of our kids’ education and is greatly appreciated. Interested families can review the list of magazines and subscription rates here and send a check (payable to Whittier PTA) to Carla Giannelli via backpack mail.
LRC Subscriptions – updated!
