Dear Whittier families,
These are exciting times in education as we begin our transition from our current State Standards to the new Common Core State Standards. These new standards have been designed to prepare our students with 21st century skills, so that by the time they graduate from high school they are ready for college or career. Our focus will continue to be providing your children with the best possible education and a positive school experience in a safe and caring environment.
We as a staff have been very impressed by the high level of parent and community participation that we have seen over the past year. Your involvement in your children’s education is vital to their success at school. We offer several avenues for parent participation, including PTO, School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), and classroom volunteer. Please contact our front office if you have any questions regarding these volunteer opportunities. We look forward to continue meeting all of you and working collaboratively for the benefit of our students.
