    There are several ways to stay informed of events and updates from Whittier Elementary. If you have any questions about the information below, please contact communications.whittierpta@gmail.com


    Whittier Website
    The Whittier website (whittieres.seattleschools.org) is a great source of information. Find news and announcements, upcoming event details and useful links on the homepage; search further and you’ll find school and district details, and PTA information and opportunities. Please take a moment to get to know our school’s website. Also, put our calendar of events on your phone or computer by visiting Whittier Elementary School Calendar Subscription.

    KidMail
    KidMail is any news or notification from the school or PTA that is sent home in your child’s take-home folder. Please check your child’s folder regularly so you don’t miss important information.

    WildChat
    WildChat is a bi-monthly newsletter jointly published by Principal Clark and the PTA and sent via SPS Messenger. You do not need to do anything to subscribe; if your email is on file with the school district, you’ll automatically receive it.

    Class Pages on Facebook
    All grades have dedicated Facebook pages. If you are a Facebook user, please consider joining the group for your child's grade. This is a quick and easy way to communicate with other parents across the grade level (no matter who the teacher is) to get questions answered, share information, or send reminders.
