    Hi Wildcats, 

    Happy New Year! I hope you had a restful, restorative and fun winter break.   

    K and 1st grade families should receive information and a survey about in person learning.   Make sure you take the time to fill it out.  If you have any questions about the survey feel free to reach out to me.  This survey will help us make a plan for a safe return.  

    In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., Whittier’s virtue for January is Social Justice. The racial Equity Team wanted to share some local resources for kids and families. These lists are not comprehensive, however, there are some worthwhile suggestions for books and movies for the whole family that can serve as conversation starters.
