    Whittier Ways to Stay Informed

    There are several ways to stay informed about the latest news and events from Whittier Elementary.  Since your family is enrolled at Whittier, you are automatically receiving (email and phone) correspondence from school administration.  

    If you haven’t been receiving communication from the school and the district, please reach out to the front office at office.whittier@seattleschools.org to verify that your emails and phone numbers are listed correctly.

    Whittier Website & Calendar

    The Whittier website (whittieres.seattleschools.org) is the main resource for school information. Find school news and announcements, remote learning resources, log-in instructions for various school platforms and other useful links on the homepage. 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.

    The Whittier Wildchat is a bi-monthly newsletter jointly published by Principal Clark 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.  

    Join Konstella to connect with parents in your child’s classroom and get the latest Whittier PTA News. If you are interested in signing up for a Volunteer opportunity, it will be posted on Konstella.

    Whittier PTA website – The PTA website is your source for the latest in PTA news and is linked directly to Konstella. The PTA has their Spirit Gear web store linked if you are interested in some Whittier merchandise! The PTA also tweets important PTA related school news which is published here as well. You can find The PTA website under “Get Involved” from the Whittier Elementary homepage.

    If you have any questions or are not sure who to contact; reach out to the PTA at communications.whittierpta@gmail.com.

    Let’s get social!

    Consider joining one of Whittier’s Facebook groups.  Many times there are grade specific efforts taking place and this has been a good way to get questions answered quickly across larger “by grade” parent groups.
