    Dear Wildcat Families: 

    Yesterday we were treated to a live performance by Taproot Theater.  The performance allows us to have essential conversations with students on how to make our school a respectful and safe place to learn and grow.  Yesterday we learned it was all of our responsibility to Recognize, Report and Refuse Bullying. Taproot Theater congratulated our students for being an amazing audience. At the end of the show the cast joined Ms. Steph and the students in singing "Paws Up For Wildcats!"   I want to thank our PTA for supporting yesterday's experience and many others that allow our students to have amazing learning experiences throughout the year.

    Whittier is a school that is full of opportunities for everyone who walks through our doors.  This amazing school is filled with fantastic kids and a tremendous staff – all supported, of course, by families like yours. 

    The Whittier PTA has been a tremendous force in connecting our community with our school – and The Annual Give Campaign is their primary tool to make bigger and better things happen. There’s so many ways you can help: volunteering, joining the PTA, and donating online or dropping off your contribution in the school office by October 22.Together, our goal is that every student, every teacher, and every family will benefit from your support.

    From classroom support (teacher supplies, increased access to math tutors and our literacy specialist) to school-wide initiatives (more time with our librarian, nurse, and specialists – and more laptops for instructional use) to fun stuff (playground improvements, movie and game nights, and assemblies), Wildcat families are fueling our school. (And that’s just a handful of the many family-funded projects at Whittier.) 

    Responsibility, respect, and safety are the foundation of what it means to be a Wildcat, and from that foundation, we build a community based on learning and opportunity. I am so proud to be a part of this community – and I am delighted that you are an essential part of it as well.

    Paws up for Wildcats!
