All library books will need to be turned in or paid for by May 18th. If students cannot pay for books at this time, students can read down their fine. Students who take this option can read with a parent and earn $1.00 for every 15 minutes they read.  The form to read down the fine can be picked up from Miss Pipkin in the library or downloaded here. All forms to read down the fine MUST be turned in to Miss Pipkin by the 18th or the book will need to be paid for. Students may log in to the library catalog to see what books they are missing by going to our library page. If you have any questions, please contact Miss Pipkin.

+1 Campaign

This year, the Whittier PTA and ELP Steering Committees want to encourage you to think "+1" any time you are purchasing clothing for your own child.  Find a good back-to-school sale on uniform items? Consider buying one extra piece of clothing or one extra outfit that you can donate.  Are the seasons changing and your child has outgrown a few items that are still in good shape?  Think Whittier first. We will have a bin located in the main office where you can drop off these new (or gently used) uniform items throughout the school year.  Together, our efforts can make a big difference for the children in our Whittier community! 

Whittier T-shirts
