All library books will need to be turned in or paid for by May 19th. 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 19th 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.

Farewell to Ms. Parker and welcome our new Principal Dr. Proffit

Dear Whittier Staff and Community,

Ms. Parker will be retiring from the Salt Lake City School District this month. Her last day at Whittier Elementary will be December 23, 2016. I would like to thank Ms. Parker for her service to Whittier Elementary and the Salt Lake City School District. She has served in a variety of leadership positions in the Salt Lake City School District. Ms. Parker's commitment to students and staff is appreciated. She will be missed.

I would like to invite you to meet the new Whittier Elementary principal, Dr. Greg Proffit, on Friday, December 16, 2016, from 7:00-9:00am., in the Whittier gymThis is a change from the original location. Stop by for a cup of coffee or cocoa and meet your new principal. I am excited for you to meet Dr. Proffit. Dr. Proffit has served as a Reading/Language Arts teacher, an assistant principal, and a principal in Texas and Utah. He most recently served as an administrator in the Park City School District. Dr. Proffit is a life-long leader who is devoted to helping teachers improve their instruction and also helping students excel in the classroom. He is a collaborative leader who will listen to all stakeholders, be visible at Whittier Elementary and in the community, and focus on the goals of the school and community. I am confident that Dr. Proffit will continue the work the Ms. Parker has started and propel Whittier Elementary to the next level.

I would like to thank the interview committee, comprised of teachers, staff, parents, and community members, who was tasked with screening applications and interviewing candidates. The committee embraces the challenge and should be commended for their commitment and dedication to Whittier Elementary.

Again, thank you to Ms. Parker for her service and I am to see you on December 16th and have you meet Dr. Proffit.

Yours in education,
Lexi Cunningham, Ed.D.

Don’t forget to apply for free/reduced lunch during the process so your child’s meals are covered from the first day of school!

+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
