Principal's Message

My Dear Whittier Families,

This school year flew by bringing us to the end of another milestone. Your child(ren) have developed and solidified grade level academic and socio-emotional skills in a traditional school setting. Our teachers and support staff worked hard to provide students with the differentiated learning opportunities. We were able to bring our community together for three major events-the Trunk-or-Treat, STEAM Night, and Art Night. None of this could be done without your support. 

I am humbled and grateful to have the opportunity to work with this exceptional community. Thank you for entrusting your child(ren) to us. Not only did they learn, but we have all learned something new from each one of them. We have learned more about kindness, patience, resilience, and genuinely enjoying the little things in life. 

Starting school year 2022-23:

  • Whittier will no longer be a uniform school. We have adopted general district dress code: Policy S-5
  • YEF Music program will not be returning to Whittier but we will still provide our students with BTS Art K-6th grades, and district music for 4th-6th grades. We are working on an additional person to fill our specials block for K-3.
  • Ms. Kat, Mr. Eggington, Ms. Marley, Ms. Talina, Ms. Melanie, and Ms. Sheila are moving on to new adventures. We appreciate all they have done for our community and will miss them.

Now for your summer homework Whittier Wolves-please read at least 15 minutes a day, chat with your grown-ups about what you have read, continue practicing your words of the week, find a daily thing that makes you smile and come tell me about it when we return to school in August. 

I look forward to seeing everyone at Back-to-School night on August 29th from 5-7 PM. The first day of school is August 30th. 

Over and out!

In solidarity,

Dr. Deleon
