My Dear Whittier Families,
Thank you for a fantastic school year. Your children have done excellent work and have grown so much in various ways. I would like to share some highlights of what we accomplished as a school, updates on our staffing, and reminders for next school year.
·We submitted our application to become schoolwide title 1 program.
·All teachers completed 2 years of LETRS training to further their instructional reading skills.
·Cathy Bigler was named SLCSD 2024 Teacher of the Year.
·Whittier’s Mission and Vision has been created. The staff and administration have also created their collective agreements that supports the mission and vision.
·The first year of our schoolwide literacy intervention program was a success and we saw significant growth in literacy.
· ELP Steering committee has been dissolved. We have one PTA that advocates for the needs of all our Whittier students.
·3 student teachers completed their student teaching experiences under the mentorship of our faculty members.
·After school chess and soccer opportunities were implemented.
·The following faculty and staff will not be returning to Whittier next year: Ms. Dalton, Ms. Kate, Ms. Mindee, Ms. Johnson, and Ms. MacLennan. We wish them all the best in their new adventures!
