3. PTA Tasks

PTA Administrative Tasks

1) Enter/Update your Directory information: If you were already in the directory, the student grades for 2017-2018 have already been updated.  If you have no additional updates, no further action is required.  If your contact info has changed, or if you have a new student (incoming kinder or new to Whittier) and would like to be included in the directory, please make necessary updates.  The directory is used for Whittier families only, and can be used to contact classmates and parents.

2) Register for the PTA 2017-2018: If you have not registered for the PTA for this school year please do so ASAP! Registration/dues are required every year. This is where you can sign up to purchase a paper copy of the directory, get the Jaguar Journal, advertise in the directory, make an Angel Donation, and/or sign up to get more involved in the various Whittier committees and events. If you’d like a paper form or if you have ANY questions, please contact Ann Russell at AnnKHRussell@yahoo.com.

 3) Join our Facebook page: This is a great way to connect with other Whittier familes and send quick messages and get updates.
