1. Spanish/French Registration Open – NEED CLASS VOLUNTEER = FREE TUITION!

Spanish class is still in need for an in-class parent volunteer!  Your child will receive FREE TUITION ($290 value) for your time! Our school requires a parent to be present for all after school programs and we cannot offer Spanish if we do not have a volunteer.  Knowledge of the language is not required at all- you are there to provide help with attendance and monitoring. Contact Rachel Carrero at rachel.carrero@gmail.com if interested in volunteering or for any other questions.

Registration for both FRENCH and SPANISH classes is still open!

2. Review School Directory Info

LAST CHANCE to review your personal directory information!
Please make sure your information is correct!  Any updates do need to be made via the website ( https://www.directoryspot.net/), not on the app.  While any changes made will appear immediately in the app and online, the deadline for any corrections to be included in the printed directory has passed and the directory will be printed in the next week or so.  Email Ann Russell at AnnKHerrick@yahoo.com if you need help or have questions.

3. District Strategic Plan Volunteers Needed

District 58 is in need of PTA members to consider serving on a district committee or council in support of our Strategic Plan efforts this year.  These working groups provide an engaging yet informal opportunity for parents to provide input and feedback critical to the district’s Strategic Plan success.  There is specifically a need for parents to join the Superintendent’s Community Advisory Council. Click here to learn more information about each Strategic Plan working group, including the group descriptions and meeting schedules. Interested in joining a Strategic Plan working group or a Board of Education committee?  Contact Megan Hewitt at mhewitt@dg58.org

4. Spirit Wear

The Whittier Spirit Wear website is now open through October 12th.  Click here to place your spirit wear order.  Items that are available are listed on this site.  Each grade-level has a different color “choose KIND” t-shirt to choose from.  These shirts can also be worn on Field Day in May, as these are the grade-level colors for this school year.  We hope you find something you like.  Spirit Wear can be worn on our weekly Friday Whittier Spirit Days.

5. Reading Games Team Registration Open
