School-Sponsored Activities

School-Sponsored Activities

We count ourselves lucky to be part of a fabulous school district that works tremendously hard to provide educational enrichment for our children.

While the Whittier School PTA is behind many activities for our active students, other activities are school-sponsored… which means our PTA isn’t the source of info and updates for the latter, but we can point you in the right direction:

Band band participation begins in grade 5
Downers Grove Children’s Choir contact Whittier music teacher Mrs. Coates, scoates@dg58.org
Orchestra orchestra participation begins in grade 4
Super Science Kids contact Wendy Carter, wendylcarter@att.net
Young Rembrandts drawing classes

Many Whittier students also enjoy scouting and/or Indian Guides. The best place to start is most likely talking to other parents in your student’s grade, but we’ll do our best to help if you need it.
