Whittier Weekly: December 2, 2014

“Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.”       – Dave Barry

We hope you had a wonderful (and filling!) Thanksgiving weekend.  Now only three more weeks of school (and shopping!) before winter break arrives.

Thank you to all who have taken Whittier Winter Mittens and have kept the recipients in mind when out on their holiday shopping adventures.  It is the generosity of the Whittier community that makes it such a special place.

Please note that due to the hectic nature of the holiday season, there WILL NOT be a PTA meeting in December.  The next PTA meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 20, 2015.

We are so fortunate to have a wonderful Whittier Community. Thank you!

Rita Brezina & Valerie Hardy (PTA Co-Presidents)

Tiffany Kuelthau & Debbie Levinthal (PTA Co-Vice Presidents)

Amy Ihde  (PTA Secretary)

Corinne Potter (PTA Treasurer)

Market Day

Thank you to everyone who ordered from Market Day this month!  Pick-up is this Thursday, Dec. 4 from 1:45 to 2:45 in the Jaguar Jungle.  If you are unable to make it at this time, please let us know and we will be happy to store your items in the freezer at school. We just ask that you please pay in advance so we do not have to chase down any late payments or take funds from our profits.  As always, your Market Day business is greatly appreciated!  If you have any questions, please contact Kellie Miller at (812) 204-4384 or Amy Gassen at (630) 971-0689.
