1. Spring Fundraiser @ Suburbanite Bowl

Save the date on your calendar for the Spring Fundraiser at Suburbanite Bowl on Friday, February, 22nd!  Registration information will be available online and in backpack mail in the next few weeks.  Volunteers to help make the event a success will be needed.  Questions?  Want to volunteer?  Email Adam Hill at ahill_10@yahoo.com.


2. Host a Whittier Experience!

Looking for a way to support the PTA? Host a Whittier experience! Contact Melissa Rausch if you are interested in hosting an experience for the spring fundraiser happening on February 22nd! Melissarausch@sbcglobal.net

Whittier Experiences are a crucial component to PTA fundraising that offers students and families an opportunity to sign up for fun events throughout the year! Past experiences include Running Club, After School Kickball, The Amazing Race, Movie Night and Cake Decorating.

Host families come up with an idea, and once approved they plan, organize and fund the event. The PTA Experiences Committee will promote the event at the Spring fundraiser and Whittier families will sign up. All registration fees for the event go to the PTA to help provide the amazing programs students enjoy all year long!  Specifically we are raising funds this year to update the Jaguay Jungle with new mats and whiteboards.

Still have questions? Ask a veteran Whittier Family for details… or better yet, contact Melissa Rausch and she can give you the scoop! Melissarausch@sbcglobal.net
