1. Walking Club Donation Request

Thank you to all of the parents who signed up to volunteer for the Walking Club! We had our first “store” of the season and it was a huge success. The kids were incredibly enthusiastic and excited to spend their hard earned “cash”. Unfortunately, they completely wiped out the store! Our PTA supported budget for the Walking Club has been depleted and we still have 5 more store days left for the year. So…we are looking for donations to replenish the store. If your child enjoys the Walking Club and shopping at the store, please check out the Amazon Wishlist and consider donating prizes. They work so hard to earn “dollars” and watching their excitement on store days is absolutely priceless. You can have prizes delivered to me via Amazon or I will coordinate a time to grab them from you.  We will also be happy to take any leftover birthday party swag as well!  Thank you for all of your support!

3. 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.
