Whittier Open House

Open House for Whittier parents and students will take place on Thursday, April 28. In order to spread out the number of people inside the building, we are asking that families with last names that begins with A-L attend any time between 6:00 and 6:45pm; then families with last names that begin with M-Z attend any time between 6:45 and 7:30pm. There will not be any formal presentations at this event, it is more of an opportunity to drop in and see what our students have been up to this school year. It is a great opportunity for both students and teachers to showcase some of what has happened this school year. We hope you can attend!
