Welcome back to school! It is exciting to begin the 2017- 2018 school year. My goal is to continue with the positive foundations implemented on campus. We are a wonderful school and you make us even better! The focus here is for every child to grow and learn to all they can be. Our teachers set very high academic standards and are also thoroughly focused on nurturing your child through the ups and downs of the many learning experiences.
I feel fortunate to become part of a school culture focused on student learning, a commitment to high expectations, innovation and collaboration. It is my intent to continue to carry out these important traditions and practices. I would like to build on the same reputation and invite you to help us determine what is best for your child by attending parent conferences, academic events, and volunteering to help on campus.
As students begin to fall into the “school” routine, I want to encourage parents to become familiar with the classroom, teacher and the school staff. Your child’s teacher is a wonderful source of information if you have questions about your child’s academic and/or social progress. Remember the education of your child is a two-way street. If you have family events and or issues that you feel might affect your child, please alert someone on campus. The more that you can share with the school the better we can assist your child and your family. It is very important for parents to be ever involved with your child’s school.
I hope that you will find your year at Whitaker to be excellent and productive one for your family. Your school packet has a lot of information for you. Please return all the colored papers to your child’s teacher.
Please contact me at school at (915) 236- 6275 or come by if I can be of service. We are Whitaker Rainbows!
Have a wonderful school year!
