6th Grade Welcome Night
Join us for the 6th Grade Student/Parent Welcome Night on Tuesday, August 26 from 6-7pm. Festivities will begin promptly at 6:00pm. Students will be able to pick up their class schedule for the new school year, meet teachers and find out important information about transitioning to middle school. Schedule pick up begins 5:45pm in the south parking lot. Don't miss it! 

This night is geared towards 6th grade students, but 7th & 8th grade students new to Whitman are welcome to come pick up their schedules that evening as well and locate their classrooms. 

The class schedules for students who attended during the 2013-14 school year will be mailed on Wednesday, August 27 (along with any 6th grade student unable to attend the Tuesday event). You will not be able to pick up your schedule at this event!

Wildcats Read List for 2014-2015 makes great summer reading!
The Wildcats Read list for 2014-2015 is available online hereYou'll find fifty books chosen to appeal to the wide variety of reading levels and interests of Whitman students. The goal is to have every student and staff member read at least one book from the list each school year, and a great way to do that is to read one (or more) over the summer! When school starts, students can tell Ms. Gustafson or Ms. Bowman about what they read over the summer to be entered in the prize drawings held each month during the school year. All the titles are available at the public library.
