Volunteers to Partner with Teachers and Staff

Whitman is looking for 1-2 family volunteers to join the Creative Advantage Grant Committee along with Ms. Dunnett, Ms. Gunn, and Mr. Thomas. The Creative Advantage Grant Committee serves as a bridge to bring the arts into core classes and light the fire of learning. This committee works to connect community arts partners with the teachers at Whitmans so all students can have access to the arts, even if they do not have it as an elective as well as solidify the connections between what students are hearing/learning and how it connects to their life in a fresh and meaningful way. The committee is looking for a family partner who has a passion for art in our school. If you are interested or have questions, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Becky: whitmanptsavolunteer@gmail.com.

Our Whitman MS Black, Brown, and Ethnic Student Union (BBESU) club is being developed by Ms. Debra Deiderichs. We would love to have a family partner with Ms. Debra to help her run this program. If you are interested in this club becoming active, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Becky: whitmanptsavolunteer@gmail.com.

Thank You Volunteers!
