Good news! Due to the increased demand for seats at Whittier, the school is having an additional 2nd grade class next year. So, Whittier will have two Kindergartens, two 1st grades, two 2nd grades with the 3rd-8th grades remaining at one class per grade level for next year.
WAY TO GO, WHITTIER 3rd GRADERS!
Maintaining a continued streak of high scores, Whittier’s 3rd graders tested 67% Proficient in reading, the highest scores among the Title 1 schools in our Near Northeast community.
What is especially exciting is that 0% of Whittier’s 3rd graders tested Unsatisfactory in Reading, Writing AND Math – NO failing students – a feat accomplished by only four other DPS schools: Polaris, Cory, Odyssey & Steck. Whittier was the only Title 1 school to accomplish this. We are so proud of you, Whittier 3rd graders!
WALK FOR WHITTIER – A HUGE SUCCESS!
Even though the threats of thunderstorms pulled us inside, the 5th annual Walk for Whittier & Family Fun Night on May 16th was a blast! Hundreds of Whittier families and community members filled the place and with the amazing bookends of the Montbello Drumline launching our Walk and Streetside Dance closing out our carnival, the atmosphere was electric!
Our goal was to raise $11,000…and we raised $14,000. We are so thrilled to know that Whittier will have music again next year and that our students will have durable homework folders & some classroom supplies.
