Friday September 9 marked the beginning of the 4th Grade Buddies Peer Mentoring Program, a new program at Whittier Primary School. Under the leadership of Mrs. Sara Ratliff, Kindergarten teacher, and her kindergarten and 4th grade teacher colleagues, all kindergarten and 4th grade students were partnered up to share personal experiences and provide guidance for the kindergarten students. I have included photos of the first meeting and the website, which explains more about the program.
On Friday September 9, Mr. Sell treated all Whittier students and staff with a popsicle to celebrate a great start to the school year. The students and staff have been focused on following the Whittier Way, which is the name for the Whittier PBIS expectations. Click on the link to see some photos of the event.
Students take a walk on the positive side. On Friday August 22, the Whittier students traveled around the building to learn the standards of procedures and expectations throughout the building. The culminating activity was an assembly with music and a brief message from Mrs. O'Malley and Mr. Sell.
On Friday May 20, Whittier Primary had their annual field day event. The students participated in Fun on the Run bouncy houses, Barnyard Discoveries, jump roping, hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, cotton candy, sno cones, and much more. The kids had a lot of fun, and was a great event.
