Welcome to our School Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Whittier Elementary School!  We are very passionate about preparing and supporting all students to be college, career, and life ready.  This process requires thoughtful and intentional planning to build visible learning environments that foster our students’ ability to communicate effectively, problem solve complex tasks, and strengthen their decision-making skills as leaders.  The Whittier staff is continuously improving our instructional practices to ensure that we provide students with engaging and relevant learning experiences that are connected to real world learning. We also emphasize the key characteristics of perseverance and grit so that students develop the capacity to work through difficult situations and never give up. These are attributes that will help all students succeed at Whittier and in life.
     
    As a member of our community, you are always welcome to visit our campus, meet our staff, volunteer in classrooms and find out what makes Whittier a special place for children to learn. I am honored and feel very fortunate to be able to serve the Whittier school community of families and staff who are committed to supporting every child in growing socially, emotionally, and academically.
     
    The Whittier staff is committed and dedicated to providing the best educational learning experiences to ensure that every student has the opportunity to learn, grow, explore, laugh, build relationships, and discover their passions in learning about the world. From the students and families of Whittier to our amazingly caring school staff, supportive PTA, and community volunteers, the great people in our Whittier community is what makes Whittier Elementary School a special place.
     
    Thank you for bringing your children to Whittier and trusting us to give them the best possible education. Have a fantastic summer and we will see you in the fall!

    --Tony Wentworth, Principal
