Welcome to our School Principal's Message

  • Thank you Whittier Elementary School families for an outstanding 2016-17 school year. 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.

    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. We are passionate and committed to inspiring all students to be great by making every day at Whittier engaging, meaningful, and relevant to their lives.

    At Whittier, we are focused on creating an innovative learning culture with the use of technology to support and enhance student learning opportunities while embedding problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skills. We focus on creating highly engaging lessons that allow students to develop passion, purpose, and perseverance with their learning every day to prepare them to be college and career ready in an ever changing world.

    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.
    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!
