Here at Whitman School, we understand that homework can sometimes be a confusing part of schooling. “What is my child’s homework tonight?” “Did my child(ren) write down the entire homework assignment?” “We misplaced our weekly packet – what is my child supposed to be practicing on Wednesday nights?” are questions parents sometimes ask themselves. In order to help streamline these questions, we have now added our “Homework Happenings” section to the website. Parents/guardians can follow the link below and click on their child(ren)’s teacher’s name to find out about their current homework. We all hope you find this new website feature very helpful!
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
Welcome Back! The Whitman team is excited to have our returning and new students and families with us for the 2016-17 school year. Our goal is to provide your child with a rich school experience in a warm and caring environment.
The Whitman community is looking forward to building on the accomplishments of the 2015-16 school year. Several are:
* Being named a WI DPI School of Recognition for three consecutive years! Whitman qualified in the Beating the Odds category.
* Expanding to a K-8 school, with our first eighth grade completion in June.
* Receiving three WI DPI awards—PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) School of Merit; RTI (Response to Intervention) School of Merit in Reading; and RTI School of Merit in Mathematics.
* Being named a GE Demonstration School! Whitman serves as a model K-8 school, implementing the common core curriculum at high levels, with excellent student engagement and learning in all classrooms.
During 2016-17, our school staff will be focusing on several key initiatives including, 1) a continued focus on increasing the academic achievement of all students, with an emphasis on writing across the curriculum and 2) continuing to increase parent/family engagement at Whitman.
I am looking forward to working with you and your children. Please feel free to contact me at 414-604-7700 or at email@example.com if you have any questions.
