Welcome back! The Whitman team is excited to have our returning and new students and families with us for the 2019-20 school year. Our goal is to provide your child with a strong academic foundation, in a caring school environment.
I am very excited to be returning to Walt Whitman School and am looking forward to an energetic and enriching year.
At Walt Whitman School, we envision a rigorous, standards-based curriculum where all students will demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and mindset to perform academically at or above their grade level in all disciplines. Every day, every student will engage in learning that will prepare them for success in post-secondary education, future careers, and life-long learning. This is the foundation we will use to guide our instruction during the year.
We are excited to open our new Whitman Wonder Lab – a makerspace/science lab this school year. It is a space for exploring, creating, making, learning, and sharing. These spaces are also helping to prepare those who need the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). They provide hands on learning, help with critical thinking skills and even boost self-confidence.
I look forward to working with you all this year. Parents are an integral part of student success. We need you to continue to be involved in the Whitman Community by supporting your students and being an active participant at our school activities. If you are interested in participating on our School Engagement Council, please let me know.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me either by email, email@example.com or phone, 414-604-7705 with any comments or concerns that you have. Please allow me 24 hours to get back to you.
