A huge thank you to all who attended our Winter Literacy/Art Night on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.  So many of our students and families were able to tour the building to observe the incredible works of art created in Mrs. Mullane’s Art classes as well as engage in fun crafts based off of these works of art.  Each of our family nights has a special theme and this time it was Island Luau.  We had a special reader who read the story There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell by Lucille Colandro.  The evening capped off with a basket raffle where 5 of our students took home some exciting literacy/art baskets. Once again, another family fun night at Whipple.  As always, thank you for your continued support.
