Latest News for Whipple Elementary
In celebration of Earth Day, the 1st graders were asked to create their own “recycled craft” using materials that they may be getting rid of or throwing away. All of their projects were amazing! Stones were used to create a picture frame. An old tee-shirt was trimmed and sewn for an awesome shoulder bag. Games were concocted from used yogurt bottles and plastic eggs. The students were ingenious!
On Earth Day, the classes had lessons on saving Mother Earth. Did you know a plastic bottle takes 450 years to biodegrade? Recycling is very critical to the Earth’s survival. Click here to view a slideshow of this exciting day!

Great things continue to happen at Whipple Heights Elementary School. The most recent being the posting of Mr. Hug’s 6th Round Principal Showcase. The Principal Showcase is a bulletin board (located in the main hallway across from the office) where every four to five weeks teachers submit student work for recognition and display. Each time the board is changed we recognize these students on our website/social media. Additionally, when it’s time to change the board students receive a small token from Mr. Hug to reinforce his pride and excitement in their display of hard work.
