Principal’s Message

Welcome to the Whipple Heights Elementary!

I am so honored to be the principal of Whipple Heights Elementary School.  As we enter our fourth year together, I find myself filled with excitement knowing that I am continuing my work with such a tremendous staff, an amazing group of students and all of the dedicated families that make up our Whipple community!

So what can you expect this year?  Well, in this new era of rigorous standards and growing technology, it is my belief that our students will continue to excel beyond our greatest expectations.  By facilitating a learning environment that is engaging, nurturing, and focused on inquiry I believe we are instilling in our students a true love of learning.  At the same time, I believe we can continue to help our students grow socially (through our work with expectations and manners) as we guide them toward developing good character and a sense of pride within themselves, their families, their school and the community!

Such work can only happen through a strong partnership with you!  Your continued participation within the school is key to our success.  Regular communication with your child’s teacher, active participation in PTO and school sponsored events, and engaging with your child around what they are learning will help make this the best year ever!

Yours in Education,
Joe Hug
