2nd Annual Whipple Heights PTO Charity Week: November 14-18

At Whipple Heights, we believe in teaching our young learners the importance of being charitable. The week of November 16-20 will be devoted to focusing on helping those less fortunate.  Last year we collected $1,650 plus boxes and boxes of donated items.  This year, we hope to be able to do the very same if not more.  Please take a few minutes to read the file linked here. A copy of this came home this week as well.  We ask that you take a few minutes to talk with your child(ren) about what it means to be charitable and do as much as you can to support each day of this all-important week.  All donations and money raised will go to Perry Helping Perry.

Grandparents Day Information

Image result for grandparents dayRecently you received information, in Whipple’s November Newsletter,  for our Upcoming Grandparents Day!  To pull this event off we need your HELP!  Please see the attached flyer which should come home with your student today.  We are especially in need of LOTS of cookies for this day.  Also, because of the volume of people we host on this day, please know we will be unable to have grandparents stay for lunch.  They are certainly welcome another day but with so much going on we would prefer they come only during their scheduled time.

4th Annual Whipple Walk-A-Thon

img_3451Whipple Heights held its 4th annual Whipple Walk-A-Thon on Thursday, October 6th.  It was by far our biggest walk-a-thon to date, raising just shy of $21,000.00.  A HUGE Thank You to our Whipple Heights Community for their support!  The top prize for students was a ride in a limo bus to CiCi’s Pizza for lunch with the Mr. Hug on Wednesday, October, 26th!  We had 146 students qualify for this prize level which meant they each raised $100.00 or more towards our total.  Thanks to the Whipple Heights PTO for putting on another great fundraising experience for our students and school!

Honoring Superstar Effort!

principal-showcase-2Great things happen at Whipple Heights Elementary School.  The most recent being the posting of Mr. Hug’s 2nd 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.  (more…)

Congratulations & Thank You!
