Join us at PTSA Meetings
Please join us for 7 PTSA meetings during the year at 7:00 PM in the Media Center. The first PTSA meeting of the year, Tuesday, September 25, 2018, starts at 7:30. Clubs Night for the students is also this night. Parents will have the opportunity to check out Clubs Night which starts at 7:00., and then come to the PTSA meeting. Look for other meetings Oct. 16, 2018, Jan 15, Feb 19, Mar 19, Apr 23 and May 21, 2019. We will host a general meeting typically followed by a speaker.
Whether you are available on a regular basis or once a year, there is a volunteer opportunity for you. Look for more volunteer opportunities posted on Whitnet throughout the school year or contact one of the PTSA VP’s for Volunteers, Joday Aucamp (firstname.lastname@example.org)or Stephanie Deutchman (email@example.com). Descriptions of the many programs the PTSA runs are listed on the Website under “PTSA Quick Links,” PTSA Committee and Activity Descriptions.
We can’t stress enough the importance of staying up-to-date with what’s happening at Whitman. Downloading the Whitman App and signing up for Whitnet are critical ways for you and your family to remain informed. For more suggestions on staying up-to-date, and instructions on how to join Whitnet, please see the attached handout – “6 Ways to Stay Up-to-Date at Whitman.”
Use the Directory
The Whitman Directory is a great way to keep in touch with staff and other Whitman families. Directory sales support the senior class. When you join the Whitman PTSA your parent membership includes one Whitman Directory. Non-members cannot purchase directories until December.
Refer to the School Calendar
In the “Calendar of Events” on the Whitman website, you’ll find important dates for the entire school year. For your convenience, attached is a Whitman Highlights Calendar for a guide to events by month. Times are subject to change, so please refer to the website to confirm dates and times.
