Summer School Information

Summer School registration is here! Students who are reading below level have been identified and letters for summer school have been sent home. I will continue to send home applications for the below level reading students until the spots are filled. Please return these as soon as possible if you are interested as I will ask more people and your spot may be taken. If you received one and are interested in classes but are worried about the $10, return it with a note that you would like to apply for a PTA scholarship. Scholarships will be considered on a needs basis and are only given for the morning portion.

Open enrollment to summer school for all students began Monday, April 20th. A lottery system will be used to fill these spots. All applications need to have the $10 registration fee to be considered in the lottery and must be returned by May 1st to the office or after school office. After May 1st, students will be contacted if they have been selected. Fees will be refunded to those families who have not been chosen. A wait list will be created from those not chosen based on date of return on the original application. If there are additional spots open in the enrichment/discovery afternoon only class, those on the wait list will be contacted to see if they are interested in participation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Erin Anderson.

Fun Family Activity!

Hi.  I’m Sophie Hildebrandt, a fourth grade student and I’m doing a “Making a Difference” research project in the library. Did you know kids score higher in school if they interact with their family more? I’m doing a contest to encourage Whittier families to eat dinner together more often; this is only one way you can help your family be closer to each other. During the contest, parents will sign a record sheet telling me how many days the family ate dinner together. This contest will start May first and end May 15. On May first please ask your child to show you the record sheet.

There will be two winners for each grad, making a total of 14 students. The winners will get a kids book of questions for discussing at the dinner table and free coupons! These coupons include free meals at Applebee’s so your family can go eat a FREE dinner together, free bowling at Fat Cats, and other meal coupons. Please support me in my project!

Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten Readiness Programs

SLCSD has two phenomenal Early Childhood programs that are designed for children who are four and five years old: Pre-Kindergarten and Summer-Kindergarten Readiness. Registration begins on April 23 at the Early Childhood Office on 1388 South Navajo Street. District research supports the effectiveness of this high-quality Pre-Kindergarten program, and shows that early intervention pays dividends later in school and life.
