Welcome to Whiteman Elementary School!


Hi Whiteman Families!  

There are lots of great happenings going on at Whiteman Elementary.

The PTO Book Fair starts next Monday and runs through Friday, September 30. We need parent volunteers anytime on Monday between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Please contact PTO Officer Jennifer Smith at craftykatsmith@yahoo.com if you can help.

PTO is also hosting our Family Game Night next Thursday, September 29 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. here at school. Each grade level will sponsor a game that families can play. So, come on out and enjoy the fun.

Next Thursday, September 29 is Picture Day. Parents can order pictures online or through the paper order form that was sent home recently. All the students that wear a bow tie or a bow in their hair or on their outfits get to take a special picture with Dr. Wilhoit.

I’d like to invite all interested students, staff and parents to our Student Council Kickoff Meeting this Friday from 3:30-4:00 p.m. here at school. STUCO will help support school spirit days, PTO and family involvement activities over the course of the year. This Friday, we will discuss how STUCO works and look at a list of possible activities for the year.

Lastly, we’ve switched our weekly black and orange Spirit Day from Wednesdays to Fridays for the remainder of the year so that we can be in sync with the rest of the district.

Please check out the important upcoming building and PTO dates below. As always, keep smiling and keep in touch with your questions and concerns.

Best, Principal Mike Wilhoit, Ed.D. 660-563-3028
