Whitin Weekly October 20th

Dear Whitin Families, 

The following is the update for the week of October 20, 2019.

We hosted our first dance of the year this past Friday.  We had over 300 students in attendance between the 4th & 5th grade social and 6th & 7th grade dance later in the evening.  The kids had a blast dancing and eating lots of candy.

Thank you to the Student Council members and Student Council advisor Ms. Marshall for all their hard work in putting on such a great event for the Whitin students.  We also appreciate the work of the Whitin PTO for helping with concessions.
