Week of April 28

Dear Whitin Families,

The following is the update for the week of April 28, 2019.

We are in the final stretch of the school year.  While there are only seven weeks of school left there is plenty of work still to be done as well as many events coming up.  Please be sure to stay up to date with us to ensure you are aware of all that is happening at Whitin over the next month and a half.  Be sure to follow us on Twitter along with visiting our new website at www.uxbridgeschools.com

A reminder that Friday, May 3 is a half day of school for students.

I ask for your help in reminding your children to be respectful of the school grounds as well as the neighbors’ yards.  There are many students who are walking on the neighbor’s lawns and not respecting their property. Students who are picked up from school should be reminded to stay on the sidewalk even as they pass the school grounds.  I thank you for your help in this matter.

After School Math Program

A reminder to those students participating in the math after school program, the last session will be held tomorrow (Monday, April 29th) after school from 2:05-3:15.

Whitin PTO

The Whitin PTO is looking for new members to join the board.  There are several positions available. We need your help in filling these positions.  The PTO sponsors many events throughout the year which benefit all the students. Without the help of volunteers these events are not possible.  Being a part of the board requires one meeting per month and any help you can provided in planning, organizing and attending events throughout the year.  Email Bethann Lafontaine if you are interested in joining the board next year. blafontaine24@icloud.com
