Whitin Weekly May 12th

Dear Whitin Families,

The following is the update for the week of May 12, 2019.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our Whitin mothers.  

MCAS Science testing for 5th grade only

Tuesday and Wednesday, May 14 & 15th

Please ensure that your children get a good night sleep, have a health breakfast and are on time for school during testing days.

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.
