Whitin Weekly May 20th

Dear Whitin Families,

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

Whitin PTO News

We moved the time for the last PTO meeting to 3:30pm on Wednesday, June 12th.

The Whitin PTO is looking for new members to join the board. We need your help in filling the Treasure position.  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

We are looking for a few volunteers to help us out at the 7th Grade Send off Bar-B-Que. If you are interested in signing up sign up here. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B49AEA62BA0FD0-7thgrade

Walkers and Pickups

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.
