Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Whitaker Elementary School. As you learn more about Whitaker, I hope you will discover what we believe makes Whitaker such a special place to be a student. Since opening up in 1954, Whitaker has been committed to creating a tradition of excellence with students, staff, parents and community members working cooperatively and successfully, together as a team. Our students work hard to meet the challenges placed before them. We strive daily to be a school with high expectations, coupled with never-ending gifts of care, concern and patience.
Coming to Whitaker Elementary is an exceptional opportunity. I am honored to be a member of the Whitaker family and lead this dedicated school community. Education and effort determine the trajectory of our lives. I am proud to be an educator, among the noblest of professions. Quoting Carol Dweck of Stanford University, "Effort is one of the things that gives meaning to life. Effort means you care about something, that something is important to you and you are willing to work for it." I am confident that we will combine our efforts to provide our children with foundations that will serve them lifelong. I hope that you will think of Whitaker as “our school” and want the best for all the children, just as I do.
Thank you in advance for your support and dedication to Whitaker. Here's to a fantastic school year!.
