    Please note the following changes to our School Calendar:
    • Friday, January 27th will be a regular school day;
    • The Recognition Assembly will take place on January 27th instead of January 26th;
    • No more late start days for the rest of the school year;
    • Friday, February 3rd is now a Teacher Planning Day; there will be no class on that day.

Message

  • Principal Ruth Tucker

    Dear Families,


    Thank you to all the parents and family members who are driving safely around our school during dismissal and drop-off. You modeling safe and respectful behavior helps us keep our students safe.

    We met with the City of Portland, who came and observed the traffic patterns in our neighborhood around the School and created a plan for potential updates for Flavel St. and 72nd. They will be presenting their proposal at the next Parent Tea on Wednesday, March 1st.

    This week our teachers have been participating in Math Learning Walks, where teams of colleagues watch each other teach and debrief a lesson collaboratively to keep moving our instructional practices forward. We have an outstanding team and I’m very proud of the level of discourse and commitment to professional development that our teachers demonstrate every day.

    Lastly, I wanted to share with you that both the State and District budgets are going to be dramatically reduced for next year. We don’t yet know how this will impact Whitman School, but as always, we remain committed to providing quality education for your children.

    Respectfully,

    RuthTucker
