Family and Teachers of Whitman (PTA)

  • Hello families and friends,

    As we approach the end of the school year we are faced with finding new leadership for our group. The secretary and I will not be running for reelection with our son leaving Whitman at the end of this school year. We are both sad to leave this incredible community, but trust that new families will step up to support our students and school.
    We need your help! We are looking for volunteers for our Nominating Committee to identify individuals who would like to have an impact. Our PTA is ready to be shaped by new ideas and members. Over the last four years we've collaborated closely with Whitman staff to improve our school. If this is something you'd like to learn more about, please reach out to me at and you can join us at our next General Meeting on May 18th. 
    I'm excited to report that we finalized our contribution to Impact NW, providing $2700 to families in our community that have greatly suffered over the last year. While we haven't been able to be together, we can at least support each other.
    Finally, we are planning to host another treat bag event on Friday, April 30th after each hybrid class session. Please stop by Flavel park at 10:15 or 2:30 or encourage your child to stop by after class to claim a bag of sweets.
    Key events:
    General Meeting May 18th at 6:30 PM - Elections for President, Vice President and Secretary.
    All our best,
    Erik Benton
