Welcome to John B. Whitsitt Elementary School

Hello Whitsitt Family,

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful summer break.  Remind your child to read, write, and use their thinking skills during this time. I wanted to let you know that I will not be returning to Whitsitt School in August.  It has been my pleasure working with the students, teachers, and parents of Whitsitt School over the last five years.  I will miss each one of you. I know that you will have a successful 2014-15 school year under the leadership of your new principal, Mr. Uppinghouse.  

Hola Whitsitt familia,

Espero que todo el mundo está pasando unas vacaciones maravillosas. Recuérdele a su hijo a leer, escribir y utilizar sus habilidades de pensamiento durante este tiempo. Quería hacerle saber que no volveré a la escuela Whitsitt en agosto. Ha sido un placer trabajar con los estudiantes, maestros y padres de la escuela Whitsitt en los últimos cinco años. Voy a extrañar a cada uno de ustedes. Sé que va a tener un año escolar exitoso bajo el liderazgo de su nuevo director, el Sr. Uppinghouse.
