Whitman Curriculum Night
Parents & Guardians are invited to the Whitman Curriculum Night on Wednesday, September 24.   The evening events start at 6:30pm with a meet & greet coffee social and a chance to visit the book fair in the Library.  At 7pm there will be a general PTSA meeting in the Library.  At 7:20pm parents/guardians will be dismissed to follow their student's schedule for the rest of the evening. 
You will have a chance to visit each class your child attends.  This is designed to give you general information about the classroom and teacher including the syllabus, classroom expectations, etc.  This is not the time to bring up questions about your individual child.  You should contact the teacher at a later date via email or phoning to set an appointment to discuss your individual child.
Your student will bring home a detailed schedule of events for this evening on Tuesday, 9/23.  Please bring that schedule with you on Wednesday, September 24!
This is a well attended event that is for parents/guardians only.  There is no childcare provided so please make alternate child care arrangements for your student and any siblings.
