Dear Kindergarten Parents,                   school bus   
                                                                                                           
Welcome to our exciting Kindergarten world at Whitlow Elementary. For those of you experiencing a child in kindergarten for the first time, get ready! You will be amazed at the amount of learning that takes place. For other more school-experienced parents, you will be pleased with our curriculum which includes Harcourt Trophies language arts and reading programs, Dr. Cupp, and Math Expressions.

We are excited about our strong WES kindergarten team. We have a great combination of talented teachers with qualities that complement and bring out the best in each other. We have new and nearly new teachers with that fresh enthusiasm and excitement that give us all a big boost. We have teachers who have been led to Whitlow from other schools or counties, bringing their talents, experience, and new ideas with them. We will all experience the exciting changes in our school and community together for the first time. We all look forward to working together!

As a team and as individuals, our first priority is your child’s education and well-being. We will work diligently to see that each child receives the greatest benefits of our educational program. We know from experience that parent involvement is essential to maximize the benefits the child gets from his/her school experience. Regardless of the experience and expertise of the teacher, research shows that the biggest and most important factor in a student"s school success is the involvement of the PARENT in daily school experiences. We urge you to become involved by helping your child with homework and projects, joining PTA, attending school meetings and conferences, volunteering in the classroom, talking with your child about his/her school experiences, and participating in our home/school reading incentive program.

We are looking forward to working with your child and you!
