Warrior Run/Carnival

It’s coming! Join us April 23rd for our annual fun run and carnival. If you have not received a registration form or have any questions, please contact us at

There will be more bounce houses this year!!! Karaoke will return (remember Mrs Foster and Ms Jacobs’ epic duo?), as well as cake walk and silent auction. If you or your business would like to donate any items to be auctioned, please email us or send them to school with your child with a note saying what it is for. Silent Auction proceeds will be allocated towards teacher items over the coming year. In the past those items have included books, pe equipment, rugs and other items teachers have requested that enhance the classroom.

There will be two registrations given away for free at Family Engagement Night on the 6th so come out for that as well! We look forward to seeing you then!

Art fundraiser!



Parents! Look for these forms to come home in your child’s backpack today or Monday. Each form has your own child’s artwork on it that they did in class earlier this month. They are really excited to share this with you! All orders are done online and a portion of the sales will come back to PTO to help fund activities for all classrooms. Order deadline, which is not listed on the flyer, is October 2nd. These will make fantastic presents for friends and family! We hope you enjoy this fundraising option and help us support OUR school!

PTO has some big plans this year! We would like to get started on this Learning Garden soon, but we need your help. Please come to our next PTO meeting this Monday, Sept. 21st at 6:30pm in the library. We will be talking work dates, costs, supplies needed and answering questions.

See you then!


A word about PTO Fundraising Nights

As you have undoubtedly seen, the calendar this year is sprinkled with several “PTO” nights at various locations. The first of these is this Friday, August 28th at Dairy Queen. These nights are a way for PTO to bring in a little money throughout the year to help fund the various projects we have going on. Do not feel pressured to attend all of these! It is not our intent to make you feel as though you need to go to, or support, each one. We simply wanted to provide several opportunities so that you are able to do it when it works best for you.

That being said, Dairy Queen will be from 6-8pm this Friday. We will be sending home a flyer that you will need to bring with you so that they know your order supports Whitson. This will only be good at the 17th street location.

Thank you for all your support!

For all the new parents…
