Help Needed

Are you passionate about your child’s education? We are looking for an ELP Steering Committee chair-elect for the 2018/19 school year. This person would transition to the ELP Steering Committee Chair in 2019/20. We need someone as soon as possible in order to bring them on board with school leadership, district business, and other upcoming events.  For more details about what this entails, please feel free to reach out to Crystal Black (our current chair elect) or to Anne Harges (our current chair).

Next year, our fall fundraiser will be an online donation campaign. All the campaign materials will be designed over the summer and the campaign will begin right when school starts. We need a fundraiser chair (and committee!) to help distribute materials, collect information from teachers, and generally stay on top of tasks. If you can help, please email the ELP Chair.

Without involvement of parents in the ELP Steering Committee, we will be unable to continue representing the needs of ELP Students at Whittier. Please consider ways you can get involved!

Open House Volunteers Needed

The ELP Open House is when families who have been accepted to the ELP program can tour the school to find out what Whittier is all about. This helps families determine which ELP program and school is the right fit.

We need help staffing the ELP Open House from 8:30 to 11:30 AM on March 20, 21, and 22. We also have a makeup day on May 21. Please consider signing up for a time. We use this as an opportunity to highlight all Whittier has to offer.
