Whitehall News – April 2017

  • From the Principal                                            

Dear Whitehall Family,  

Spring is here!  We are excited about the warmer weather and the fact that the children can go outdoors at recess to get fresh air and play.  Remember to keep an eye on the weather so that the children are dressed for the daily outdoor forecast.  Spring recess is around the corner, April 15th through April 17th.    PARCC testing is getting closer as we sharpen our pencils and minds.
