Message from the Head of School

April 12, 2017

Dear Roy & Dora Whitman Academy Community,


Blessings to you on this high holy week of Easter. This is the most important of the Christian celebrations. All of our troubles and concerns melt away in the light of the powerful sacrifice of love and the power that Jesus displayed in His resurrection.  I wish you all a very happy and reverent Easter holiday.


On a more mundane note, the board will be announcing its decision on the weekend issue and we will be publishing our calendar for the 2017 school year as soon as is physically possible.  Thank you for your patience.


We are still in need of a 2nd grade, 3rd grade and elementary ELL teacher and academic guidance counselor for next year. Please keep these in prayer and in conversation. We do provide a tuition benefit for those who recruit teachers.



Julia J. Nuqul, M. Ed., Ed. D.

P.S. Miss Muna, Mr. Nuqul and I will be out of office for the next three days as we attend to the condolence reception for Muna’s mother, who is my mother-in-law and Mr. Nuqul’s grandmother.
