Principal's Message

February 1, 2017

Dear Roy &Dora Whitman Academy,


Greetings!  Thank you for your patience and feedback as we “trouble shot” our emergency message system.  We went through and corrected the sms phone numbers, so we hope that we got everyone in the system.  I am going to start posting on the front page of the website when we have snow days or late starts as a double back up for information.


This has been quite an eventful week. Thanks for the wonderful sendoff you gave to Dick and Robin Hart. It’s hard to believe that they are actually out of the Whitman community; they have been the cement and foundation of the school for the last 20 years. We pray that God will grant them good health and joy in their new lives of retirement in the US.


I was so pleased to see the students’ work at the science fair.  As each student or student group explained their project, I heard them use scientific vocabulary and saw evidence of clear scientific method. What impressed me the most was when students explained that, “in the research I learned…”, or “I had to go back and look up…”- plenty of evidence of a lot of solid, independent learning. 



Have a wonderful week!
