School Leader Welcome

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Whidby Elementary School for Leadership in Health Sciences. We are delighted that you chose us to be a part of your child’s academic and social development.
 
This school year promises to be a great one with new programs and improvements of current programs. Our new programs include Dual Language (DL) for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students and Academic Parent Teacher Teams (APTT) for grades 3-5.
 
We have also revised our schedules and instruction to incorporate improvements with our reading programs. Along with the district, we are implementing the Literacy by Three Plan, which allows extended reading time, district-wide continuity, laser-like differentiation, an abundance of reading materials and resources and ongoing support for students and staff.
 
We will also continue with our signature campus events which include our 5th grade White Coat Ceremony, our Breast Cancer Awareness Event and our Dr. Seuss’ Literacy Event just to name a few.
 
As a valued stakeholder we welcome you to partner with us as we work diligently to increase student achievement. Student achievement is supported when students attend school every day and remain at school the entire day; parents maintain ongoing communication with their child’s teacher; regular study times are available for all students and all stakeholders promote a positive school image at all times.
 
Lastly, please review our website often for pertinent school information and upcoming district and school events.
 
Regards.
Roshanda S. Griffin
