Welcome to Whittier Middle School, home of the Warriors! I am thrilled to get the 2018-19 school year started and meet each of you in person over the next few weeks. At Whittier, we believe all students can experience success in school and in life with the right opportunities, consistent motivation, and support system to guide them along the way. After spending my first year at WMS last year, I can confidently say that the staff continually dedicate themselves towards achieving this goal.
On behalf of the staff at WMS, I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to attend Whittier Middle School’s fall open house on Monday, August 13th, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity to meet the faculty and see what makes WMS the best school in Oklahoma! If your student picked up a schedule at enrollment, please bring it to open house so that you know whom to meet specifically. Maps will also be available upon request.
This open house will provide you a time to visit our school and become more acquainted with the teachers and the various programs offered for both students and parents throughout the year. In order to communicate with you on a more consistent basis, a weekly e-mail “Messenger” or WE-BLAST will be sent using our Infinite Campus system to inform you of upcoming events, student successes, parent resources, and other valuable information happening at Whittier. To receive this weekly communication, you must have a Parent Portal account. When looking over your enrollment verification info, please double-check your e-mail address to ensure you get this information. In addition, our school calendar and other newsworthy items are always available on our school website at: www.normanpublicschools.org/whittier
We are excited to start another successful school year and to partner with you in your children’s success. Warriors ROCK…..and so do you!
Kendall Still, Proud Principal of Whittier Middle School
