What's New At Whitson? 
In addition to the beautiful NEW windows we received over the summer, we will also be getting NEW upgraded exterior doors! Next to the exterior doors (if needed) glass paneling will be replaced to provide a safer exterior. The north end of the building windows that are currently silver will be painted to match the new windows and doors! Be looking for a great new school come fall! How exciting!

We have created a Go Fund Me page to help in our fundraising efforts for new playground equipment.  The link is below.

Please consider sharing this with family, friends, Whitson Alumni and anyone else you think would be willing to donate to our efforts.  We have a great start with the flower bulbs but it is going to take a lot of effort to help us meet our goal.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let us know.  Thank you for your support of Whitson PTO!
