Whittier Elementary PTO

Our Mission

The purpose of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to support the education of our students at Whittier Elementary by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers. If you are a parent or caregiver of a child at Whittier Elementary School, congratulations! You are already a member of the PTO. We hope to see you at a meeting, event, or volunteering in the classroom, on a committee or fundraiser, at a field trip, or in your home. Your involvement is invaluable — it shows the children how much you value their education and that you support our school and its staff in providing it!!

Summer Learning Loss

Summer learning loss is a phenomenon in which students lose academic skills and knowledge over the course of summer vacation. This loss can be particularly pronounced for elementary students, who may not have access to the same level of academic support during the summer months.
