Second Discussion on Race and Equity in the Whitman Cluster - Tuesday, March 28th
Please join us in the media center on Tuesday March 28 at 7:00 PM for the second in a series of discussions about race and equity in the Whitman cluster. Mr. Charles Alexander from the MCPS Equity Team will again join us to work through a discussion of what our vision and goals should be as a community, with regard to race and equity. Then we’ll spend the rest of the time talking through scenarios to help us parents figure out how to talk with our children about issues of race. We’ll arrange to have Bar-T childcare for elementary-aged kids. Contact Jeff Leitner or Kim Bishop with questions. If you plan to attend please email Jeff Leitner to RSVP; let us know how many adults will attend and also how many (if any) kids will be there with Bar-T.
Celebrate our school’s richness and cultural diversity.

Incoming Kindergarten Families
Information will be sent home next week requesting information on prospective students and providing the opportunity to register for one of our two Kindergarten Coffees, scheduled for February 23rd and March 9th both at 9:15 AM. These informational coffees are designed to give parents some insight into a day in the life of a kindergarten student, and the chance to have questions answered. Please share this information with your neighbors who have a child that will be 5 years of age by Sept. 1st. Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled for April 27 and 28. At orientation you will bring your paperwork to register your child and bring your child so that the teaching staff can meet them and work with them for short time. Please call the WAES front office to register or with any questions.
