Whitman Elementary School kicked off its 50th anniversary celebration on Thursday morning, September 3, 2015 at 8:45 a.m. with a ribbon cutting and celebratory presentation. All members of the Whitman faculty and staff wore their 50th anniversary t-shirts to commemorate the occasion. 4th grade teacher, Kimberly Haines, cut the ribbon to begin our year of celebratory activities as planned by our Anniversary Committee with the support of our Whitman Home and School Council. Ms. Haines was a student at Whitman Elementary in 1965 when the school opened and continues her dedication to the school by enriching our students here as a teacher.
Upcoming events to commemorate the celebration will be publicized as they are planned.
