After a postponed start due to “Irene”, we have begun Whiting School’s 59th year. Mrs. Denis has informed me that there has been a Denis family member in the building since its opening. Although this is my first year in Whiting, and my first year as a principal, it is my 50th year being part of a school community. I am extremely happy to be a part of the Whiting community.


This week we welcomed two new students and 12 new preschool children. We have also welcomed a new nurse, Daphne LeaHemmer to our staff.

Classes started in on Tuesday and the buzz of happy students could be heard up and down the hallway. It’s been amazing for me to observe our dedicated teachers leading their students in activities that create a smooth and seamless transition from summer to fall.
