Welcome to the website of Whitman Elementary!
A MESSAGE FROM DR. POWELL:
Hope all is well. I miss you guys so much. On Wednesday, April 1, 2020 from 11am - 12:30pm Oakland County Sheriff along with Variety Food for Kids will be providing food bags to our Whitman Families. Also, there will be 3rd - 5th grade reading and math packets for students. Please continue to stay safe and follow the CENTER DISEASE CONTROL CDC GUIDELINES. TAKE CARE!
Whitman Elementary is a wonderfully unique public school. We offer a rigorous academic program to include all subject areas. Common Core State Standards guide our curriculum and student learning is challenged on Bloom’s Levels of Cognitive Awareness. Our students are regularly and consistently provided the opportunity to apply real-world applications.
Comprehensive learning is provided through homework/practice, instructional resources, projects, and technology. In addition, Project Excel and Kirk in the Hills offer after school tutoring to assist Whitman students who need added academic support. As a part of the district wide intercessions, students are provided three weeks of extended learning opportunities which focus on reading and math interventions. During this time students are also involved in hands-on science activities and extracurricular activities, such as computers and physical education.
In cooperation with DHS/Pathways, Whitman is committed to involving parents in student learning. DHS/Pathways hold monthly parent meetings that inform and support parents with strategies to help students at home.
We are academically based with “high expectations” for every Whitman student.
