Dear Whitman Families,

This week, most students completed the new Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) testing requirement called the Virginia Growth Assessment (VGA) in reading and mathematics.  We will be using the results to help tailor our instruction for our students.  They will be tested again before Winter Break in the same subjects.

With the beautiful weather, our students were able to participate in outdoor recess most days this week.  Students are playing football, soccer, kickball, and frisbee.  It really has been a nice way to get students outside into the sunshine and fresh air.  With Winter ahead of us, we will have to have more indoor recess but are ready to provide decks of cards, games, and puzzles.  If you would like to contribute to our recess equipment and games, feel free to drop things by the main office or make a donation online at https://whitmanms.fcps.edu/announcements/donate-whitman-ms.

This Monday, September 26 is a student holiday.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

 

Dr. Craig Herring, Principal

Dear Whitman Community,

 

All parents/ guardians are invited to attend our annual Back to School Night on Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.  Parents will walk through their student’s schedule and meet their teachers.  Please ask your child for a copy of his/her schedule or you can access class schedules through ParentVue.  You may also take a picture of your child’s paper copy on your phone.  If you do not have a copy of your student’s schedule, counselors will be available to provide them.  All parents should be in the Advisory (1st period class) by 6:00 PM.  The evening should conclude around 8:00 PM.  I’ve provided some important information below about some Early Bird Sessions starting at 5:00 PM if you have the time and interest.  Our entire staff is looking forward to seeing you!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly at [email protected] or 703-660-2400. 

 

Sincerely,

Dear Whitman Community,

I couldn’t be happier with the start of the school year!  Our Whitman Wildcats have started the year with enthusiasm and excitement, ready to learn!  They are being kind, helpful, and extremely positive!

To start off this year, the Whitman Faculty and Staff revisited our core beliefs, mission, and vision.  I invite you all to review them at this website:  https://whitmanms.fcps.edu/about.  These tenets of Whitman Middle School were created collaboratively by the entire staff and reaffirmed just recently during a day of professional learning.  One of the main core beliefs is that we have collective responsibility for all students!  This means our entire Whitman Community, including you!   You can start to get involved by joining the Whitman PTSA (https://wwmsptsa.digitalpto.com/). 

My hope is that the entire Whitman Community will continue to collaborate with us to create a positive, respectful culture that sets high expectations, achievable goals, and a pathway to success for all students.

Sincerely,

Dr. Craig Herring, Principal

Dear Whitman Community,

It is hard to believe but we are about to begin the 2022-23 school year!  Our faculty and staff are excited to have the students back in the building and are planning for engaging and exciting instruction!  We are holding an Open House on Thursday, August 18 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM for all families to explore the building, pick up class schedules, and have any questions answered.  It will be a fun, festive atmosphere with food, music, and other surprises.  We hope our families can stop by for the event.  Be sure to stop by the PTSA booth and join our family!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at school and in the community this year!

Sincerely,

Dr. Craig Herring, Principal
