• We are very excited to have your child in first grade this year at Whitt! Our goal is to create an engaging and exciting year of learning for your child whether they are learning at school or remotely from home. We believe that by providing a structured, supportive, and student-centered learning environment, your child will succeed and become independent thinkers and problem solvers. Parents are the most important influence in the education of our students. Together, we can ensure your child is successful and ready for second grade and beyond.

    *Identify, compare, and describe characters in a story
