Newport Mesa Unified School District Announces Recommendation for Assistant Superintendent of Student Support Services/SELPA
Jog-a-thon - a Huge Success!
Everyone jogged (and ran!) with all their might. It was fun to watch 5th Grade warm-up on the blacktop. Our Whittier dolphin made an appearance, doing jumping jacks and stretching along with 5th Grade. Did Dolphin jog? If anyone has any pictures, of Dolphin, of our students and/or of our wonderful Whittier staff, please send them to email@example.com (please)!
While we wait for all the great photos to flood in, here are a few to show how much Whittier PRIDE and spirit everyone showed! Thank you ALL for making our Jog-a-thon a GREAT success!
