Jog-a-thon Update: Pie Assembly and Tablet Winner
Friday afternoon was a fun time for those who earned their entry to the Pie Assembly by doing so well with our Jog-a-thon!
Mr. Topete got pie in his face!
And congratulations to Oscar for winning a new tablet!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org (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!
