    We are Cubs of Character!!!

    March is trustworthiness month at Whitehouse School.  We are focusing on how to build trust.  Our favorite affirmation this month is: We say what we mean, and we mean what we say!  We are helping the children to understand that when we set goals or make promises, we have to be trusted to follow-through.  Please continue to discuss acts of good character with your child as he/she earns your permission to shade in pieces from his/her bucket filler puzzle. Your child has already received a copy, but you can click here to download another copy of the Trustworthiness bucket.

    CALLING ALL MAKERS!

    Dear Families, 

    We are excited for our upcoming Makers Day on Thursday, March 14th.  Our thematic unit this year is based on the book, Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers.  In the movie version of the book, a character named Bert is a One-Man-Band.   Students will be challenged with the task of creating their own musical instrument out of recyclable materials.  Please help your child brainstorm a musical instrument they would like to create on this day.  Students will be provided with basic materials, but they are welcome to bring in their own recyclable materials.

     Ideas for the body of the instrument:

    • Tissue box
    • Cereal box
    • Toilet paper rolls
    • Cups
    • Paper plates
    • Popsicle sticks

     Ideas for the sound part of the instrument:

    • Rubber bands
    • Beans
    • Rice 
    • Buttons
    • Plastic spoons

    Please bring in supplies by March 14th.  Students will have one hour to design and create their musical instrument in school.  Then they will all play their instruments together as a class.  We are encouraging creativity!  It will be magical like Mary Poppins!
    Warmly,

    Dr. DeRosa and Mrs. Martinez

    WHS Grade Level Drills Conducted Today

    Dear WHS Parents/Guardians:

    Schools in New Jersey are required to conduct security drills once a month during the school year.  A new law, P.L. 2021, c.365, has gone into effect that requires school districts to notify students, staff, and parents when a school security drill is conducted during the school day.  Additionally, students and staff are notified at the conclusion of the drill that it was just a drill and that no danger exists.

    This email is to notify you that Whitehouse School held a security drill at approximately 9:30 today.  The routine security drill went smoothly.
