Child working on gummy worm project 3rd-Graders Work to Save Gummy Worm "Fred"
Students in Mrs. Abrahamson's and Miss Blazavich's third-grade classes worked together to save "Fred."  Their goal was to get Fred (a gummy worm) into his life jacket (a round gummy) and into his boat (a paper cup) using just a paper clip!  It was a great lesson in problem-solving, planning and teamwork.

Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:
The question of the day is,"Will the High School and CEA be ready to open by the time school starts?"  The answer is "YES, we will be ready to open schoool, but the project will continue throughout the year."  Sidewalks and canopies will be finished later in the fall, updates to rooms in the back wing of the High School will start midyear and the two new UPK rooms will be ready in the spring.  The decision to work second shift to finish the project during the school year became part of the plan based on the approval date we received from the State Education Department.  We are very fortunate that the contractors on the project have been working diligently and collaboratively to get us in good shape for the opening of school.  Please take a look at the campus map to note new traffic patterns including designated student drop-off/pick-up loops for both schools.
Times change and we are always looking to improve opportunities for students and keep our network infrastructure up-to-date.  This year we added the following:
  • Pre-K full-day classes for three-year-olds
  • Switching our student management system from PowerSchool to School Tool.  Parents and guardians should have received a letter in the mail asking for any updates.
  • Launching a new program, MLScheduler, an online program for requesting the use of school facilities.  Use this link for instructions on creating an account and helpful videos to assist you in requesting the use of a building or field.  If you need assistance with MLScheduler, please call 692-8245.

As I celebrate the start of my 10th year at Whitney Point CSD and my sixth year as Superintendent, I want to thank the WP Board of Education and the community for your continued support for our schools and programs.

We look forward to welcoming all of our students!
Patricia Follette, Superintendent
