Arbor Day

Think Spring.

Coaches cheer Girls on the Run as they jog up the hill.  Mr. Alex and the biking crew pedal along under flowering trees.  Curious kindergarteners chase a butterfly.  It is a season of wonder, and believe it or not, it is right around the corner!

Our new brochure is the key that opens the door to Art Buddies, Rock Climbing at Vertical Endeavors, Yoga, Chess, Taekwondo and more.  If you haven’t participated, or have a taken a hiatus, spring is a wonderful time to join us in After School!

Spring classes will start up on March 9th.  Priority registration deadline is March 3.

Reminder: Many of our classes are year-round classes!  For these, you don't need to sign up again for the spring session:

  • Book Club with Mr. Belsito
  • Bike Write Ski
  • Chess
  • Dream Reader
  • Future Problem Solvers
  • Park Pathways
  • Target Mentors
  • Whittier Student News

We had a very successful Arbor Day Celebration on May 11.  Check out the news coverage on Channel 5!  

Track our new trees, using our Arbor Day Tree Map.  So far all but two of the 29 trees made it through the summer and are looking healthy and lush.  

This is Whittier After School!

Check out all of the things we are doing in After School!!!  Whittier students are enthusiastic risk takers!  Here are some scenes from our Fall 2019 session.

Arbor Day Tree Planting

On May 11, 2019, the Whittier community came together to plant 29 new trees.  Now, we will work to make sure that these trees survive and thrive!  Our goal is to have a ceremony on May 11, 2022 celebration 100% survival!!
