Whitman Elementary is a recipient of the 21st Century After School Grant, which gives our school the opportunity to offer a wide array of extracurricular enrichments during non-school hours. We provide dinner for participating students and then host numerous clubs such as Cooking Club, Sports Club, Debate Club, and Pom. In addition, the program helps our students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math, through creative approaches to learning. We also offer literacy training to the families of our students.
