White City Elementary School, in partnership with parents and community members, will become a premier center of knowledge that is organized around students and the work provided to them.
White City Elementary School’s name is synonymous with continuously improving student achievement and the success of each individual.
Our promise is to focus on our core business, the creation of challenging, engaging, and satisfying work for every student, every day.
This is the Wildcat way!
Our mission at White City Elementary School is to collaborate as a learning organization while engaging the minds of our students every day through quality work.
All students will develop to their fullest potential, respect themselves and others, and acquire a love of learning.
At White City Elementary, we are the Roaring Wildcats!
“If a child doesn’t know how to read, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to swim, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to multiply, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to drive, we teach. If a child doesn’t know how to behave, we….teach?…punish?” Why can’t we finish the last sentence as automatically as we do the others? -Herner, 1998
Parent Teacher Organization (P.T.O)
P.T.O. is a voluntary organization bringing together parents and teachers for fundraising, building parent involvement and community at school and other activities relating to the welfare of the school. Even if you are unable to attend meetings, your help is appreciated. Please contact the school for more information.
We encourage you to consider volunteering at our school. There are many ways to help! Please contact the school for more information. Your time will benefit our students. School policy discourages volunteers from working in their child’s classroom or at the same grade level. Younger siblings may not be brought on campus while volunteering.
The guidance counselor serves our students by working with parents, teachers, and administrators to assist with their academic, social, and emotional concerns. The guidance counselor is also available to provide you with information about resources to support you and your child. The guidance counselor also serves as the school testing coordinator, ESOL coordinator, and the Multi-Tier System of Supports coordinator.
Responsible fifth grade students are selected as Safety Patrol members to monitor students as they enter and leave their classrooms. A small number of fourth grade students are included to provide training for the following year. Patrols help by reminding fellow students about PBS school wide expectations and safety procedures. If a student does not obey the rules after being reminded by a patrol, the patrol reports the incident to an adult for disciplinary action.
Each grade level participates in field day activities at the end of the school year. The students participate in relay races, obstacle courses, and other various physical activity events. Classes at each grade level group compete with one another and sportsmanlike conduct is taught and encouraged.
Progress Reports are issued each month. Students are expected to take them home so that families may be informed of their progress. Progress Reports are to be signed by the student’s parent/guardian and returned to the classroom teacher. Space is provided on the progress report for parent comments and for the request of a conference. We encourage you to request a conference if you have questions or concerns about your child’s progress.
