Family Involvement

West Whittier’s mission is to partner with parents and the community to ensure every student reaches his/her optimum potential. Parental involvement is essential to help our students meet our school’s academic goals and advance our mission of “Every Child Goes To College In The Future.”  Therefore, we are dedicated to partnering with parents and the entire school community to strengthen our educational program. 

West Whittier offers a variety of opportunities for parental involvement. Parents are encouraged to take part in committees such as English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC), Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), Dad’s Club, and School Site Council (SSC). These committees aim to keep parents informed about the school as well as seek parent support and recommendations for enhancing our programs.  West Whittier is also dedicated to supporting parents through education.  Therefore, we provide a variety of learning opportunities for families.  Parent Classes, Common Core Informational Nights, and Math Strategies for Parents Workshops are designed to provide parents with skills and strategies to support their child’s success. Fun family events such as Family Math Night, Movie Nights, Bingo Nights, and Family Dances offer additional opportunities to strengthen relationships between the school and home and build long lasting memories.
