It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The holidays are a wonderful time when many of us recognize our TEACHERS with tokens of appreciation!  Anyone wishing to have a thank you card, gift, or special something delivered to any of the Whitmore Bolles Staff – your friendly PTA  is here to help! 

Please drop off holiday gifts during office hours (8:30-4:00) from 12/9 – 12/15 at the main office door or on 12/15 from 5-6PM in the school parking lot.  All items must be CLEARLY LABELED with the staff member’s name and in a sealed package (ziplock bag preferred).  Items will be stored together until delivery, so we don’t want anything falling out.

Masks must be worn during drop-offs and social distancing protocols will be observed. 

Any questions please email your PTA at WBollesPTA@gmail.com prior to December 15th and PLEASE don’t forget to join the PTA!  https://wbollespta.new.memberhub.store/store

Whitmore-Bolles Family Needs Survey, ongoing

Good Afternoon Families,

There is no deadline for filling out the survey. It will always be available on the blog to use when a need arises.

This survey is for our families at Whitmore-Bolles Elementary who may need extra support.  Please answer the SURVEY, so we are able to assist you.  

For any additional questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Katharine Johnston, School Social Worker, at johnstk@dearbornschools.org.

Stay well,

Ms. Johnston

Are you missing a charger/powercord to something in your home? We might have it (and you might have ours)!

Hello families,

We had two Dell Chromebooks returned with the wrong chargers/powercords. Easy mistake to make during these crazy times with all of the electronics we all use!

Unfortunately, the cords are from our newest Chromebooks and we don’t have extras. So, we aren’t able to distribute the two Chromebooks to families unless we can get the correct chargers returned.

Here are the cords that were turned in:

Ramdom chargers/powercords

Here is what the chargers that belong to the newer Dell Chromebooks look like:

If either of the first two cords look familiar to you, please look around your house for the Dell charger and stop in to the office to make the swap.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
