A heartfelt thank you to our SODA neighbors!

Our 5th graders and their families were thrilled to see so many neighbors out to cheer for them during their Dream Cruise promotion ceremony today. We were deeply appreciative for the support of our SODA neighbors as we strived to make this day special for our students.

The 5th grade promotion ceremony is a rite of passage that our students look forward to long before they enter 5th grade. In a year where there have been a lot of “new normals” for our students to adjust to, our teachers worked hard to find a way to make this a day to remember for them with the Dream Cruise concept.

Our staff lined the WB parking lot to wish our 5th graders continued success and kick off the Dream Cruise. Cruising the rest of the route without an audience would not have been as nearly as wonderful for our students as today’s experience of seeing neighbors lining the SODA streets to congratulate and encourage them as they move on to middle school.

From our Whitmore-Bolles family to yours, thank you for your support SODA neighbors.

Kristi Waddell, Principal

We are going to miss you all, especially our 5th graders moving on to middle school…

We hope everyone has a safe and healthy summer!

TikTok Tuesday

We wouldn’t have wanted to walk this tightrope over the past few months with anyone else but all of you! Thank you for all of your support and hard work during this unprecedented time…

Please stay tuned for a special TikTok this Thursday to celebrate our soon to be 6th grade students!

Join us on June 11 for the 5th Grade Dream Cruise promotion celebration!

Our 5th grade teachers had to get creative this year to find a way to celebrate the promotion of our 5th graders and they succeeded!

On Thursday, June 11 at 1:00 pm we will hold our first ever Whitmore-Bolles mobile promotion ceremony – the 5th Grade Dream Cruise. Fifth graders and their families will drive the perimeter of our parking lot, stopping at stations where teachers will hand them certificates and other items through the window. Families will the follow a designated route through the neighborhood. (See map below for route)

We’re hoping Whitmore families and neighbors will come outside along the neighborhood route to cheer our fifth graders on to successful middle school careers. We anticipate they will be cruising the route from 1:00-2:00. Feel free to make signs or banners with positive messages for our fifth graders or decorate your yard or car in any other way that is appropriate to recognize their accomplishments. (Only Whitmore-Bolles staff members will be allowed in the parking lot.)

Fifth grade families are encouraged to decorate their cars as well so that they are easily recognizable as they drive through the neighborhood. We are requesting that only parents or other adults drive the students and that everyone maintains a safe speed in the parking lot and through the neighborhood. We’re pretty sure your students will want you to go extra slow so that they can enjoy the positive attention they will recieve!

Your input needed! Please complete a survey concerning school re-opening for the 2020-21 school year.

The District’s School Re-Opening Committee will be looking for parent input through periodic surveys. Please respond so that your voice can be heard and included as the Committee works through possible re-opening plans.

The first survey can be accessed by clicking the following link. School ReOpen Committee Parent Survey #1 Please complete the survey by June 12th.

 For translation assistance to complete the survey, parents may call 313-580-2532 Monday June 8th through Friday June 12th 8:30a.m. through 4:30p.m. 

We appreciate your participation in the process! Please keep an eye out for future surveys as well. Thanks.

Pennies for Patients Fundraiser wrap up

Thanks so much to all who participated in our fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society this year. Our campaign was interrupted by the school closure, but many students brought their coin collection boxes to the belongings pickup Tuesday. Teachers turned in any boxes that were found in student desks.

If you still have coin boxes at home, you can either make a donation online to your student’s account, or call the office at 313-827-6800 to make arrangements to drop off the money. I am here today until 2:30.

We’re hoping to wrap things up this week and will be announcing fundraising totals as soon as we get everything counted. It’s a joy to work in an environment with such caring and generous students, families and staff. #whitmorestrong

TikTok Tuesday

Was great seeing all your smiling faces today! We miss you!

Medication & Student belongings pickup today for all students, 9am-1pm! Also, please return library books. GSRP applications will be available.

Picking up student belongings

The day has finally arrived when parents of our preschoolers (ECSE, GSRP) – 5th graders can pick up their student’s favorite hoodie, winter coat, 2 pairs of shoes, assortment of little toys, broken pencils, secret diaries, fresh as a daisy lunch boxes or any other wonderful items left in their desk or locker!

(Hope we all have at least a little sense of humor left at this point!)



Teachers have bagged up student items and we are ready to go! We will have tables set up by grade level on the sidewalk outside the office, next to the parking lot. (We’ll be in the vestibule if weather is bad.)

There will also be a table with items from the lost & found and GSRP applications will be available for pickup.

Here are the ground rules:

  • A parent, guardian or family member over the age of 18 with a photo id must pick up the items.
  • If your student has medications that need to be picked up, a parent or guardian must be present to sign for them. Any meds not picked up Tuesday will be disposed of.
  • Anyone coming to pick up items must be wearing a mask.
  • Social distancing of 6 ft must be observed while waiting your turn.
  • No one will be allowed to enter the building

Returning school materials

This will also be the time for students to return items to the building. There will be bins at each grade level station where items should be placed. Students should return:

  • Media Center books
  • Classroom reading books
  • Reading bags
  • Any other items borrowed from teachers or the building (Except Chromebooks. We’ll be collecting those later.)

Yearbook Update

Lifetouch is partially on shut down, so our Yearbooks have not been shipped yet. We expect to receive them sometime in late summer and will be sure to get them to everyone who paid. Thanks for your patience!

Class composite photos will be available on June 2 for those who ordered fall pictures.

We miss you, so we hope all families will take advantage of the opportunity to bring a bag load of student goodies home for the summer. As we do with lost & found items at the end of each school year, any items not picked up on June 2 will be donated or discarded.

If you know you are unable to come on June 2, please contact Mrs. Waddell before Tuesday to work out other arrangements. Email at waddelk@dearbornschools.org or leave a voicemail at 313-827-6004. If we hear from you, we’ll hold on to items until the arranged alternative pickup time.

Take care Whitmore families! See you soon.
