Battle Against Hunger

Box of Canned Goods

Cold Weather Guidelines

Thermometer showing low degrees with a snowflake

Hard to believe that the cold weather is already here!

The guidelines we use to determine if students will go outside for recess or have inside line-up for arrival are a combined temperature and windchill of below 20 degrees.  Therefore, if the weather is below 20 degrees, students will remain inside for recess and we will allow students to line up inside the building starting at 8:30 am.

Please remember to always dress appropriately for the weather; students will need snow pants, boots, hats, scarves and gloves to ensure their safety and well-being when we have outdoor recess!

More information on district policy for weather related closures and elementary indoor recess is available through this link to Superintendent Maleyko’s blog.

HABIT TIME! Be Proactive!

On October 30th, the Whitmore students attended the Habit Time Assembly for Habit 1: Be Proactive!  They engaged in meaningful activities and discussions on ways they can be proactive, both at school and at home. We’d like to thank to our Emcees: Sophia Nowak, Calyssa Post and Cynthia Saeed for doing a terrific job presenting and facilitating this event.

Pix For Ribbon Cutting Clipart


The Dearborn Recreation & Parks Dept. along with Mayor O’Reilly and Councilman Dave Bazzy are planning for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on this Friday, November 3 at 3:30pm for the NEW playscape at Whitmore Bolles park.  We’d love to have some of the children from Whitmore Bolles Elementary to participate in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ceremony and photo opportunity should take no more than 15-20 minutes.
