Welcome To Whiteside 2017/2018

WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!!! 

I can't tell you how excited we are to be welcoming back familiar faces and welcoming in new families and staff for the 2017/2018 school year. We have some amazing activities planned in the first few days to develop our Whitesite school community and explore what we need to do to create growth mindsets and become strong learners. Stay tuned...
