Principal’s Message…

Welcome to Whitin Elementary School and thank you for taking the time to explore our website. Whitin Elementary School is a sprawling two storied elementary school housing Grades 3-5. We were newly formed in 2012 due to the building of the new Uxbridge High School. Grades 3 and 4 relocated from Taft Elementary School to join Grade 5. Our elementary school has 17 classrooms with an enrollment of approximately 400 students from diverse backgrounds. It is the mission of the school to help students: communicate effectively, think analytically, and to make smart choices. Whitin Elementary School is committed to creating a community of life-long learners. We want students to be RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE and READY to learn when they come to Whitin Elementary School on a daily basis.

Our staff works hard to make Whitin Elementary School a great place to be in the Town of Uxbridge. We strongly support the need to educate the whole child. Our INCREDIBLY DEDICATED STAFF works diligently to ensure that each child meets his or her full potential. Our goal at Whitin Elementary School is to provide students with an excellent standards based curriculum, keeping in mind that all students do not learn at the same pace or in the same way, offering support to help them reach those standards. In addition, we believe that an educational program is not complete without art, music, technology, library, physical education and health. In Grade 5, students are offered Band where they can learn how to play a band instrument through lessons given. In Grade 4, students can sign up to sing in the chorus and learn to play the recorder.

Here at Whitin Elementary School, we place strong emphasis on reading, writing, and math skills which is important to the success of our students. Therefore, our students are provided research based reading approaches, such as guided reading practices and small group instruction that align with the Massachusetts Core Standards. All programs offer support for struggling learners and enrichment to advanced students. RTI (Response to Intervention) is built into the teaching schedules to address these students’ needs.

We believe in open communication between home and school. We welcome and value parental involvement as an integral part of our school community. We are fortunate to have a very active PTO in our community working along with and supporting the school and district initiatives. Our volunteers help to make our school a nurturing environment for learning.

In addition, Whitin Elementary School has been recognized by the Commonwealth of Mass as a GREEN SCHOOL, receiving an award on April 24, 2013 and again on May 26, 2016. Students and staff are dedicated to reducing , reusing and recycling. We feel that learning about conservation and preservation of our environment is important for the future of our world.

Again, welcome to Whitin Elementary School. We look forward to a healthy, grateful, and fun 2017-2018 school year.
