Message from the Principal

Dear Whitehead School Community: 

Welcome to the 23-24 school year! I am excited and honored to serve as your new principal! I look forward to getting to know all of our community and leading this excellent staff. 

Through rigorous academics, quality instruction, social-emotional learning and a caring school environment, our goal is to support every child on their path to college and career success. Our teachers collaborate regularly and believe in the abilities of each and every student. Our intention is that each Whitehead Eagle SOARSs - is Safe, Open-Minded, Attentive and Responsible - each and every day to reach their utmost potential. 

There are many ways to partner with us this year as we work together for the good of all scholars. You can become a volunteer, run for SSC or ELAC, join us for Back to School Night and Open House, or just regularly communicate with your child’s teacher about their academic progress. Please check with the main office for additional information about getting and staying connected. 

We are excited to SOAR together this school year! 

All the Best, 

Alison Evert
