Dance music was playing, balloons were flying and Whittier Wildcats were high-fiving our freshmen and new students as they got off their buses for the first day of school this morning. Teachers clapped them in from the front courtyard and hallway as students headed for the auditorium. They will have an extended homeroom today where they will learn their schedules, go over the handbook and find their lockers. They will also meet each of their teachers as they go through an abbreviated daily schedule. Thank you to our Key Club members who are helping freshmen learn their way around. We look forward to welcoming all students tomorrow.
