An Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude is not just a season; it is a way of life.    At Whiteside Middle School, we work hard all year to instill an attitude of gratitude.  We are thankful for our inquisitive students, dedicated parents, and our passionate faculty and staff.  We are thankful for our public education system and the role it plays in a democratic society. 

Enjoy these wonderful photos from our students preparing last week's Thanksgiving Feast.

Our Boys Mentoring Group has been spending their morning time greeting our students and families as they arrive to school.  They offer encouraging and inspiring messages to our students first thing in the morning.  It is a great way to start our day!  This group works hard to promote a climate of acceptance and inclusion in our school.
