Welcome To Our School

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,

     Welcome to Lena Whitmore Elementary School!  Our school is unique in so many ways.  We average around 250 students, kindergarten through fifth grade. We’re truly the ideal sized elementary school with only two classes at each grade level. We are so excited to once again offer all-day kindergarten in our district! Our 40+ professional, caring, and innovative staff members are joined by numerous University of Idaho students and community volunteers in an effort to help each unique child become a successful, lifelong learner. 

     In addition to the outstanding reading, writing, and math instruction, our staff focuses on teaching the whole child.  Students also receive fabulous instruction in the arts, music, PE, keyboarding, social studies, science, and character education.  Our curriculum is well-rounded and aligned to Common Core and ID State Standards.  This year we will infuse Stephen Covey’s 8 Habits of Highly Effective Kids into our monthly character education lessons. 

     Our staff also spends a great deal of time reviewing student reading and math data three times per year to determine which students needed extra support.  Throughout this year our staff will continue collaborating in these areas to best meet our students’ needs.  We thankfully re-qualified for Title 1 services as a school.

   Please feel free to stop by to share your thoughts, compliments, and suggestions with us at any time.  Be sure to check out our school website at https://lena.msd281.org/; we update it regularly with newsletters from teachers as well as my parent bulletin each week.  You and your child(ren) are important to us, and we feel very privileged to have this opportunity to help make a positive difference in their lives! 

 

Sincerely,

Kendra McMillan, Ed.D.

Principal
