The Big Thank You Project

Mrs. Traywick and Mrs. Taylor's class along with over 600 other Whitesides' students wrote letters and cards to our military servicemen and women to say Thank You for their service to our country. The initiative is sponsored by 95SX and The Bert Morning Show. As a school, our goal was  to collect  600 letters thanking the troops for protecting our country - we collected 646! This small, yet impactful effort, is a great way for our students to give back to the community. Whitesides is proud to take part in this writing initiative! For more information:
