Let's hear from them, on how their time at Whittier was, what they will miss and what they will look forward to.The WildChat team would love to host your 5th grader, by themselves or with a friend.

Summer Math

Looking for extra math practice or enrichment over the summer?


Registration for the summer session of SMART Hephzibah supplemental math instruction is open through June 11. All summer classes are a sneak preview of the math curriculum for next year. The “regular” classes will preview and practice grade-level material, and the advanced classes will go beyond grade-level material. The 7-week program for 1st through 5th graders will have classes in the afternoons and early evenings from June 20 – August 10 with no classes the week of July 3. The 1st grade class is for students to attend with their parents. Sessions will be taught by District 97 teachers over Zoom. The cost is $84, and financial aid is available.
