“Good morning! Welcome to school! Make it a great day!” Whitney Elementary students are welcomed each morning as they arrive at school by a team of friendly 3rd- and 4th-grade students wearing special blue “Morning Greeter” vests. Who are Morning Greeters, and what do they do? Morning Greeters is a new program made up of a rotating team of positive, caring students who want to make Whitney a friendlier, more welcoming place. They started volunteering in December, and they now greet arriving students entering our school’s front gate each day. It’s a great way to start the day of learning!
