Whiting Community School is hosting another "Then Feed Just One" packing event in February 2018. This year, the goal is to raise $6,000 so that the entire student body of our school can participate in this great event. Raising $6,000 equals about 38,000 meals to send to Honduras to give to people in need. It costs about $30 for an adult to package for an hour and a half.
Last year's event made about 28,000 meals. Parents can support in two ways. Parents can support a student and help pay their $30 to allow the student to work or parents can donate $30 and help at the event along side the students. Donations towards the event are tax deductible if a check is written to "Then Feed Just One." Donations can be given to any National Honor Society member or can be dropped off in the school office. Watch for more information about this event and other donation sites.
Come and enjoy a night of holiday music put on by our Middle School & High School music students! The Middle School and High School Choir and Band will perform some holiday selections conducted by our music teacher, Alicia Vande Hoef. The concert starts at 7:00pm. We hope to see you there!
On Monday December 11th, 2017 there will be a Teddy Bear Toss during the Varsity Boys Basketball game that night. Students and Parents are encouraged to bring a non-expensive, new and unused toy (MUST BE NEW AND UNUSED) to have donated to Toys for Tots. Please encourage students to show up to the game with a cheap new teddy bear or stuffed animal to throw onto the court. Please consider participating in this great event!
Come and enjoy a night of Holiday Winter music from the Elementary Students, directed by music teacher, Alicia Vandehoef. The students will sing a few holiday songs, as well as the 5th Grade Band students. There will also be a Bake Sale from 6:15pm-7:00pm in the concession stand in the main lobby and the bake sale will also continue after the concert is over. Funds raised from the bake sale support the Whiting Community School Music Program. Buy a treat and enjoy the music put on by our Elementary students!
Monday November 27th is PACK THE GYM NIGHT for BASKETBALL. This is the first home game of the Varsity Basketball Season. Junior High Boys play first at 4:00 pm against the Heartland Christian Eagles then the Varsity Girls face-off against the Eagles at 6:00 pm. Following the Varsity Girls, it's the Varsity Boys' turn against the Eagles at 7:30pm. COME SUPPORT THE WHITING WARRIORS AND PACK THE GYM ON MONDAY NIGHT!
Start your holiday shopping while helping our Junior and Senior students get to Washington D.C.! There will be over 25 small businesses and crafters, a large bake sale, raffle prizes, and concession stand. Come for coffee and enjoy our large assortment of homemade baked goods, shop with a lot of great small businesses and crafters, sign up for raffle prizes, and stay for lunch. Thank you for supporting our students.
The Whiting Junior and Senior students are selling Kristy Kreme Doughnuts to raise money for their upcoming trip to Washington D.C. Items for sale include glazed, chocolate iced, lemon filled, raspberry filled, or Kreme filled doughnuts. They are also selling Krispy Kreme signature coffees and gift certificates that are good for 1 dozen glazed doughnuts that can be redeemed at any Krispy Kreme location. The gift certificates would make great “stocking stuffers” and also fit nicely into a card for someone you want to thank during the holiday season. The last day to order is November 30th and the delivery date is December 6th. Contact any Junior or Senior student to place your order or call the school office at 712-455-2468 and we will take your order over the phone. Thank you for supporting our students!
