J.G. Whittier Middle School
John Greenleaf Whittier Middle School strives to be a community of learners dedicated to educating adolescents. We are preparing children for the future by providing differentiated education, which will encourage all to be responsible, active, respectful, and tolerant members of our school and society. We provide a safe atmosphere that is intellectually challenging and that recognizes the student’s physical, emotional, social, and academic needs. Frequent and open communication is encouraged to help ensure the effectiveness of the education we provide. We believe that it is the responsibility of the entire school community to share in the education of the middle-school child.
National Junior Honor Society Awards
Pennies for PatientsCongratulations to Mrs. DeBlasis and the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) on a successful fundraising effort!
National Junior Honor Society held a school-wide fundraiser for the month of March. The fundraiser is called “Pennies for Patients” and all money donated goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This program began at JGW 5 years ago. This year we raised the most money ever. JGW will be donating $1,469.80 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
