    D  aMt. Whitney High School ta  The Pioneer P.R.I.D.E committee was very pleased with our number of incidents in What’s New?

    the first semester and how there was a decrease in most months.  

    We believe this is a direct reflection of our teachers communicating with our Counselors, Administration team, and support staff in being proactive with interventions. The P.R.I.D.E committee is very excited to see what the second semester has to offer and appreciates your continued support in helping to show

    One simple way Kai shows     Spotlight creating PRIDE on our campus.


    Harvesting Hope


    There are students on this campus who show Pioneer PRIDE in and out of school. Last weekend four students from Mt. Whitney showed their PRIDE by volunteering their Saturday morning to pick oranges with a local organization called Harvesting Hope. The four students, Evyn Viveros, Elizabeth Perez, Kimberly Velasco (sophomores), and Alyssa Elick (Freshman) joined other students from Tulare County schools and picked oranges from trees donated by a local farmer. After the oranges have been picked they will go to local food banks to be distributed to people in need. This is the first time Mt. Whitney students have volunteered with Harvesting Hope and the students who participated look forward to doing it again and take more Mt. Whitney students with them. About their experience, Evyn said, “There were a lot of people there and it was a lot of fun to do something important while representing Mt. Whitney.” Although it was cold and hard work, the students said they want to volunteer with Harvesting Hope again because they learned how important it is to work as a team and how good it feels to be able to contribute to their community in a positive way. Great job Evyn, Elizabeth, Kimberly, and Alyssa. Way to represent Mt. Whitney! If you would like to learn more about Harvesting Hope, click the link. http://www.unitedwaytc.org/hope.html

    Pioneer PRIDE is by meeting her students at her door every period and shaking their hands. It builds the foundation for an important and meaningful relationship with them that becomes part of every aspect of classroom life. Something Kai would like everyone to know about PRIDE and the Committee is that we know everyone at Mt. Whitney has the students’ best interest at heart and if we all work together and communicate, we can create a campus that is a place we all want to be. If you ever have questions, comments, or suggestions, please bring them to the committee. All are welcome. Go Pioneers!
