🏠 Housing for Spanish Language and Culture Assistant
Wharton will be hosting Elena Carrero Campos from Spain who will serve as our Spanish Language and Culture Assistant this school year. The purpose of the assistant is to enrich the dual language educational experience of our students and to promote cultural exchange within our school community. In the past, we've had families host the Language Assistant for a semester or the entire school year. If you are interested in hosting Ms. Campos or donating/lending a bicycle for her to use while she's here (September 1 through April 30), please contact Ms. Silva at

🏃🏻‍♂️ Morning Mile

Starting Tuesday, September 5, students in grades 1st-6th may arrive at Wharton between 7:45-8:05 a.m. to run or walk in the field before school as we implement the nationwide Morning Mile program.

Parents, we need your help as supervisors! Sign up here for a weekly shift (or as a substitute).
