If you need ideas of what items to donate to the STUFF-THE-BUS FOOD DRIVE, THIS LIST MAY HELP YOU. The Whitewater Community Food Pantry services over 520 families in the Whitewater Unified School District, and the numbers go even higher at times. Some people come seasonally, or once-a-month and some come each and every week. A wide variety of items are donated from just as wide of a variety of individuals and organizations to keep the pantry well-stocked.
We are accepting warm clothing, especially jackets, snow
pants, caps, scarves, gloves and mittens. We are also accepting clean baby
items or household items, but we cannot accept summer clothing or children's
toys. Please take them to the Clothes Closet. Today I had to take my whole car
full, just from last week and today. We have enough books, hangers and plastic
bags for quite a while.
Coach Chad Carstens: "The Whippet
boys had a great day on the grass as they all ran very strong. Jon
Zimdars lead his team with a third place overall finish propelling the boys to
a respectable 3rd place team finish. He absolutely attacked the second loop of
the course. He was moving forward as others were fading back. I am so proud of
the way he displayed all the things that Whippet Cross Country is all about -
competing to the fullest extent. James Ehlen ran respectable to finish 12th to
earn second team all-conference honors. Sophomore Jimmy King earned honorable
mention honors finishing in 18th overall. Rounding out the team scoring were
Jason Shelbourn in 39th, Nathan Barrett in 43rd, Wentao Guo in 49th and Alfredo
Gomez in 61st. Six out the 7 runners on varsity are seniors and were essential
in securing a third place finish today. On the JV side of things, Jacob Korf
paced the team with a 14th place individual finish and catapulted the team to a
second place overall finish. Also scoring for the team were Justin Brantmeier
in 20th, Steven Witt 21st, Jon Brunner 29th, Connor Laue 36th, and Mitchell
Dalzin 40th, Jack Downs in 47th. Rounding out the competitors were Nathaniel
Jeppsen in 51st and Nathan Cagney in 57th. Times on this day were slow due to
the rain over the last few days but we don't race the clock in a meet like
this. It's all about placing as high as possible as that makes up the team
score. On both levels, these young men understood the difference between the
regular season and the championship portion. I am lucky I get to work with kids
like this on a day to day basis. They represented Whitewater very well and with
high class and dignity.

(Oct. 16) Last week, two classes of Whitewater High School students had the unique experience of spending a day immersed in hands-on learning and scientific investigation at Bluff Creek State Natural Area.
A ten minute bus ride was all the time it took for the
students to discover a natural area teaming with plant and animal diversity.
Not only did the students see how land managers foster plant and animal
species' diversity and resiliency, but they joined in and learned by doing.
