At Walt Whitman, we believe that parental involvement is critical to student development. We offer a number of activities to connect parents to our school community, including an active PTO and our School Governance Council. We are proud to offer extended day services for those families that are in need of before and after school care, tutoring and homework help. Camp Whitman is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on all school days. With Milwaukee Recreation and the YMCA, Whitman also offers after school activities.
