Superintendent's Message

August 2022

Dear Whittier Union High School District Community,Monica Oviedo

This month, Whittier Union High School District welcomed back its incredible students for the 2022-23 school year on Aug. 17. It was amazing to see everyone’s school spirit alive again as students, teachers and staff returned back to campuses.
 
Freshman First Day on Aug. 16 was also a huge success. We welcomed nearly 11,000 students back to campuses over the two days and look forward to continuing to provide our students with a high-quality, rigorous education in the new school year.
 
The District held an exciting and successful Day One event for all employees on Aug. 15. The event included a celebration of Mary Ann Fajardo, District Teacher of the Year, a recognition of all the hard work teachers and staff have dedicated over the past few years and a celebration of everyone’s successes.
I am thrilled to begin my first full year serving the District and community as Superintendent. I remain committed to helping our District fulfill its mission to do Whatever It Takes to “Achieve and Maintain Excellence.”
 
As the school year continues, we look forward to watching our students begin participating in various school activities including assemblies, sport events and theater shows. Let’s make this school year another great one!

Sincerely, Dr. Monica Oviedo
