Expanded Learning Opportunities at Whitman Elementary School​

Expanded Learning Centers are your child’s opportunity to plug into a variety of before, during and after school academic and enrichment activities, such as sports, the arts, STEM, and mentorship. These centers are a collaboration of youth-serving community partners in Tacoma, powered by Tacoma Whole Child ​Partnership. Together we are dedicated to the social, emotional, and academic success of your child. We aim to encourage, support, and challenge while having fun!​
