We are Whittier Elementary Cardinals.
We are flying high with respect for ourselves and others.
We come prepared to work hard with a positive attitude.
We are responsible for the choices we make.
Today is a new day.
By working together and using great expectations,


  1. We will value one another as unique and special individuals.

  2. We will not laugh at or make fun of a person's mistakes, use sarcasm or putdowns.

  3. We will use good manners saying please and thank you, excuse me and allow others to go first.

  4. We will cheer each other to success.

  5. We will help one another whenever possible.

  6. We will recognize every effort and applaud it.

  7. We will encourage each other to do our best.

  8. We will practice virtuous living, using the Life Principles.

  9. We will use the Magic Triad.

Cardinals fly so very high,
Blazing new trails through the sky.
We can fly both you and I
Here at Whittier.
Children sharing, people caring
Make the wings that we are wearing.
We can fly both you and I
Here at Whittier.
Whittier, our Whittier,
Children growing, children learning
How to spread their wings and fly
Here at Whittier.
