WELCOME TO 3rd GRADE AT MISHAWAKA CATHOLIC SCHOOL. I AM MARIA WHITAKER AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO A BLESSED AND FUN FILLED SCHOOL YEAR. THIS IS MY 14TH YEAR OF TEACHING AND I WANT TO KEEP ALL LINES OF COMMUNICATION OPEN. MY HUSBAND JOHN AND I HAVE THREE CHILDREN, JAMISON (SOPHOMORE AT PURDUE), OLIVIA (JUNIOR AT MARIAN), AND BLAKE (8TH GRADER AT MISHAWAKA CATHOLIC).  WE ARE ACTIVE MEMBERS AT ST. JOSEPH PARISH IN MISHAWAKA.  WE MOVED TO THIS AREA IN 2005 AND LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL COMMUNITY; THE SUPPORT, THE LOVE, AND THE FRIENDSHIPS WE HAVE MADE.  ALONG WITH THE WEEKLY NEWSLETTER, I WILL ALSO POST TO THIS PAGE ALL HOMEWORK, IMPORTANT INFORMATION, AND ANY UPDATES.
