Spanish & Portuguese Club a BIG Hit!


Since the introduction of our Spanish Club, parents and members have been eager to join in the fun and introduce their own languages and cultures. Most recently we have added a Portuguese Club and soon will also be adding a French Club. These different Club's have been a great way for parents and members to not only introduce other Club members to their languages, but to also teach them about their cultures. Thank you to staff member Maria A. for starting this up and a BIG thank you to all of our parent volunteers!

Introducing our NEW Whaler Fan Club


Another great new program that has been started by staff members, Joe M. and TJ is our "Whaler Fan Club". TJ and Joe have formed a club that attends varsity, junior varsity and even CPS basketball games. Many of the Club members who have joined are also basketball players, making the experience for them even more exciting. The Whaler Fan Club has become a great opportunity to teach Club members the importance of good sportsmanship. Each member must follow the "positive cheering only" rule, which states that each member may only speak and cheer positively of both the Whalers and the visiting team while at the games. "It's been great for our Club members to see the older kids playing. The high school teams also really enjoy the support from our members" mentioned Joe and TJ about the new Club.



If your Club member would like to participate, please look for Joe or TJ here at the Club!

Basketball Season in Full Swing
Basketball 2013

Our basketball program is now in full swing. With 34 teams and almost 350 players, this year's program is one of our biggest yet! We've already had plenty of nail biting games with tight scores and overtimes. Thank you to our over 50 volunteer coaches we have this season. We could not have a successful basketball program without you!


We would also like to thank Mac Davis Flooring for volunteering their time and services again this year to refinish our gym floor. The floor looks fantastic!
