Mark your Calendar's Parents Night Out is May 5th! 

Parents’ Night Out is the largest fundraiser for the whole year and has supported so many important investments at Aiken like classroom smart boards, teacher wish list items, subscriptions for the school, field trips, etc.   See the flyer for more details.  




After many months of hard work, muralist Sherrie Nedderman has completed the mural on the wall of the cafeteria. It is absolutely stunning! We are grateful to the Foundation for West Harford Public School and the PTO for funding this project.


On Tuesday, January 17th from 5:30-7:30 we are offering an Open House for families to view the mural. There will be a scavenger hunt to find different images and Aiken symbols in the mural and the 5th grade class will be hosting a bake sale to raise money for end of year activities. We hope you can stop by!



Each school community will host an information session on WHPS Elementary Social-Emotional/Civics Curriculum this winter. Aiken's parent/guardian information session will be held on Tuesday, January 24 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the Aiken Library Media Center.
