Whitney Elementary School Needs Your Help!
Whitney Elementary School is located in the Southeast Region of the Clark County School District at 5005 Keenan Ave., Las Vegas, Nevada 89122. About 90 percent of the school’s 575 students are on free and reduced lunch. The surrounding school neighborhood consists largely of RV parks and daily-weekly-monthly hotels where a large percentage of Whitney families live. Many others live in multi-family situations, hoping their financial stability improves. All of these families tend to be extremely transient, with varying needs. With all this in mind, it is the passion of Whitney’s staff to ensure every student feels safe, nourished and educated. Therefore, each Friday school personnel assist 150+ families by supplying them with food for the weekend. In addition, the school provides school supplies, clothing, shoes and toiletries for students who need these items, and snacks for the before-school tutoring program. Whitney Elementary School continues to seek donations in any form as well as volunteers to mentor and/or tutor their students.
