WHITNEY COMMUNITY SCHOOL IN ACTION

Come visit the Community School room where we have a full food pantry, a clothing closet and a welcoming space for families to access Wifi for house or job hunting, parenting groups, early learning classes, student-led groups, PTO meetings, and many more. The resources are endless. Contact Susan Dennis if you have any questions.
