Our Partnership with CIS
Whitnel Elementary entered into a partnership with Communities In Schools a few years ago. Our main partnership is called the Hand in Hand project. Hand in Hand allows faith communities and community people to be involved with the school to supply much needed resources. Much of the schools' needs involve volunteers. One of the volunteer postions we have at WES are Lunch Buddies. We have several community members who volunteer to come one day a week to visit his/her student/buddy. Just sharing a simple school lunch opens opportunities for friendship. These generous people provide friendship and compassion. The volunteers serve as role models for their buddies. If you would like to be a Lunch Buddy, please let us know.
