  • Whitney Family: 

    There will be a PTA meeting Tuesday,  January 23rd @ 6 p.m. in the Whitney cafeteria.   This is our charter meeting to actually sign up to be a part of the Whitney PTA and help plan our first event. We will also be discussing what the steering committee has talked about as far as standing rules, possible events, and officers.

    Through the PTA, you can help strengthen the quality of life and education in the community. The PTA is a valuable link between home, school, and the community, providing everyone with important information benefiting your child/children. In this association, you join with parents, teachers, administrators, school board members, and other citizens to enhance opportunities for the education, health, safety, and welfare of all children.


    We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, January 23rd.

    Please send nonperishable food items to school with your child January 8-January 31. The class that collects the most food items will receive a whole class root beer float party. The elementary school within the Yakima School District that collects the most food will receive air time on the news as well as a trophy to display in their school.
    Monetary donations can also be collected, online only! A virtual fund drive is set up online at:
    These monetary donations are converted to pounds of food and added into the school’s overall total. It really boosts a school’s total when monetary donations come in at! $1 is equal to about 6 pounds of food.
    With 1 in 5 children being hungry in our area, this truly is a “kids helping kids” effort that we can all participate in and be proud of!
