Will Beckley Elementary School
The Will Beckley Elementary is the second school sponsored by our club. The school serves approximately 850 students of which approximately 75% are Hispanic. The school is dynamic in its strategy to make the children believe in themselves and reach their academic goals. The Rotary Club of Las Vegas is working to give this school the best financial support possible in order to make a definite difference in learning and lives of the students.
Some of the programs we are involved in are:
Goodie Two Shoes – Over 400 children were outfitted with shoes and socks
Santa Clothes – Fifteen of our children were chosen to benefit receiving clothing right before Christmas.
Disney Musical Aladdin – Performed by the students last fall. Rotarians supported this event with buying ads and attending.
Career Day – Rotarians take time out of their busy schedule to speak to the children regarding their professions.
Reading Day – Reading to the children at the school.
This past spring the “Las Vegas Rotary Science Lab” became a reality because of our financial support and is used daily by all students who love the experience.
