Back In Schools and Beyond
As kids return to schools this Fall, Communities In Schools® (CIS™) is doing whatever it takes to provide them with the tools and resources to succeed. This August, affiliates across the country are holding school supply drives, back to school gatherings, and “reorientations” to prepare students for the upcoming school year.
