Celebrating Our Students' Accomplishments

By Julia Flynn | June 28, 2021 Enrichment Graduation

This June, Communities In Schools® (CIS™) recognizes that it has been an exceptionally difficult year for many of our students. Through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters, racial reckonings, and more — our students have persevered. For this reason, affiliates across the country have gone beyond the classroom to celebrate our students’ accomplishments with spirit weeks, gift baskets, parades, and end-of-year celebrations.
