Communities In Schools decided to create an annual day of giving back to the wonderful community in which we serve. We plan to give back to our neighbors as they give to us! Monday, January 15th started our Annual CIS Day in the Community: A Day of Giving. Each staff member took routes for Meals On Wheels in order to partner up with another great non-profit within our community, The Kitchen. We also went out into the community to give information to other businesses to spread awareness of Communities In Schools and how we have impacted Wichita Falls for the last 11 years. Way to go CIS!

Communities In Schools is the nation’s largest dropout prevention organization.
The mission of Communities In Schools is to champion the connection of needed community resources with schools to help young people successfully learn, stay in school and prepare for life.
By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children’s unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. The result: teachers are free to teach, and students – many in jeopardy of dropping out – have the opportunity to focus on learning.
For over 30 years, Communities In Schools has worked to ensure that every child needs and deserves these “Five Basics”:
- A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
- A safe place to learn and grow
- A healthy start and a healthy future
- A marketable skill to use upon graduation
- A chance to give back to peers and community
