Bring CIS Back into Brunswick County Schools!
CIS is back open at Belville, Town creek and Southprt. But please plan to attend the Brunswick County school board meeting on September 6 at 6 pm at the government complex in Bolivia to express your concerns.
Dear Brunswick County Elementary School Families,
CIS is CANCELLING before and after school program with only 2 business days to make arrangements and parks and rec full. The program you and I have relied on is closed with little to no notice. Sign this petition to tell CIS that we are supportive and IN NEED of this program and the excellent care they espouse and have achieved in years past!
CIS is a national (non-profit) program with the mission “to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life”. For Southport Elementary School, this program provided a safe after school environment, for our kids to work on their homework, so parents can work a full day without worrying about latch key kids and the inherent problems that can arise when children go unsupervised. Their mission goes on to say “Young people thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they also have a sense of belonging to a caring community (communitiesinschools.org)”.Please show Brunswick County CIS that we depend on them to live up to their Mission Statement! Please sign your name to support reinstatement of the CIS before and after school program.
Update: CIS released a statement that a petition is not the same as signing up. Well let's make "communities" in schools listen to their community ! Keep signing and keep up the comments! And PLEASE share
