Help Us Help CIS!

Once again, the Archdale Public Library is a drop-off point for school supplies for Community In Schools.

This weekend is an excellent time to purchase extra school supplies and drop them at at the Library.

CIS is a local nonprofit organization that connects local volunteers with students to prevent school dropout. Communities In Schools works to ensure that every child needs and deserves these “Five Basics”:

  •  one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
  •  safe place to learn and grow
  •  healthy start and a healthy future
  •  marketable skill to use upon graduation
  •  chance to give back to peers and community
