COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS OF ROME AND FLOYD COUNTY ‘ON THE READY’ FOR UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR, COME WHAT MAY

Communities in Schools of Rome and Floyd County is ‘on the ready’ for the upcoming school year, come what may.

Gregory Wooten, Executive Director, asserts that his organization is ready to respond to the needs of Rome and Floyd County schools during the 2020-21 school year, whatever those needs may be in these days of coronavirus.

CIS activities such as the Cardboard Challenge will proceed as planned in the new school year (as of this time); cancellations and postponements will occur as needed, adds Wooten.

Wooten indicates that CIS adjusted its efforts to help kids succeed in school (and in life) when the coronavirus outbreak first hit back in March; their goal was (and is) to help those students adjust to the ‘new norm’.

Communities in Schools is a nationwide dropout prevention organization that empowers students to stay in school and achieve in life. CIS of Rome/Floyd currently seeks donations from the public to support that mission locally, says Wooten. Donors may reach out to him at gwooten@cisrome-floyd.org or via phone at (706) 802-5740.

Mentor and volunteer training is on hold for now, though Wooten hopes that it will resume soon. CIS is in search of new mentors and volunteers.
