Communities in Schools of Rome-Floyd County is excited to partner with the Rome City Schools during the 2022-23 school year.
Gregory Wooten, Executive Director, says that his organization will continue its mentor/volunteer program, along with the Cardboard Challenge normally held in the Spring. In addition, a Site Coordinator will be positioned at Rome Middle School for the new school year to ensure that students are prepared to enter high school. The post is being filled by Emmanuel Woods.
Also new for this year – food pantries to be established at every school in the Rome City Schools system. Wooten states that students’ basic needs must be met in order for them to be successful in school.
CIS Rome-Floyd also intends to support RCS efforts to provide scholarships to middle school students via the REACH scholars program, asserts Wooten.
A program is additionally in the works through which the local non-profit will offer support to parents of RCS students. This is intended to encourage parental engagement.
Those who would like to support Communities in Schools of Rome-Floyd County are urged by Wooten to visit their website at www.cisrome-floyd.org. Training is now being offered to those interested in serving as a mentor or as a volunteer.
