More than 8,400 Reasons to Help!
"Back to school supplies can cost more than $150 per child and for a family of four, that is hard to afford! Every year, students and families approach our Site Coordinators for help getting the basic materials they need Stephanie Morlino, Field Operations and former Site Coordinator; Aspen Community School
HELP ensure kids have the school supplies they need to start the year ready to engage!
Did you know that approximately 9,500 students in our Santa Fe public schools qualify for free or reduced cost meals at school (a federal indicator of poverty)? That means that more than 70% of Santa Fe's public school students are at risk of starting the new school year without access to the essential tools they need to learn.
Many Communities In Schools (CIS) students face barriers that can prevent them from engaging and learning. With the new school year, the CIS Team will continue to innovate and respond so our students stay healthy, connected and engaged.
Whether our student's need notebooks, backpacks, or other essentials - YOUR contribution will allow Communities In Schools do WHATEVER it takes to ensure students have the resources they need to engage and learn!
