CIS of Atlanta is one of the largest Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) partners in the country! The students at Seaborn Lee Elementary received free books, and in preparation for Valentine's Day, they had fun writing quotes on a large poster explaining why "reading is sweet"! The students also signed "thank you" cards for Macy's, the primary sponsor of this year's RIF program!

Our 2012 Holiday Gift Drive was a huge success, thanks to our friends at WAOK, Walmart, and wonderful suporters who donated gifts for our students! These are a few photos from the gift drive along with photos of students who received the gifts and gift cards.
For several years, CIS of Atlanta Site Coordinators have effectively used our partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to support students and their families. Items received from the Food Bank have ranged from fitness drinks to frozen poultry, with a wide variety of kitchen and household products in between. These items have been used as rewards for students who have met goals, incentives to increase parent attendance at events, holiday gift baskets, and in some cases, emergency support for families in need.
