Supplies for Student Success!

This year we are focusing on supplies most needed for middle school students to be successful in their upcoming academic year with a focus on basic need items in addition to school supplies. Your support helps relieve the costly burden placed on teachers and families each year and will impact over 5,000 students across the schools CISS serves. Thank you in advance of your support.
