My name is Ebony Wilson, and I will be your Site Coordinator with Communities In Schools (CIS) at Stiles Elementary. I would like to thank Mr. Sanders for choosing me to move the dial for our students here at Stiles. I am no stranger to CIS as I was and Educational and Career Coordinator with CIS in Charlotte NC for three years. I love the work that we do and excited for excellence for our students and our families, while navigating through Covid-19. Listed below is a brief summary of the services Communities In Schools provides:

  • Academic and Attendance monitoring and support

  • Behavior Management (Decrease disruption & work with staff for increased positive behavior)

  • Volunteers (Promote Personal growth, educational, and cultural enrichment)

  • Community Service Projects (Opportunities provided for students to give back and become active participants within their community), depends on COVID-19…

  • Incentive Programs (for school attendance, academics, leadership)

  • Health/Critical Needs (support w/ examinations/treatment for medical, dental, and visual needs for students without adequate insurance, refer out as needed)

  • Assessment/Counseling (referrals to counseling & psychological services)

  • Parental Involvement Activities (parent workshops and meetings)

  • Family Support (Referrals to community agencies for food, clothing, shelter, and utility assistance)

CIS Elementary Program is designed to prepare students for life, with an emphasis on academics, attendance, and excellent behavior exhibited daily. It is my goal to help our student successfully navigate through school by broadening their perspectives, enhancing their leadership skills, and developing their personal and social attributes while engaging parents to actively participate alongside their student.

Communities In Schools wants to make sure each student gets off to a great start and continues to be successful throughout the school year. Communities In Schools is part of the nation’s largest stay-in-school network. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Please feel free to contact me at ewilson@ciskids.org or emw1115@swcsd.us if you have any questions/concerns or want to share about your student’s success or how I could help. My office is in the main office area. I look forward to building a strong relationship not only with your student, but with you as well!

Sincerely,

Ebony Wilson, MA
