The Mobile Food Pantry for June is this Wednesday at 9am at Lowrey School .
Distribution begins at 9. It is first come, first served, and we are only able to donate up to 100 families every month. It is recommended they drive to the donation location early to wait, and we will load their cars with 30lbs of food. If they are unable to drive, we suggest they bring a wagon/cart to take their donations home.
The food mobiles are ran by CIS staff and volunteers. Food is provided by Gleaners. Please see First Food Mobile flyer.
A mobile food pantry will not be held in July. The CIS staff hopes to resume the mobile food pantry in August the first week back in school.

Please see this link to view the file for the summer reading for incoming 9th graders, as assigned by Fordson High School:
According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading. In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, middle school students will be expected to complete Summer Learning before they return in the fall. Teachers will grade the completed summer work when school opens in August.
