Beak Week Celebrates the Poultry Industry in Downtown Goldsboro

Communities in Schools of Wayne County joined the celebration  of our poultry industry at the 2014 “Beak Week” festival in downtown Goldsboro.  Communities in Schools of Wayne County operated an assortment of huge inflatables that were the focus and delight of children.  Volunteers from Eastern Wayne High’s art department staffed the face painting booth while the school’s Key Club membership staffed the inflatables!

About Communities In Schools

CIS is  the nation’s largest dropout prevention organization.  Our mission is to surround students with a community of support,empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.  By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children’s unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. The result: teachers are free to teach, and students – many in jeopardy of dropping out – have the opportunity to focus on learning. 

For over 30 years, Communities In Schools has worked to ensure that every child needs and deserves these “Five Basics”:

  • A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
  • A safe place to learn and grow
  • A healthy start and a healthy future
  • A marketable skill to use upon graduation
  • A chance to give back to peers and community
CIS works tirelessly to prevent an at-risk child from becoming another dropout statistic.  We bring community based resources into our schools to work with students and their families.  CIS works because we are founded on the concept that students can and will achieve.  Resources are coordinated to meet the academic and social needs of the students that we work with.  We coordinate the delivery of these resources at the school site through our Success Coaches.
