Communities in Schools (CIS) is one program that is offered at Passmore Elementary. The programs mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Lead by our site supervisor Sara Weir, CIS provides support in many areas such as academic, behavior, community outreach, family engagement, physical and mental health, college readiness, basic needs, life skills, and enrichment.
One opportunity coordinated through CIS is the DoSeum afterschool program. The DoSeum program provides a series of activities and design challenges that allow students to incorporate both social-emotional and critical thinking skills. After school sessions are provided for ten weeks at a time during our fall and spring portions of the school year.
