Communities in Schools (CIS) provides “wrap around” services which identify what kids need to stay in school and succeed. CIS has a corps of 110 volunteer tutors working with students weekly to support academic achievement. We know this one-on-one relationship with a reliable adult improves student success. During the 2014-15 school year, 86% of 156 students who had academic goals did achieve their goals. This included improving class grades, overall GPA, test scores or completing homework.
So far this school year, 12 CIS Site Coordinators devoted 963 hours to case management services for 276 students at ten schools. 2,331 additional students and 421 parents participated in CIS programs. We anticipate doubling the number of students in case management services this semester.
To support this important work, volunteer tutors are now needed in the following areas for all grade levels, Pre-K through high school:
ü  Bilingual tutors
ü  Math
ü  English Language Learners  
ü  Science
ü  Language Arts
ü  After School Programs
ü  After School One-on-One
To sign up as a volunteer, go to www.cisnm.org and click on the “help” tab at the top of the page. Or to learn more, call volunteer coordinator Cynthia Torcasso at 505-954-1880.

Nominations for Club Officers were presented November 10.  The slate proposed by the nominating committee was accepted by acclamation. Election of Officers will occur at the December 10 meeting. The nominating committee was chaired by immediate Past President Cheryl Ford-Mente. Tom Simon will, of course, assume the Past President position July 1, 2016.

Rotary News
Beware of new email scam claiming to be from Foundation Chair Klinginsmith
A new email purporting to be from Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair Ray Klinginsmith is targeting Rotary members. The email falsely claims that members can become End Polio Now ambassadors if they email club information to a Gmail address within 48 hours. The fraudulent email has the subject line “BECOME AN END POLIO AMBASSADOR” and is sent from a fake email address. This is a scam. Rotary staff is working to resolve the issue. Avoid being the victim of scams by deleting any email that appears suspicious.
