Middle School Life Skills

Students at Carver Middle School, Youth Middle School and Loganville Middle School each had the chance to practice their table manners, common courtesies, handshakes and even their knot-tying skills during their CIS Life Skills events during October and November.

Volunteers taught students at various stations on tying a necktie, writing a proper thank-you note, making eye-contact and shaking hands.  Students then practiced their table manners with step-by-step instruction on dining etiquette.



Tuesday

Georgia Apply to College Day

Students at Walnut Grove High School, Monroe Area High School and Loganville High School were able to open and complete college admissions applications during Georgia Apply to College Days sponsored by their school counselors and CIS during the month of November.

Counselors, college recruiters and CIS volunteers were available to help students complete their applications during appointments set aside for students to use computer labs at their schools.


Hundreds of students took the opportunity to apply, and many colleges waived application fees for the event.
