This month's student spotlight focuses on Hilliard Middle-Senior High School. Hilliard has so many exceptional students we couldn't pick just one!   

Ryland D. consistently arrives at tutoring with a smile and greeting. Ryland tries his best, no matter what task he is asked to perform. Ryland's biggest gain has been in the area of fluency. He is showing great progress in this area of reading.

Mackenzie M. always has a positive attitude. She puts forth 100 percent effort. She is engaged in group discussions and asks questions when she is unsure of herself. She has set a goal to have A/B honor roll this grading period (reading is usually what keeps her off honor roll). Mackenzie's comprehension has really improved since coming to tutoring on a regular basis.

Hanna K. loves to read. She enjoys having discussions about books she has read, especially Harry Potter and anything related to World War II and the Jews. Hanna is always on time and is respectful to everyone she works with. Hanna's fluency has improved since participating in the tutoring program. Hanna is actively involved in extra-curricular activities at school. She is a cheerleader and is also in the band. She is one busy girl!
  CIS kids across Nassau County continue to make strides and achieve new heights in academics and beyond.

The All In for Students honors the remarkable dedication of CIS staff, educators, community partners, and our alumni, who go all in for students, empowering them to stay in school, graduate and go on to brighter futures.
