• Hello all! My name is Thomas Wolf and I am the Site Director for Communities in Schools at Lake Belton Middle School. I grew up in the Central Texas area and graduated from St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas. I work along side Tanya Kendall who is the Case Manager here at LBMS.  She is a recent graduate from University of Mary Hardin-Baylor with her degree in Social Work. We love working with youth, and enjoy teaching and learning from them.  

     

    We meet with students during lunch in small groups as well as other times throughout the week. We have chess club on Mondays, girl's group on Tuesdays, homework help on Wednesdays and boy's group on Thursdays. In addition, at the end of the nine weeks we try to have a game day outside so students can interact with one another. We also have weekly incentives for maintaining good grades and positive behavior.  Please check back often for our calendar of lunch groups, speakers, and field trips that are going on in CIS.  We look forward to working with your students!

    Communities in Schools (CIS) is a national non-profit organization.  We are thrilled to help play a role in your student’s education.

    The goal of CIS is to help students prepare for life by providing programs geared toward educational and personal achievement to enrich academic and social skills.  CIS also provides six core components to students and their families:

    • Supportive guidance
    • Health and Human services coordination
    • Parent and family involvement
    • Career awareness
    • Enrichment activities and experiences
    • Educational enhancement and academic support

    Because we realize that every student has different needs, we offer a variety of programs to best serve each student on an individual basis.  In addition, CIS may be able to assist with school supplies and provide resource contacts to meet many needs of families.  We hope to be a valuable tool in making your student’s learning process a successful and enjoyable one.

    CIS programs are fun, creative, student oriented and free.
