Each year CIS of Richmond holds a Moving On Honors event honoring the strength and determination of an elementary, middle, and high school student. work with CIS to design a summer experience that is an extension of their journey. From summer camp, to enrichment classes, to college or career experiences– the students plan their own next step. We invite you to share the magic of last year’s stories.
“I had my wall up. Sometimes I wanted to be around people, sometimes I didn’t.. It took a few months, but when I finally realized she was someone I could talk to– I tell her everything” –Janiah, John Marshall High School
“I come to school and tell myself today is going to be a good day, and I’m like hoping for the absolute best outcome.” –Victoria, Fairfield Middle School
“We have this chart that shows emotions. Last year I put mad, frustrated, and sometimes calm. It was hard, but I found the strength to do better. This year I mostly put relaxed and goofy.” –David, Westover Hills Elementary School
