"Dear Friends at the Austin Fire Department:
"Thank you so much for hosting our students during the Communities in Schools (CIS) Groundhog Job Shadow Day. Your willingness to open your doors for students in the Spring of their lives, provided them the opportunity to explore new career possibilities and helped to plant seeds that are sure to blossom in the years to come.
"Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities in Schools creates a network for volunteers, community organizations, and businesses that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed. CIS is the only dropout prevention program in Texas reducing dropout rates and increasing graduation, and this year, CIS will provide crucial support to over 6,000 students.
"Thank you again for helping make a difference in the lives of Central Texas students!"
