CIS spring musical showcase Tuesday

MILLEDGEVILLE — Communities In Schools of Milledgeville-Baldwin County (CISMBC) will host a spring musical showcase next week to raise funds for projects the organization brings to the community and to local schools.

The spring musical showcase will feature talent from area schools in collaboration to help CISMBC continue to implement programs that encourage students to stay in school.

The event will feature instrumental, choral and dance performances by Baldwin High School, Georgia Military College Prep School, Oak Hill Middle School, The Vibe Dance Center and Georgia College Community Dance Program.

“We have sites set up in almost all public schools in the area,” said Jessica Choice, site services director.

Communities in Schools sites are located at Baldwin High School; Creekside, Blandy, Eagle Ridge and Midway Elementary Schools; and the Early Learning Center. As of now Oak Hill Middle School is the only school in the area that is not being serviced by CISMBC, but the group hopes to add the school in the near future.

The purpose of CISMBC is to aid local students who are at risk of failure to stay in school and achieve academically. CISMBC creates various learning and career programs to foster development in specific students and prepare them for a life of success outside the school.

Choice said the concert is a great event because it not only brings much needed funds to the organization but it also provides an opportunity for the different schools and the community to come together.

“We all work with the schools and the community to help bring resources to the students that they need to achieve success,” she said.

Programs such as the ASPIRE program at the Early Learning Center also provide resources for parents to help their children succeed in school.

The concert is slated for 7 p.m. Tuesday in Russell Auditorium at Georgia College. Tickets are $5 per person and children under 5 years of age are admitted for free.

For more information or to purchase tickets contact participating schools or Jessica Choice at 478-452-3408.
