Middle school is a really hard time for kids. Not only are you transitioning from being a child to a young adult, you’re also pumped full of hormones. This transition is exasperated when a student is also dealing with a hard home life. To really help kids who are struggling it often takes a lot of time and one-on-one attention that school districts simply don’t have. That’s where Communities in Schools comes in. On this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor we speak with Ario Salazar, the Executive Director for Communities in Schools of Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
