Beyond classes in music, theater, and the visual arts, and because we believe that education/participation in the arts is an integral part of the development of students, we offer additional opportunities for student involvement in the arts outside of the classoom.
The fine arts department has created a fundraiser to help support our music, theater arts and visual arts programs! Please help us spread the word – we need to get this link out where parents will see it.
The shirt is now in school colors, and is available in all sizes. We are selling them for $17. Orders will be placed directly to the company through the site, and when the campaign ends they send us a check for our profits.
Thanks for your support!

Theater: because we believe the Arts are important, beyond the theater arts classes offered to students in grades 5 -12, the CIS theater arts program also supports a student drama club, performing two major works throughout the school year. The Drama Club presents a play at the end of the first semester. Then CIS students have the opportunity to audition for the Spring Musical - this year's production will be The Secret Garden.
Music/Band: music is an integral part of education at CIS. Music classes are offered K-12 focusing on the many kinds of multicultural music throughout history. Additionally, we offer band for grades 6-12 and a brand new choir currently for 6th grade students. Whether it be a band piece from Liberia, a choir piece from France, a middle school music class playing African drums, or an elementary class performing a song from Israel, we travel the whole world through music!
The band performs a winter concert and a spring concert each year. This year, in place of a band winter concert, we are going to have a Fine Arts Night. This will include our two bands (Concert Band and Symphonic Band), the 6th Grade Choir, the Elementary Choir, the Drama Club, and art exhibits from the Visual Arts students. It will be an exciting night packed full of great performances showing the amazing talent of our students!
