Important Information

Music at CIS

Students will decide to take Band or General Music as their music special. This class meets once a week for 40 minutes and is part of a specials rotation that includes art, computers, library, and PE. Students receive a letter grade for their music special on a quarterly basis. The band special provides small group instruction based on a student's homeroom.

NEW FOR 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR - Fine Arts Day
