Message from Music & Band

It has been an eventful few months for the Grades 4-6 elementary music program. The Grade 4 music classes have been working hard on their music literacy, and the students are starting to get excited about reading music. The Grade 5 students are now at the stage of knowing eight notes on their instruments, and are busy preparing for their first performance. The Grade 6’s have shown a lot of maturity as of late, as they rehearse all together!

All Grades 4, 5 and 6 will perform at the Winter Concert, in CFIS’s Elementary Gymnasium, on Wednesday, December 12th, at 2 p.m.

PT interviews, kindergarten sharing, and the power of play

As you know, we have had 2 evenings of parent-teacher interviews this week. It was a pleasure to cross paths with so many of you, and to hear such positive feedback about your children’s experiences so far this year. CFIS students are so lucky to have such engaged and involved families who participate so actively in their educational experience.
