Changes to Unified Arts Courses for 2023-24 School Year

Dear CMS Families,

Middle school students in the Attleboro Public Schools engage in learning experiences in special subjects including physical education, art, general music, Science Technology Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). We are excited to announce that the schedule for all three middle schools will include band and chorus as additional courses for the 2023-2024 school year.

Students can opt into band or chorus for the year by switching out of general music and half of their art or physical education experience. The chart below shows the options that are available to your child should they select band or chorus to be included in their schedule.

Students will take part in an assembly during the week of Jan 30th and be given the opportunity to ask questions and then during the following week, be given a form to fill out with their selection.
