November News

Hello Comet Nation!

As we begin a month of thankfulness, I would like to take a moment to share my appreciation not only for the staff and faculty at CIS but for all of our students and their families. They work tirelessly to ensure that the students are being academically challenged as well as supported so they can become their best selves. Thank you!

We will be honoring our veterans and those who are still actively serving with a concert by our high school band under the direction of Ms. Alyssa Kennedy. If you are a Veteran or currently serving, we would be honored to have you attend the concert on November 10 beginning at 10:00.

We are thankful for our faculty and staff members who have serve or are still serving.

In a continuation of our service to our community, we have a few service projects for the months of November and December. First, our kindergarten, first and second grade classes are collecting gently used or new coats for a Coat Drive to support the Children's Home in Cabarrus County. Every family, K-12 is allowed to donate for this drive.

National Honor Society is having a Red Cross Blood Drive on November 8. If you would like to donate, see the QR code on the flyer below.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about our safety systems at CIS.

Results from Pink Out!

In October our CIS Volleyball Team raised $997.10 which will go directly to Atrium Health in Cabarrus County to support community members in getting mammograms. The day was a success, and all our community had a great time. Thank you to our coaches and the volleyball team for representing CIS ' four core values - respect, responsibility, service and solutions.

Volunteers Needed

Now that the first round of assessments is complete, we are in search for parent volunteers to work with small groups of students in grades K-8. If you are interested in supporting the students reach out to your Assistant Principals.

International Extravaganza

CIS has an annual International Extravaganza each year to celebrate our charter. This year we will celebrate on Thursday, November 17. Your child's teacher will be communicating about the events that will be happening in your child's classroom.

Students will also be able to participate in the Parade of Nations. Students can dress up to represent their family's country of origin and parade around the school. The parade will happen at 11:00. If your child would like to take part fill out this form.
