Senior Parents: Update on Graduation Slide Show

We have had to move up the completion of the senior slideshow to accommodate the needs of Irving Bible Church.

Everything for the slideshow will need to be turned in no later than Friday, April 26th. Just a reminder that we need a baby photo and a senior photo (preferably one of your senior in a college shirt or professional photo) - we also have a scanner and are willing to scan in any photo for you.

If you sent in photos for a senior ad, we will use those photos in the slideshow unless we are otherwise instructed

Choir UIL Success

Dear CISD Family,

Aaron Coronado and I had the privilege of bringing 5 choirs to Region 31 Choir UIL last week (Tuesday - Thursday) at Trinity High School. All 5 choirs sounded astonishing on stage and performed beautifully in the sight reading room.

Each choir received the highest rating possible (1) from ALL 6 JUDGES. We took home 5 sweepstakes trophies and are very proud of our learners for their hard work and success. Please help us congratulate all choir learners on their amazing achievement.
