South Bend Symphony Orchestra
Our 4th graders had the opportunity to attend the South Bend Symphony Orchestra last week. For over 30 years, the SBSO has introduced thousands of area elementary school students to the world of symphonic music in an exciting and engaging concert designed especially for them! Students, teachers, and chaperones from 75 school groups all had the amazing experience of attending this concert.
Thank you Mrs. Thomas for coordinating this opportunity for our students!
Kindness and Compassion Drive Nov 25 - Dec 6
In order to promote kindness and compassion within
the school and community, specifically this holiday
season, we are encouraging participation in our 6th
Annual Kindness and Compassion Drive. Among the
items we will be collecting include:
NEW unwrapped toys and gift cards,
new or gently used winter coats, and
waterproof winter gear.
Please bring your donations to the CIS school office. We hope that you will join us and support our goal of 100% participation in any way that you are able.
On Tuesday, we will have the opportunity to have a therapy dog visit our school. Research strongly supports the use of therapy dogs due to the benefits they can provide. Here are some of the benefits:
- Lower people's blood pressure and stress levels
- Increase levels of dopamine and serotonin
- Improve physical well-being
- Decrease anxiety
- Increase positive mood
If you would like to learn more about therapy dogs, here is a brief article describing the benefits of therapy dogs: Bringing a Dog to School
Please let your child's teacher know if you do not want your child to interact with the therapy dog.
Thank you Mr. Ehlers for allowing us to have this opportunity!
