SIXTH - EIGHTH GRADE
Where students find their vision and their voice.
Our Band program provides students with instruction in woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. Performances include Christmas and Spring Concerts, as well as opportunities to audition for All-District and All-State Band. Smaller performing groups include the Middle School Praise Band and Jazz Ensemble.
Students in grades 6-8 have the opportunity to audition for the middle school musical, a production that not only benefits local charities but gives young actors the opportunity to perform with CHS high school students and alumni. Last year’s production of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever raised money for City of Refuge Dalton.
Students explore a variety of media as they continue to build their skills in drawing, painting, graphics, and sculpture. Classes will include art history and technique demonstrations to develop the four strands of art education: art appreciation, art history, art production, and art criticism.
