Fine Arts Update September 2021

The CISD Department of Fine Arts is sharing updates on elementary art and music and middle and high school visual art, band, choir,  theatre and the Lariettes, Silvers Stars and Coppell Cheer with the community, including fall event dates. 

Elementary Art and Music
CISD elementary Art and Music students have had a wonderful return to the classrooms. The students are already producing great work and preparing for upcoming performances with their talented teachers. It’s good to be back in the elementary specials classes.


Secondary Visual Art
For the first time since the pandemic began, our Art students were able to showcase their works at CISD’s Vonita White Administration Building. We saw works from learners at CHS9, New Tech High @ Coppell and Coppell High School going on display at the Admin Building for all our visitors to enjoy. If your child submitted an artwork to the Admin Building, go over and see it on display.


Secondary Band
Our Band students, from 6th grade up through the high school, are working diligently and safely to bring live music back into our schools. The CHS Marching Band has already performed at a number of football games and welcome back events, including a special performance on Sept. 10 honoring September 11. The middle school band programs are holding weekly masterclasses for students to aid in their preparations for the upcoming CISD All-City Band Auditions.


Secondary Choir
The Choir students are also making great strides as they prepare for an awesome year. The CHS Choir has already sung at a few welcome back events for our school year, including the first Pep Rally of the year and the first two Coppell Varsity Football Games.


Secondary Theatre
The high school and middle school Theatre students are in rehearsals for productions set to go up across the district in the coming months. Check out the list of future performances at the bottom of this update.


Lariettes, Silver Stars, and Coppell Cheer
If you’ve been to a Varsity or JV Football Game lately, you’ve seen our Lariettes, Silver Stars and Cheerleaders working to keep the crowd engaged and entertained at all performances. As well, the Lariettes and Cheerleaders recently performed at the first pep rally of the year. This past Friday, it was exciting to see so many young cheerleaders coming out to learn a bit about becoming a CHS Cheerleader.
