MUSIC AND ART
Crismon Chorus students put on a fabulous performances each year.
Crismon Band and Orchestra present evening concerts and an end of the year student body assembly for both advanced and beginning band as well as orchestra.
Crismon's P.E. program partners with ASU, Blue Cross Blue Shield, American Heart Association, and The Alliance for a Healthier Generation to provide students with a diverse variety of healthy and active extension activities.
The P.E. department strives to give all students opportunities outside the regular P.E. classroom to be healthy and active. The Physical Education teachers lead the afterschool running program, Fitness Fridays, and four fun-filled activity days: Turkey Trot Day, Merry Fitness Day, Jump Rope for Heart Day, and Field Days. In the Spring, the P.E. teachers invite Kindergarten families to join their children for a P.E. Demonstration night. Parents and guardians are welcome to join in any or all of our upcoming events this school year.

SERVICE LEARNING AND CHARITY EVENTS
Service learning is working on many projects this year. We are raising money for Heifer International through can drives and Hats for Heifers Days where students can where a hat all day. We also created 48 kitty blankets to donate to the Arizona Humane Society in our after school club.
Jump Rope for Heart and our annual food drive during our Turkey Trot are also wonderfully successful charity events.
This year we are also having a plastic bag collection which will be used to create sleeping mats for the homeless in the Philippines.
We wish to thank everyone for all of the ways both students and parents have helped with these projects.
