Good morning CFHS Band Fam!
The day has arrived - fruit delivery! I know you have been anxiously watching this day approach on your calendar just as I have - it is it's own mini holiday!
We are hoping to organize pick-up a little differently this year to both help keep things moving slowly and to cut down on pick-up errors.
We suggest the following timing for order pick-up:
3:00 pm: Anyone with $500 or more in sales
3:30 pm: Students with 1-2 boxes (or a few more if riding the bus)
4:00 pm: Last names A-L
4:30 pm: Last names M-Z
If 4:00 pm works for you but your last name is Renneke, we won't turn you away. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding as you pick-up your fruit. We could still use a few more volunteers to help confirm orders.
The money is due Wednesday, December 19th and checks should be made out to CFHS.
CFHS Band Fam:
First, I want to wish you all a restful break next week. Parents, you should hear lots of practicing from your students as they prepare on their own for our concert which is rapidly approaching.
Second, if you are planning on traveling with the music department on our Performance Tour to New Orleans, please double check that your name is on the attached list. If you think are going on the trip, and your name isn't on the list, please get in touch with Ren right away.
In the next few days I will be going through the money turned in with today's 2nd Payment and your students will be receiving an updated statement in their email.
Finally, remember that the fruit order forms are due on the MONDAY we return from break. Hit your family up for some fruit around the Thanksgiving table.
Let me know if you have any questions!
Hello CFHS Band Family:
A few people have been asking for information about the Music Department Performance Tour this February to New Orleans.
A collection of resources has been assembled at www.chihimusictrip.com for you to look over. All of the information on the webpage has been discussed in class and/or passed out to students - so parents, it might be a good time to ask your student if they have this information! :)
The 'best' resource is the tri-fold brochure that we handed out to students at the beginning of the year. It contains trip costs, payment dates, and more.
Feel free to ask questions. The first deposit of $200 is due on Monday, October 8, along with the signed permission slip and trip agreement form. You can download these documents from the above website, or pick up hard copies on one of the trip bulletin boards in the band room. They were also handed out in class.
Hello CFHS Band Family!
I'm terribly sorry for the late notice, but there will be an informational meeting for parents and anyone interested in being a chaperone for the 2019 performance tour to New Orleans on Monday, September 10 at 6:00pm in the CFHS Choir Room.
If you aren't able to make the meeting, it will be recorded and the video shared with you afterwards.
You are not required to attend the meeting if you are interested in being a chaperone; attendance does not increase your 'chances' of being selected to chaperone. It is an opportunity to learn more about our upcoming performance tour, and ask any questions that may come up.
Every other year the CFHS Music Department embarks on an optional performance tour to a major American city, traveling with over 300 students from the bands, choirs, and orchestras. While on the trip, students participate in sight-seeing and visiting major historical landmarks of American history, as well as performing for and working with nationally acclaimed music educators from around the nation.
The 2019 performance tour takes place on February 13-18.
This blog is intended to serve as a collection of announcements and information for current students and their families.
