Hello CFHS Band family!
Welcome to high school band! We are glad to have you continuing your musical journey with the incredible tradition of music at Chippewa Falls High School.
There are many questions about what this fall might look like - for now in the band program we are preparing for 'business as usual'. We wanted to share a few bits of information with you now, and then we will have updates later as more decisions are made and we know more about what we are working with.
First, if you haven't found your way over to the website yet, you should visit www.cfhsbands.org. This is a great resource with lots of information for band families.
Be sure to check out the calendar and look at the dates for band camp in August - while this isn't required of freshmen and students in the Varsity Band, you are more than welcome to join us! We'd love to see you and it is a great way to ease back into the swing of things in a fun and relaxed setting.
Speaking of band camp - we have had a few freshmen students inquire about joining the competitive Marching Cardinals. We are glad that you are excited! Because of the logistics that go into this, we would need around ten freshmen students interested in joining the competitive marching band to be able to accommodate something like this. If this describes you, please email Mr. Renneke right away (firstname.lastname@example.org) - we need to hear from you by Monday, July 6 - and let him know you are interested.
Otherwise, we hope that you enjoy the rest of your summer and that you get a chance to play your instrument now and then! In the meantime, if you have any questions about high school in general or band specifically, please know that you are now the newest members of the CFHS Band Family, and we are here to help out in anyway that we can. I know that the future is a little murky with uncertainty right now, but we will figure it out as we go - together!
If we can be of service in any way, please don't hesitate to reach out.
