Parent Meeting next Tuesday July 29 at 5pm

Parents! As stated in our last newsletter we will have a parent meeting right after camp at 5pm next week on Tuesday, July 29th in the new CHS auditorium. At this meeting we will have a question/answer session about the operations of the band and our booster club. We will introduce our booster officers and accept nominations for officer positions. We have a lot of new students in the band this year who are doing an amazing job. YOUR STUDENTS need your help! There are many things that go into supporting a band organization. The only way it works is through your attendance and participation in what your student does. Again, next Tuesday, July 29 at 5pm in the new CHS auditorium.
