Just a few things...

Happy Summer Everybody!

Great job with the parade.  Everyone did a super job!  Thank you so much for giving of your time and effort for your band, school and town!

Just a quick update:

1)  Don't forget band camp begins on Monday, August 8th.  While we understand some students are also involved in athletics, we would ask, for organization purposes, that you please be at camp for the opening ceremonies.  We all need to "be on the same page" before the rush begins!  Please check-in with your coach to make sure they are aware that you need to be with us when camp opens at 9:00 AM for announcements and camp details!  "Co-Activity Forms" to be signed by parents, coach and band director will be distributed during the first hour at camp!  We need to know exactly when you'll be away from camp for other scholastic activities.

2)  All band payments should now all be received by the music department.  If, by chance, you have not turned-in yours, please send it ASAP to the high school office; attention Mrs. Culbertson.

3)  The remainder of the Cedar Point tickets are being ordered presently (This Weekend).  If you have not turned in your $25 payment to the music boosters please do so ASAP!   As per the music boosters; tickets will only be purchased for students who have turned in a check. 

4)  Find some time to practice your music.  There are some technical areas in it, so don't wait until you show up at band camp.  It may be hard to catch-up!

Have a great "rest of the summer"!

Graduation Band & June Percussion Practices...

Graduation Band:

The CHS Graduation ceremony is slated for this coming Saturday, June 4th at 1:30 PM.  All high school band members in grades 9, 10 and 11 should report to the bandroom at 1:00 PM and find their seat in the gymnasium by 1:15 PM for warm-up and tuning.  Music to be performed will be Pomp and Circumstance (graduation march) and the senior selection Carry on Wayward Sun.  Appropriate  attire is required!

As a band member, participation in graduation band is a very important end of year tradition, and is of utmost importance.  Students who experience a schedule conflict must see Mr. Dettmar ahead of time with a note from a parent explaining the conflict in order to be excused!  Thank you for your cooperation.

The practices are for all members of both the marching battery AND the pit percussion.

If you are in town we'd like for you to join us, especially if you have not been to any of the past springtime evening percussion clinics!

Attention Percussion Battery Members!

Change in Battery Practice...

Congratulations to all our talented track and field participants on making it to the finals.  Because so many of them will need to miss the final battery "drum line" practice this Wednesday evening, we've all decided it might be best to hold the practice on Thursday evening, May 26th instead!  While we apologize for another change, we were just notified of our finals eligibility, and have no control over the state athletic calendar!!!

Attention "PIT" percussion people...

Your practice is still on for this Wednesday night at 7 PM!  See you there!
