CPA meeting update

Due to the Curriculum Fair at NHS on Tuesday (2/9) evening, I've decided to take a different approach to this month's CPA meeting. The Curriculum Fair is an excellent opportunity to "advertise" the chorus, and to meet rising 9th graders and their parents. Unfortunately, it is during the time that I moved our CPA meeting to.

-Solution: "DROP-IN" CPA MEETING TUESDAY NIGHT, 6:30-8pm: If you were planning on coming to CPA, please come to the small gym and stop by the chorus table. You can get an agenda with all the information, talk to me about any questions, ideas or concerns, and watch a little of the chorus DVD from last spring (and see pictures from the fall concert). Feel free to come with questions about Florida, costumes, performances, fundraisers, EOE, Arts Night, Chorus Auditions, the musical, grades, repertoire, graduation or anything else. I will have a sign-up sheet where you can sign up to help the chorus with various tasks. Feel free to drop by anytime within the 6:30-8 time frame.

I will be sure to send the agenda and any progress made after the "drop-in" meeting on Tuesday.

--Don't forget about EOE rehearsal on Thursday, Feb 11 (6-8, Riverside) and EOE weekend.
--Drop-in CPA meeting Tues, 2/9, 6:30-8pm
--Normal CPA meeting: Thurs, 3/4, 7pm

--All schools are now closed Tuesday, February 2. Make-up days for traditional calendar are Feb. 19 and Mar. 19.

--Due to the weather, our CPA (Chorus Parents Association) meeting will be moved to Tuesday, February 9th at 7PM.

--If you have students involved in EOE (Evening of Entertainment), please note the following change and put these dates on your calendar:

Due to February 19, being a snow make-up day - we will not be able to have EOE rehearsal during the school day on Thursday, February 18 - as that Friday will be our one school day rehearsal day. Rehearsal check in at the DPAC will be between 3:45-4:10 pm on Thursday, February 18 - to start at 4:15.

4-Feb Thurs 6–8 pm Riverside
11-Feb Thurs 6–8 pm Riverside

Just a heads up that students will only miss one day of school for EOE.
