Positive Results from Chair Placement Exams
Being able to hear each CHS musician play by themselves was a wonderful experience. I heard progress and dedication in their preparation. This process also helps me plan for the future of our music program because I now have detailed information about our strengths and weaknesses. Results will be posted on Monday, January 28th.
