Area Concert Concession Assignments
We will be having a simple concession stand for the Area Concert and Premios next Wednesday, 5/22. We need everyone's help to maximize this fundraiser as we prepare for the 2019 marching band season! Please View the attached PDF for section assignments. Note that all items must be store bought and pre-packaged.
Cerritos Area Concert & Premios Del Oros Performances - Wednesday, 5/22 - 5:00 pm
This year we get to have two performances in one day due to logistical challenges with facilities. At least that is one less evening that students need to be at school... Students will need to remain at CHS from the end of 6th period until we're done packing up equipment after the Premios Awards (roughly 6:30-7 pm). Attire is Concert Black with plain black ties for men and formal shoes for all. If a student is receiving a Premios Award they may wear different attire, but they must speak with me about it first to make sure it is concert appropriate.
Please park in the North Lot off 183rd Street! We will have the blacktop open for close parking spots and extra space.
Banquet Orders Due!
It's going to be a great time and I hope to see everyone there to celebrate a year of musical excellence. Get your banquet orders submitted to the lockbox by this Friday, 5/17! Check with your students to make sure they actually submitted the money (many times it gets forgotten in their backpacks...). Seniors, get your photos submitted to me for the dedications!
Banquet Help Needed!
The program is in need of helpers for banquet set-up and clean-up. Please email Annie Prajak if you can kindly spare some extra time <email@example.com>.
- 1:00-3:00 pm: Set-Up
- End of Banquet + One Hour: Clean-Up
Percussion Ensemble & Jazz Band Branch Out
Our students continue to impress audiences around Southern California with performances from our smaller ensembles. The Jazz Band performed their 'gig' repertoire at last week's District Office Employee Breakfast. Rumors of their excellent rendition of The Beatle's Yesterday with Katelyn Robinson singing are spreading quickly... The Percussion Ensemble traveled to San Marcos HS to perform in the annual San Diego Percussion Festival. Adjudicators from the San Diego Symphony were present and gave the students very positive feedback; especially for their first year focusing on concert percussion. Thank you to all the parents who attended! I look forward to developing our percussion program in future years for both the battery and percussion ensemble.
2019/2020 Athletic Packets Due Friday, 5/31!
Please take the time to complete this packet in full to save yourself the headache of a returned packet later. Furthermore, these packets must be submitted to Mrs. Acosta in the main office (not to me)! If you don't have a primary care physician, the Athletic Office recommends Dr. Ken Iwaki for sports physicals; information below.
