We're approaching the heat of Marching Band Season! Football games, competitions, and Saturday rehearsals, oh my!
Football Game Volunteering - Friday 9/6 @ Rant's Stadium
Our first home game at Rant's Stadium (11111 Artesia Blvd) is this Friday, September 6th! It's time to donate Snack Bar Items to our concessions booth! This is a huge fundraiser for us and we're extremely lucky to be able to run the concession stand at home football games. Thank you for helping us continue to offer a great concessions stand!

And now a message from our VP of Hospitality, Andrea Ellison...
Snack Bar Volunteering Fun!
If you haven't already signed up and would like to help at the snack bar this coming Friday at Rant's Stadium at Gahr HS, then please email me (Andrea Ellison) at CHSROGVolunteers@gmail.com If you have any experience working the CHS snack bar, we could use your expertise to help us to get set up and show our new parents "the ropes". We hope to see you there!
Invoices Sent Home on Thursday (Yellow Paper)
Last Thursday ROG members were given invoices for this season. Firework booth credit and previous donations are included. In order to attend the optional music program field trips throughout the school year (after the marching band season) students must have this financial request fulfilled. Now seems like a good time to announce that this year's trips will include a Soundtrack Session at Disneyland and the Jazz Band will travel and perform at a world-renown Jazz Festival!
Thank you for your continued support. We couldn't offer a top-notch marching band experience without your help.
Jazz Band - Fridays, 3:00-4:30 pm
The CHS Jazz Band will begin rehearsing on Friday, September 13th. We will continue on every Friday without a football game. Once we get into December, we will rehearse every Friday from 3-4:30 pm. The Jazz Band is a fun ensemble that plays gigs in the community, sports events at CHS, and other opportunities that arise. This ensemble does not require an audition; anyone interested can come and play! We're in most need of rhythm players; bass guitar, electric guitar, drums, and piano. As I mentioned above, the Jazz Band will travel to a Jazz Festival in April!
Share Tea Success!
Thanks to everyone who came to Share Tea last Monday! That's 3 successful Family Nights in a row! Mark your calendar, the next one will be on Tuesday, September 24th at Blaze Pizza & Habit Burger on the same night (next to each other in Plaza 183)!
