It’s that time again! Time to begin planning for next school year’s marching season!
Music for the show has already been given to students. I ask that all students please have their music memorized before camp begins, as this will make learning the show much easier for them. Also, flip folders will not be permitted on the field this year. To use as practice aides, recordings and extra copies of music are available on Schoology.
In late August we will begin practicing and putting the show together. Listed below are the practice dates and performance dates. We will rehearse weekly on Monday nights from 7-8:30pm, starting August 29th, and ending after our October 7th performance, with the exclusion of Labor Day. Please note the dates and times and take note of any current conflicts. Students will not be excused for practices or performances unless conflicts are recorded by Ms. Kochan in advance.

Dear Parents –
We’d like to provide an update on the ticket situation for the May 25 choir concerts. At this time, the 7 pm concert is SOLD OUT. We thank all of you for going online and reserving your tickets. It has helped us track the seating/overcrowding situation and will make for a better experience for all – performers and audience members.
We do understand that there are a few families out there who were unable to secure tickets to the 7 pm performance. To help alleviate that situation, we have begun a waiting list for tickets to that performance. To help facilitate getting tickets to those that need them, we are asking those of you that may have now found out you have more tickets than you need to email your child’s music teacher with the number of extra tickets you have and then to send them to school with your child. We will then redistribute the tickets to those on the waiting list. Here is their contact information–
Joy Paffenroth – 6-12 Grade Choir Director – firstname.lastname@example.org – 849-2358 x. 6158
Kim Tiegs – 5th Grade General Music Teacher – email@example.com – 849-9152 x. 2252
Russ Rautmann – Exec. Dir. of The Engler Center – firstname.lastname@example.org – 849-2358 x. 4847
There are still tickets available to the 1 pm performance and those can be reserved at www.englercenter.com.
Thank you so much for our cooperation and understanding as we work through this process. Please feel free to call/email if you have any questions or concerns.
Dr. Claire Martin – Superintendent
Mr. Ty Breitlow – CHS Principal
