        CAR WASH!

        The Car Wash is here! This is the MOST PROFITABLE FUNDRAISER WE HAVE! You receive money per hour for washing cars, but the real profit is gained through the attached pledge sheet. You must work for at least 2 hours on car wash day if you are going to turn in a pledge sheet. Let’s wash our way to NYC! You have until May 17th to collect pledges; we’ll wash cars on the 18th. Sign-up for time slots will be posted at a later date.

          Spring Celebration

          The Spring Celebration will take place on Saturday, May 11th at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. It will feature Rock Band 2, the Unaccompanied Minors, the CMS Singing Panthers, and the combined choirs from EP and CMS. This concert of contemporary and popular hits is always a fun way to celebrate spring. Free admission, so invite a friend!

          Refreshments will be available in the lobby at the end of the concert, particularly to welcome the families from CMS. If you are willing to bake or donate items for the refreshment table, please sign up to help at the link below:

                  SUMMER MARCHING CAMP

                  Thanks so much for your patience! The Summer Marching Camp schedule is presented below.

                   PLEASE NOTE: AS STATED IN THE COURSE SYLLABUS FOR BAND AND COLOR GUARD, SUMMER CAMP ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRD AND GRADED. If you have questions, please contact the Kazin’s as soon as possible. The school year is starting later, but the football and competitive season is not. We will need excellent attendance at ALL summer camps in order to tackle an ambitious competitive show. Excessive absences during summer camps will not only result in a grade reduction, but possible removal from the drill for the competitive show.
