THANK YOU to those of you who were at the football game on Friday night in being patient with the uncertainty the weather provided. Speaking with Sarah and my own limited experience, being called out of the stands for thunder and lightning hasn’t happened while the band has been in attendance. The weather passed and the game continued which was fantastic because that meant we were able to see our amazing kids perform at half time. Didn’t they all look and sound FANTASTIC!
Time to GET ON BOARD!

8th Grade Band and Chili Night –THIS WEEK!
8th graders from West & Campus will join the marching band to see what it’s like to be apart of the Marching Band at CCHS! Apart of this tradition includes having them join the marching band for a fabulous Chili Dinner before the football game. This is lots of fun for the students.
Please look at the sign-up genius link below and see if there is a way YOU can help make this special event happen. Thank you in advance for your generous donations of food and time and hope if you’re able, you will sign up to help set up, serve some food, or clean up afterwards! Thanks also to our wonderful baking committee for dessert donations! It will be a great night!
If by chance the pots of chili slots are filled but you would like to share your fabulous family recipe with the band, please just bring your crock pot of chili to the IC Café by 5pm. Not a chili maker (like myself) perhaps you can contribute some sour cream or cheese. Coming straight from work? Maybe you could help set up, serve or clear up. Check out what is needed here https://m.signupgenius.com/?sfns=mo#!/showSignUp/20f044fa8a82baafc1-8thgrade
