What’s Happening – August 14 & beyond


Please look for a separate email for Band Camp Week

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR COLOR GUARD FLAGS

Do you sew?  Can you cut material?  Can you pin 2 pieces of fabric together?  Can you iron?  Then we need you.  The color guard is getting flags for the show but they need cut, pinned, sewed and ironed before they can use them.  Sewing is simple but you will need a sewing machine.  The sewing is straight lines.  Nothing complicated.  Please let me know and we’ll get you on the list for when they are ready to have the flags made. Some of this will be done at the school and some can be taken home.

This is another great opportunity to help the band be successful and make some new friends while you’re at it!

 

BAND CAMP

Drill books are due the first day of Band Camp.  A drill book is a 1-1.5” binder that will hold all of the materials the students will need for the season (i.e. Drill, Music, Exercises, etc.).  The students will need to have the binder and plenty of plastic sheet protectors (at least 50) by the first day of camp.  Any questions feel free to contact Mr. Hughes.

RED RAIDER MARCHING BAND

What’s Happening – July 24 

 

BAND CAMP

Band Camp starts Monday, August 7th from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM.  In order for our students to have the most success they need to be prepared.  Simple things like eating breakfast and staying hydrated will keep band camp as a fun memory.  Be sure to check the “Band Camp Survival Guide” (attached) for what to bring, how to dress, and other helpful hints.

Drill books are due the first day of Band Camp.  A drill book is a 1-1.5” binder that will hold all of the materials the students will need for the season (i.e. Drill, Music, Exercises, etc.).  The students will need to have the binder and plenty of plastic sheet protectors (at least 50) by the first day of camp.  Any questions feel free to contact Mr. Hughes.

The second week of band camp is spirit week.  Here is the daily list:
Monday -  Superhero/Twin Day
Tuesday – Class Color

  • Senior – Purple
  • Juniors – Blue
  • Sophomore – Green
  • Freshman – Yellow
  • Middle School -  White
  • Staff – Tie Dye

Wednesday – Wacky Tacky
Thursday – Section Day
Friday – Red and Black

BAND CAMP PARENT VOLUNTEERS
PARENTS - We URGENTLY need YOUR help to make our 2017 Band Camp a success.
We need volunteers for the Volunteer/Medical Tent.  The CPMC offers volunteers throughout band camp to assist Mr. Hughes with various tasks, water and Gatorade for band members and medical support when needed.  If you are in the medical field (RN, LPN, EMT, etc...) we need YOU!!  Also, we need parent volunteers even if you don't have any medical experience.
Attached is the Band Camp Sign Up Genius:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c44adaf2ba20-2017
Please sign up for as many shifts as you can.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

PARENTS MEET & GREET (flyer attached)

Wednesday, July 26th at 6:00 PM, we will have a Meet & Greet outside the band room for all parents wanting to learn more about the CPMC and the Marching Band.  This is a great time, especially for parents/guardians new to the band, to talk with seasoned parents of band students, ask questions, understand band camp better and learn what volunteer opportunities you can be involved in.  We have a great time and light snacks will be served.  Involvement is the only way we can make this busy organization work.  Don’t sit back and watch, we need you!

Subject: 2016 Band T-Shirts - Better late than never
Date: July 13, 2017 at 9:30:43 PM EDT
To: CPMC Parents <mb-parents-2017@cvillepmc.org>, CPMC Students <mb-students-2017@cvillepmc.org>

Hi all,

Over the past several months we've heard from many students/parents/guardians that they're disappointed that band shirts for the 2016 season were never printed up.  Not only is the shirt a great way to remember the season, but the cost is included in the band membership dues.

So we're going to print shirts with the 2016 show design and provide one for every student who was a member of the 2016 band.  The art work is taken from the image used on the dog tags that were handed out at the band banquet.

Here's what we need from everyone who was a 2016 marching band member:

1) If you're just not interested in the shirt anymore and you don't want one, reply to this email and let me know.  You'll save us a little money and time.

2) Otherwise, verify your shirt size in the attached list.  If the size is wrong, reply to this email and let me know.

Deadline for response: Wednesday, July 19

If I don't hear from you by then, I will assume you want a shirt and the shirt size is OK.

Thanks.

Mike Brocious
CPMC President

Good Morning Band Families!!

This is one of the most exciting times for our students, and there is a lot going on.  Here is a quick update so you are in the loop.

1)      March to DC Update

a.       Information

I am in need of some information in order to finalize our trip plans and get us to D.C.  Please follow the link and complete a separate form for each member of your family that will be attending the trip.  There are questions for Students only and questions for Chaperones only that are labeled as such.  Please pay attention and answer all things that apply to you.  

https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=3QJJ2F6vd0K0fYArM3exHVoTG4nBjj9PvhZVpOBi-CJUM1pQUUdYMkZSVDQ3SzUyNjlSU0ZLVzVCTC4u

b.      Payment

The final date we can accept payment for the D.C. Trip is June 2nd.  All accounts need to be settled by then.  If that is not possible, you need to be in contact with Mr. Hughes by May 31 in order to work out something.  If payment is not received by June 2nd and no contact has been made with Mr. Hughes, unfortunately you will NOT be able to attend the trip.

c.       Parent Meeting-Wednesday, May 31st

We will be holding a MANDATORY Parent meeting for the students travelling to Washington D.C.  At this meeting we will be giving out the final details and making sure that everyone is ready to go.  See you there.

d.      Remind

In order for us all to stay in the loop with quick communication, I have set up a class on remind.com.  I ask that all students and chaperones join the class so we can do a test at the Parade Meeting on May 31st.  There is a link to sign up for the class below.  Remind can send messages via text message, email, or the app(can be found in both the Apple and Google app stores).  If you have questions feel free to email me.  

https://www.remind.com/join/7228fc

2)      Marching Band Interest Meetings

a.       Part 1-Wednesday, May 24th

This date is the traditional time that we start our marching band season.  With our trip to D.C. and the new membership coming in, we need to get started right away!  We will have a PARENT AND STUDENT meeting beginning at 6pm.  This meeting will cover all of the basics of beginning a new season including the distribution of our band packet, Meeting the staff and new CPMC board, and some inside information on how to best participate in all of the wonderful opportunities that our music department has to offer.  Following this meeting, the students will begin their first rehearsal of the new season(pickup is at 9PM).  There will also be a parent meeting in the lobby to discuss some of our volunteer opportunities and other exciting ways to be a part of the CPMC.

b.      Part 2-Monday, June 5th

Due to conflicts with spring concerts, we have opened up a second opportunity for parents to come out and get the information that is necessary to have a successful season.  All information that was available from the first meeting will be available at this meeting with the addition of the show reveal for the 2017-2018 marching band season.  The format will be the same with the Parent and student meeting first followed by the split sessions.

3)      Special Olympics

The band students will be playing at the Special Olympics this Thursday.  Due to the strange schedules and the inability for our students to cross the street I will not see them in class to hand out permission slips.  All marching band students need to pay attention to any announcements or forms that may be given out during advisory for the next few days.  Any student who does not have signed form from their teachers giving them permission to perform will not be allowed to do so.  This is not a mandatory performance but one that we have traditionally done as a service to our school.

So as you can see, even in the “off season” the band is in full swing.  Hope to see everyone soon.

 

Peace and Blessings,

Mr. Hughes

Good Morning Band Families!

There is a lot of information I would like to share with you so please read all the way to the end.

  1. D.C. Update
    1. Thank you so much to everyone who has paid off their accounts.  With the final payment for the trip due very soon, this money is crucial!!  If you have not settled your accounts please do so by June 2, 2017.  If that is not a possibility, please reach out to me with an update so I know how to best advise our treasurers.
    2. Attached you will find our itinerary for the trip.  One major change for me is the omission of the day before rehearsal.  It was something that I was used to having when working with this particular parade company in the past and so I was sure there would be a rehearsal.  Instead there will be warm up time on the morning of, but no official rehearsal the day before.  Please note the FLEXIBLE ITINERARY piece if you are planning to follow the band on your own.  It means that the tour company has the right to change anything at the last minute, so please stay in contact with the chaperones and myself for up to the minute changes.  There will be more in depth information about each of the events such as dress code at our next parent parade meeting to be scheduled for late May or Early June.
  2. Concert Week Updates
    1. We are currently in the Concert Red Zone.  I am extremely excited for this showcase of the years hard work from all of our programs including the indoor groups, jazz band, percussion ensemble, and concert band.  Monday evening the Indoor Drumline will be rehearsing from 6PM-9PM.  The Jazz Band will be rehearsing on Tuesday from 2:30PM-4PM.  The Symphonic Band will have their Dress Rehearsal on stage Wednesday from 2:30PM-5PM.  The indoor Colorguards will rehears Wednesday evening from 6PM-9PM.  The Jazz Band will have their Dress Rehearsal on Thursday from 2:30PM-4PM.  And Finally the concert is on Friday starting in the CASH Gymnasium  at 6PM(Students arrive at 5PM).  So as you can see a very busy week for all.
  3. Fundraising Updates
    1. Thanks to everyone involved with the Spaghetti Dinner and Vender Fair last weekend.  Both events turned out well and we couldn’t have done it without you.
    2. Remember we are still selling iPhone raffle tickets and discount cards.  The iPhone fundraiser is to lower the cost of the total trip which will trickle down into savings for everyone.  Discount cards go directly to the student accounts and can directly help to reduce your individual balance.  Sell sell sell!!!
  4. Calendar Updates
    1. If you are attached to the google calendar, you may have noticed a few changes in reference to the summer schedule.  Marching band is coming!!  The students and staff are excited!  A few dates that are currently set in stone are Leadership auditions on Monday May 15, 2017 and the Marching Band Interest Meeting and First Practice on May 24, 2017.
    2. Wednesday May 10, 2017 is our next CPMC meeting.  This is a very important time for you to attend meetings.  As I tell the kids, band is better with a buddy, so bring a friend to the meeting.  Make these meetings a part of your monthly routine so you are always in the know and there to help make crucial decisions that effect our students.  And don’t forget, these meetings aren’t just for the band!!!  Choir and orchestra parents we need your help and input too!  More information to follow from our wonderful president Mrs. Ann Morroney.
  5. Successes
    1. I know this has been a long update, but this should make it worth your while.  Please join me in celebrating successes at Coatesville High School.  Congratulations go out to our Middle School Colorguard in becoming the first Atlantic Coast Champions of the weekend.  For those of you that are unaware, the Middle School and High School Colorguards travelled to Wildwood, NJ to compete in the TIA Atlantic Coast Championships.  The Middle School Finals were on Friday and the High School Finals are on Sunday.

Have a great weekend!!

Dear Band Families,

It is with great excitement and anticipation that I correspond with you today.  The DC Parade is almost here!  Since we are so close to the end, there were a few items that I would like to address.

Last Friday, April 7th was the final payment for the trip.  If you were not able settle your account, please reach out to Carla Kime or myself so we can work out a plan to get all of the marching red raiders and their adoring fans to DC.

The second item I would like to make everyone aware of is that there are only 5 spots left on the trip.  So if you were still pondering your involvement in the first trip the band has taken in 10 years, you need to grab your seat quick.  This is a reminder that this opportunity is open to students of the marching band 6th grade through our graduating seniors.

If you are one of our loyal supporters who may not be able to commit to the entire trip but would love to cheer the Marching Red Raiders on in person, never fear there is a unique opportunity to travel on a fan bus sponsored by the CPMC.  Don’t worry about parking or traffic, and ride in style with other Red Raider fans.  The fan bus is first come first served so stay tuned.

Last but certainly not least, I would like to touch on our fundraising efforts.  Our current fundraisers include the Krispy Kreme Doughnut sale(Due today April 10th), tickets to our Spaghetti Dinner(April 29th), iPhone Raffle tickets(Picked at spring concert), and discount cards(An all year bargain).  These fund raisers are set up to help us get each and every one of our students to DC without having to pay an arm and a leg.  Money from these fund raisers can also be credited toward future band activities, including next year’s dues.

I surly hope that you are just as excited as I am to get this show on the road, literally.  We will be anxiously awaiting all of the final paperwork and finances to make this dream a reality.  Thank you kindly for your time and dedication to the students, and if not before then, see you at the Spring Concert on May 12, 2017.  Have a blessed day!!

-Mr. Hughes-

Hello Red Raider Marching Band Families and Friends,

Who’s ready to march in the Washington, DC parade?  The Red Raider Marching Band!  Our band is so excited for this once in a lifetime event but we need to raise a lot of money to reduce the cost for our families.  Attached are several active fundraisers to assist us in raising money.

Please reach out to everyone you know for a chance to win an iPhone 7 or $500 gift card.  Tickets are only $2 for 1 ticket and $5 for 3 tickets. Money and filled out raffle tickets can be put in the CPMC mailbox.  The top seller of raffle tickets can also win $100, the second top seller can win $50 and the 3rd top seller will get $25.  It’s a win win!

Our Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser is being catered by Stacey Estes in the High School Cafeteria.  This event will take place April 29th.  We are offering curb side takeout and homemade desserts.  We will also need every available student and adult help for this fundraiser.  Bakers will also be needed for our desserts.  Look for a signup genius for this event in the near future.

Our vendor fair is the next day at East Fallowfield Park on Sunday, April 30th from 12 – 4:00. There will be dozens of vendors, a bake sale and so much more.  Fun the whole family.

Please reach out to everyone you know.  We can’t get them there without it.


Sandy
