Our band kids loved our Taco meal
So this Saturday we are doing a Baked Ziti Meal.

This is a tight schedule and we especially need lots of help to make this happen and get the kids/chaperones/techs all done in half an hour.

Please sign up with the signup genius. We need all food by Saturday 12:15 PM. Any questions, let me know.

Thank you so much,
Sandy Brocious

    The Coatesville Parents Music Club (CPMC) makes every effort to support the marching band and all if its activities as best it can. However, there are some fees that need to be passed onto the students and their families. CPMC recognizes that families need different options for paying for these fees such as participating in fund raisers or various options to make payments. CPMC has set-up the ability to accept payments through Paypal by using your own Paypal account or by using a debit or credit card. Of course, cash and check will continue to be acceptable forms of payment.

    Our band performs in 2 different competition organizations.  Cavalcade of Bands (COB) http://cavalcadeofbands.com/marching/scheduleresults/and USBands https://trigonroad.com/yea/schedule.cfm.

    Concessions is one of the easiest ways to volunteer and get engaged with CPMC activities.  It’s just 1-2 hours of preparing and/or handing out food/drinks.  We have some returning helpers and even several who returned after their kids graduated Coatesville. I guess they are coming back because they had such a blast in past.  (it’s also a great way to stay warm during the cold game nights) 
    Please come out and support our amazing students. We always have a great time together in the concession stands. Any questions contact Diana McLimans vp1@cvillepmc.org and Lisa Last lisamlast@hotmail.com .

    Our color guard needs your help. We are in desperate need of people who can cut material and/or sew. Monday night at 6:00, they need people to cut and sew flags. The sewing is simple but you will need your own sewing machine.
    If you have a sewing machine that you can bring, then bring it.
    If you have scissors that can cut fabric, bring them.
    Flags that aren't completed at the school can be taken home and sewn at home.

    They would like the flags done so they can be used for Wednesday practice. Please reply if you are able to help.
