Purchase Tickets for Band Banquet

Tickets are now on sale for the band banquet! The last “normal” banquet was 2019 and we are so happy to be getting back to normal. This event will include a catered meal, awards ceremony, and entertainment. The purpose is to celebrate student achievement, with a focus on our 27 seniors! It is also a great time for students and parents to socialize and cap off the school year.

Tickets are $20 per person (the 27 senior students will attend FREE of charge). The flyer shown below describes the details! Your student will receive a paper copy in band class. However, if it does not make it home please click on the link to print your own copy. Cut-off the bottom indicating your food choices, staple your check, and place in the black box outside of the band director’s office in the band hall. Deadline is April 29th.

Looking forward to a wonderful evening! Next week, there will be a Sign-Up genius to recruit volunteers at the event itself: set-up/decorations, check students in, take pictures in the “photo booth”, serve the meal, serve drinks, serve dessert, clean up, etc. If you have any questions, Contact Chrystal Limon (Band Banquet Chair) at .

Volunteers for Spring UIL Event (April 26, 27, 28)

Please take a look at the volunteer needs for the April 26-28 Spring UIL Event at CLHS. We are fortunate that our students don’t have to take a bus to another location and miss most of a day of school. We are also fortunate that our students can learn leadership skills and earn volunteer hours while hosting the event. Parents are needed to help in TWO ways.

First, provide a couple of volunteers in the sight-reading room to “mange the clock” (timer) – you will be trained! There are three shifts: one LONG morning shift and two shorter afternoon shifts. Those who sign up for the LONG morning shift will have lunch provided.

Parents are also needed for hospitality for the judges. There are three shifts: set-up breakfast, set-up lunch, and clean-up. You will be reimbursed same day for your expenses.
