Central Bucks East Choir

Welcome!

Welcome!

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year with the Central Bucks East Choir! There are a lot of special opportunities this year. We have a brand new choral room, a fantastic tour to Boston, and, as always, an awesome group of talented students and supportive parents!



This year we will be using a website service called Edmodo. Edmodo has many features that will make it easier for us to share information and communicate as a choir. Currently, all information on fundraisers, calendars, and student quizzes can be found on Edmodo. To sign up for Edmodo, simply go to www.edmodo.com and enter a user name, password and e-mail address. The last step is to add your group code. Hopefully, your child has already signed up. If your child has already signed up, you can use the parent code they see upon signing in to join the group. If there are any questions about this please e-mail me and I will assist in getting everyone on the same page.


Information

This year's choir tour will be to Boston, MA, from March 20 - 23. The trip offers a fantastic opportunity for our students to perform with great clinicians and in professional-level venues. For more information please see the information sheet on Edmodo, or the teacher site.



If you and your child are interested in travelling with us, please fill out a registration form on the Tour Resource Consultants web site. This form will act as an interest form and help us gauge how many students will be going. Simply click on the Registration link from the main page and enter the group code: cbemar2014. An instructional PDF can also be found on Edmodo. The first tour payment will not be due until Friday, October 11th.

Fundraising

We realize that the cost of the tour can be expensive for many families. To help offset the cost of the tour we are offering many fundraisers. The following are all fundraisers we are running this fall:



KidStuff Books

Program Advertisements

Yankee Candles

Mums

Poinsettias

Gift Cards


If you would like any information on any of the fundraisers, please go to the Edmodo site, or my teacher page.

CPO

The CPO is the Choir Parent Organization. This organization is vital to the foundations of the choir. The CPO is responsible for ordering choir uniforms, organizing and running fundraisers, contributing food and decorations for concerts, and assisting with the many choral activities throughout the year. If you are able to help, we would love to see you at our first CPO meeting on Wednesday, October 2nd at 7:00 pm in the choir room!
