Fall 2018

Happy Fall!

Dear Colgan High School CFPA Families,

It is hard to believe that we have completed the first quarter of the 2018-2019 school year!

The CFPA Boosters hosted the First CFPA Family Picnic on August 25, 2018. This was a huge success thanks to the coordination of Rebecca Shields, Events Coordinator, and her team of volunteers! We had a great turn out of students and families. The collaboration of all the CFPA concentrations was terrific! The activities, food, and fellowship was a great way to kickoff the 2018-2019 school year! Thank you to the Colgan administration, staff, and teachers, the CFPA families that provided donations, and the CFPA families that volunteered their time to help set up and clean up. THANK YOU!

The CFPA is busy with fundraising! We are selling the 2018 White House Ornament for $25 and we have new spirit gear available on our online store. Be sure to check it out!

We are in need of a Fundraising Coordinator! If you are interested or know someone who is, please email or send a Facebook message to let us know you are interested. The CFPA Boosters work together help with all fundraising activities. We are in NEED of someone to be the coordinator.

CFPA Scholarship - Drew Koelsch

Hello everyone. As we get ready to turn the calendar to 2019…I can’t believe it either…our thoughts turn to the holidays and perhaps New Year’s resolutions. If you are a senior however, or the parent of a senior, you are most likely pre-occupied with college applications, job applications or maybe scholarship essays.

So while your hovering over those various forms, give a little thought about what the CFPA has meant to you during your time at Colgan because the CFPA Booster will once again be recognizing two seniors for our Outstanding Senior Scholarship. The committee is hard at work putting the final touches on the application and we plan to release it to students on February 11, 2019.

Last years awardees, Xavier Smith and Clarence Brown, continue to make us proud at VCU and Hampton University. We could not think of a better way to recognize their hard work and contributions to the Arts than awarding them scholarships. Now it’s your turn. The CFPA Boosters looks forward to awarding two $500 scholarships this year. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask at the next general Booster Meeting on 14 November.
