Special thanks to the many volunteers who have been helping with our Fine Arts Initiatives these past few weeks—we couldn’t do it without you!
Our REDtrizity and REDtrizity Jr. Concert on the Towne Lake Boardwalk Stage has been rescheduled to Tuesday, Nov 27 from 6-6:45 pm. Techheadz and choir should report to the stage at 5:30 pm. Consider staying after the concert for lots of dining options for families.
If your student did not order a REDtrizity Choir shirt or a TechHeadz hat, please contact Mr. Stabe immediately to make arrangements for a single purchase.
Lunchroom Concerts -Our last two concerts of the year are both Christmas oriented Nov 28(standard show) and Dec 5 Blue Note Cafe. If your student has signed up be sure they contact Mr. Stabe immediately to set up final run-throughs. We still need a volunteer to help with our Nov 28 concert. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4ea5a723a1fc1-lunchable

If you are interested in having your student tested for the GT program, the Parent Survey and Permission to Test form must be completed and returned by the deadline. Forms are available below and at the front desk.
Parents may also go on the CFISD website under the Horizons Gifted and Talented tab to find more information.
