CA Update 11 - 15 - 15
Home of the Braves
Parents of seniors. We understand senior year can be a year of ups and downs. Since many senior year courses are half year courses I ask that you pay special attention to your senior's grades. At times, a senior might not put their all into their academics. If you see some slipping, lets work together to catch it now.

Holiday PRISM Concert Ticket Information
As the holiday season arrives, anticipation for the annual Holiday PRISM Concert builds fast. This year's PRISM Concert will be performed twice on Tuesday, December 8 at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. This is an energetic and joyful program that is very popular and well attended.
Due to the strong demand and popularity, tickets are required for admission. Tickets are free and are general admission. There are no reserved seats.
Tickets will be distributed in the following manner:
- All student musicians will receive tickets in class prior to box office hours. Each student will receive two tickets for every ensemble in which they participate, with a family maximum of 8. All tickets are general admission seating.
- Student performers whose last name falls within the first half of the alphabet (A-L) will be given tickets to the EARLY show and student performers with last names that begin with the second half of the alphabet (M-Z) will be given tickets to the LATE show. This is reversed from last year.
- Free general admission tickets will be available to the general public on Tuesday, December 1st from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM in the Canandaigua Academy atrium. At this time, up to 4 tickets may be acquired. Families may also visit the box office at this time to exchange tickets for a different show.
