Madrigals Performance at Lee Today

Madrigals,

You will need to arrive at Lee Elementary NO LATER THAN 1:15 in your outfits. In order for this to happen you will need to do the following:

 

1. Change into your costumes during lunch

2. Leave directly from the end of 4th period (or C Lunch) and head to Lee.

3. Bring your clothes to change at LEE once we are done so that you can go straight back to 6th without having to change at CHS

 

NEW TECHIES – FIGURE IT OUT 🙂  DON’T COME TO CHS.

 

The address is 8808 Chaparral Waters Way Dallas, TX 75019

 

We will have passes to excuse your tardy to 6th period if needed.  Be safe!

ALL CHOIRS – Dessert Show Information

Hello Choir Parents and Students,

 

Respira, CHS’s fabulous all girls show choir, is about to have their Holiday Dessert Show. The shows are on Tuesday, December 16thand Thursday December 18th.  We are expecting a big crowd and need your help with desserts. We need individually wrapped, single serving desserts. Two big cookies in a baggie, a slice of cake, any kind of candied mix, cupcakes, brownies etc. are all great. If the dessert requires a fork we ask that you attach one. Please do not bring desserts that require refrigeration or anything with nuts due to nut allergies.

 

Our choir directors are asking all parents of A Cappella and Bella Voce members to bring one dozen dessert servings.  All parents of Respira members are required to bring two dozen individually wrapped desserts and a case of water bottles.

 

Please bring your desserts to the choir room by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 15th.

 

Thanks so much for your help. If you have questions please email Leslie Lookabaugh (Leslielook@verizon.net) or Beth Hohfeler (beth0313@verizon.net).
