Graduation 2019

Hi all,

I wanted to give you specific information regarding the upcoming rehearsal and ceremony on June 5th for graduation.
First of all, I gave incorrect information regarding your ability to stay for the graduation program.  You need a ticket to enter the stadium.  Sorry!
During the afternoon I need the students to report to the football field at 5 pm, ready to practice with the sound engineer.
After we are done they will go to the chorus room and have pizza and dress for the program.  Dress is black dress pants and socks, shoes and a pressed white dress shirt.  For ladies they should wear their best while following school dress code.  Shoes need to not be spikes s they cut the field.  Covered shoulder and reasonable length for dresses.
We will report to the field at 6:50.  The program usually takes and hour and 45 minutes to two hours.  Students stay for the entire program, as we sing the Alma Mater at the end.  I will encourage the students to be picked up at the football field.
Please note that I will keep the students’ cell phones until the end of the ceremony.  At that time they will get them and be able to take pictures.  So, they will not need to return to the chorus room.
Have a great summer!
Mrs. Kipp

Congratulations to the Class of 2019

Moving on to graduation!

The students are singing at graduation on June 5th.  Performance dress for men is black dress pants, white dress shirt and black dress shoes and socks.  Women should wear dressy clothes with reasonably shoes and follow school rules about shoulder coverage and dress length.
I will meet them on the football field at 5 PM sharp to practice on the field with the company that runs our sound.  When we are finished we’ll go back to the chorus room where I’ll have pizza and water for them.  They’ll have time to change into their formal apparel after we eat.
We go out to the field at 6:45.  The ceremony usually takes a couple of hours.
You are welcome to come to the outdoor graduation program.  It is usually a lovely night to sit outside and observe the festivities.

Bunny Breakfast and concert rehearsal

Hi CV chorus families!
We had a great turn-out of chorus students and parents for the annual breakfast.  The HS cafeteria was a wonderful venue and the parents and students that decorated it Friday night did a lovely job.
The 25 + students that worked the event will have their banquet on April 26th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (across from S Hills Village) paid for by this event.
Please remember our dress rehearsal on April 8th from 6-8 pm for the Spring chorus and senior recognition concert.  The Concert is April 11th at 7 pm with sign in for students at  6:20.
This has been a great year for CVHS chorus.  Thanks to all of you that helped make our events happen!
