IUP Trip


The IUP day went very well. Students enjoyed the day and were given the chance to work with other groups, college singers, and work on same-day learning and performance skills.

Chocolate Sales

Another order was submitted to Sarris. They will deliver this order for us. This sale will work the same as before: You purchase the box of chocolates up front for $30. The cost of the box is recouped directly to you through sales and $15 is deposited in the student’s account from the up-front purchase. This is one of our best fundraisers, as the chocolate always sells well. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Kipp.

Last Year Tshirts

There are still T-shirts are available from last year for $10 if anyone wants another or wasn’t able to get one in the spring. Please see Mrs. Kipp to purchase one.

Donut and Candy Sales

Mrs. Bohaski and Mrs. Wieland are contacting suppliers for candy and donut sales at the school tentatively set for the last Friday of each month like last year. It was such a hit last year, the students are very interested in having the donuts back.

Online Fundraiser

We are contacting Pepper Fundraising which is an online fundraising retailer. Brochures will be provided to the students to give friends and family. Supporters order products online. Pepper offers and wide variety of goods (coffee & tea, treats, home goods, magazine subscriptions, etc) Supporters place their order directly on the website, and their items are shipped directly to them from Pepper (no order pickups or drop-offs for us). The company sends the funds generated by sales directly to CVCPSA

Hoagie or Wedgie sales

Volunteers are talking with bakers / pizza makers to get costs and profits for a possible hoagie or wedgie sale to occur at the same time as other fundraisers. If it is popular, then we may have another after the holidays but before the April trip.

Bonfire October 22

The annual bonfire will be October 22 6pm to 9pm at the Locust Pavillion and fire pit at Scott Park. Please sign up to attend with Mrs. Kipp if you haven’t already. Families welcome. Each student attending will be asked to contribute a portion of the food or paper ware. PSA officers will organize games etc. This is a night for the chorus students to spend time together and socialize without the demands of a performance.

Holiday Performance

Middle School Holiday choral performance is December 7. The High School performance is December 15. Holiday performances will be combined with band and held in the cafeteria using risers. Refreshments are being coordinated with band boosters and advisers. Treats for backstage bags for students will be available as in prior years.

April Williamsburg Trip

The down payment for the trip has been made, charter bus reserved, and the itinerary is set. It includes hotel, security guard, park admissions, time at Virginia Beach, and more. Details will be provided as time goes on. The tour company is offering trip insurance for anyone who is interested. Currently 24 students intend to participate. Sign-up time is OPEN and additional students will bring the cost of the trip down for everyone. Cut-off for sign-up will be announced. $125 Trip Payments are due the first Friday of each month.
