Invitational Volunteers Needed!


We are in urgent need of volunteers for the big CDS Marching Band Invitational that takes place on Sept. 29, 2014. We particularly need help with parking and setup. Parking involves helping direct the vehicles from the visiting bands into the Knox Road parking lot, and set-up includes, you guessed it, setting up tables and chairs at the volunteer areas, erecting three shade covers, and placing signage around campus. If you can help, please sign up here.

Individual Marching Band Portraits


Individual Marching Band Portraits will be taken on Monday, September 22, and Tuesday, September 23. Although only Seniors are required to have portraits taken (for their Senior Night badges), all band members are encouraged to have portraits taken. Full band, section, and friends photos will be taken on Group Photo Day - October 15. Please use our online form to sign up for a time.

Harkins Fundraiser


It's always movie time! Earn money for your student's band account by selling Harkins gift cards and loyalty cups! The gift cards will be sold for $25.00 each with $2.50 going to the student's account. Cups will be sold for $5 with $1 going to the student's account. Order forms with payment are due by Nov. 1 and can be turned in to Mr. Duplessis or Emily Manning. Items will be delivered before the winter break. A voucher will be given for each cup, which can be then traded at any Harkins theatre for the 2015 loyalty cup.



We had a number of parents volunteer through the "Pick your Pleasure" form that was distributed with the Band Camp packet. Thanks! Another way to volunteer is to indicate which events and/or support roles you might be interested in via this handy on-line form. A list of the myriad tasks and events that people typically help out with is available here.
