On Thursday, April 21st, the band council met for our monthly meeting in Mr. Peterson’s office. Because Miriam wasn’t present, yours truly took notes on her phone (and lost them lol).

At this meeting, we gathered all of the entries that were entered into our t-shirt design contest. Everyone voted for which designs they believed were eligible to be on our CHS Band shirts. Two of the designs represented our program extremely well, and we’ve decided to merge them into one awesome image. The result will be released soon.

Also discussed at the band council meeting:

The defunding of the art program has come to our attention. We came up with the idea of an art committee- representatives from each of the art programs (art, theater, band, and choir) meet monthly and discuss ways to raise money. If art is being cut, who knows what else could be cut in the future?

Last meeting, we were coming up with ways to raise money for our program. The idea for a pancake breakfast was introduced. We would show up at 6:30 in the morning on a school day and feed the students pancakes for a small charge. We realized donuts might be a little easier on us.

Our next band council meeting is TBA. See you then!
