Services provided by CPO include:
Financial support through membership donations, general donations, grants, and fundraising activities. Funds are used to pay for: sheet music, transportation, accompanists, instrumental musicians, piano tuning, classroom equipment and supplies, scholarships, festival fees, clinicians, auditorium rental, custodial services, awards and programs.
Administrative support through volunteer hours. Volunteers coordinate communications regarding each choir’s activities to parents, event planning, fundraising activities, grant applications, concert program preparations, website and calendar maintenance, and administrative and clerical assistance to the Choral Director.
We encourage you to join our organization.
Mr. Pugh is not only preparing our performers for greatness, but he is also introducing some new and exciting events and opportunities for our performers. A parent organization has been established, the possibility of a choir tour has been discussed, and the opportunity to offer items such as flower sales, raffles, and possibly a snack station at our upcoming choir events is in the works. All of these upcoming opportunities, and events will require fundraising and parent participation. I am a firm believer that it “takes a village” to run a successful program, and I also believe in everyone’s participation. Our performers will participate in four concerts this season, and with over 180 students we should have more than enough participation if everyone works one evening as a volunteer. My goal is to have San Dimas volunteers work a Lone Hill event, and Lone Hill parents work a San Dimas event. This way everyone has the opportunity to view their students’ performance uninterrupted.
Below is a list of upcoming concert dates. Please reply back to me via email as soon as possible with your desired date to work. Each family is required to work one event. If you personally cannot work an event please send a family member, neighbor, or friend in your place. Your assigned duty of Ticket Sales, Ticket Takers, Usher, Flower Sales, or Snack Station will be assigned upon arrival. You can send anyone over the age of 18 to volunteer they just cannot be a current San Dimas or Lone Hill student. Please reply below with your preferred dates. Thank you in advance for helping to make our Choral Program a success, and for investing time in your performer.
