We are aware that there that there is a Competitive Cheer competition in Coopersville for many of our students. Directors have communicated with coaches to see if they can get to CSHS by 7:15-7:30 and they SHOULD wear their cheer uniform during the concert and not worry about changing. Please do your best to communicate rides with other Cheer/Band Members. Thank you!
All information about concert times and dates were communicated in our CSMS Band Handbook and are always printed on the back of their Practice Cards, which are sent home every other week on Monday and Tuesdays. Below is a link of the CSMS Handbook and our first 3 practice cards.
