A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR
- Angelo Vandarakis and all the hard working car wash Orchestra, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band students and parents! We were able to quickly change our car wash venue and raised $1,200 for all our instrumental music programs! This was our last car wash of the year, so thanks to everyone that washed, and brought us a dirty car to clean.
- Joan Sasaki for working with CPC to allow us to move our car wash to their campus.
- Community Presbyterian Church (CPC) for being such wonderful hosts for our car wash event. They not only donated the use of their property (completed with hoses and water) but bought our hungry students a pizza lunch as well!
- Our wonderful jazz band musicians that entertained everyone at Back to School night on 8/28. Great job!
