Student and staff holiday

East Rowan High School

The CGMS Chorus has been invited to sing at the 2nd annual "RSS Arts

Festival". The event will take place at East Rowan High School on Saturday, June 2nd. This event will showcase a variety of student work and musical presentations from all of the schools within our district. Family & friends will be free to move around the campus and view all of the different displays and performances throughout the day.

The event is from 9:00am-2:00pm. Numerous choirs will perform in the gymnasium throughout the day. The CGMS Chorus will perform from 10:42am-11:00am and students may leave after we sing.

At this time I am asking that you plan on having your student AT East Rowan High School at 10:00am so that we can warm-up and prepare for our performance. Should this time need to be altered, you will be notified as soon as possible. I will send home an additional reminder letter as we get closer to the event date with finalized details and times.

Experience the power of a new public education

At RSS, we inspire and provide opportunities for innovative and engaging learning.
