The first COBA meeting of the 2020/2021 was called to order on 8/3 at 6:37pm.
The minutes from the last meeting in May are posted on the website.
Our treasurer did not attend the meeting, a financial report will be posted on the website soon.
All 8 COBA scholarships for the 2019/2020 school year have been distributed to the recipients' schools.
The new signage for the Dinner Theater and concerts have arrived.
The Orchestra Camp scheduled for August 10-13 has been canceled.
The COBA Weebly website has been renewed for another 2 years. The cost was $77.94--Carrie Fuhrmann paid the renewal fee and will be reimbursed by COBA.
Formal Uniform distribution will possibly occur in November before the Holiday Concert. There will be no Fall Concert.
Orchestra T-shirts will ordered as soon as students are able to place their orders. We are considering ordering Churchill Orchestra face masks as well. Mr. Thibodeaux would like COBA to look into using Lulubells as our t-shirt vendor because the company is owned by former Churchill Orchestra parents.
Orchestra supplies such as binders, pencils, etc. will be purchased when we have firm numbers of returning Orchestra students.
The Freshman Pool Party has been canceled and is possibly to be replaced by a virtual movie night that is to be led by the Orchestra Officers.
Basically all Fall activities have been canceled. Spring activities are still on the calendar with the exception of the Dude Ranch Trip. NEISD has canceled all school trips for the 2020/2021 school year.
We are looking into the possibility of having an online Talent Show and online Auction to replace our annual Dinner Theater/Silent Auction.
Once Mr. Thibodeaux and Mr. Norton have their class rosters, they will encourage parents to complete their information in the CHARMS system. We will then be able to contact parents--especially the freshman parents.
Next meeting is on September 14, 2020 at 6:30pm. Probably via ZOOM.
Meeting adjourned at 7:40pm.
Parent organization to support Churchill Orchestra.
