Minutes from our last meeting are posted on the website.
Financials are unchanged from last month. There is one outstanding scholarship check from the 2019/2020 school year that still has not been cashed. It was discovered that the check was sent to the wrong university (student never turned in acceptance form stating where to send check so there was confusion about where to send the check). The error has been corrected and the $1000.00 check should be cashed within the next couple of weeks. A note was made to amend the scholarship acceptance form to state that no scholarship check will be mailed out until the acceptance form has been returned by the student to COBA.
An online fundraiser will begin on March 15, 2021. More information will be given to the students as we get closer to Spring Break.
NEISD has cancelled all outside of school activities so it is doubtful that we will be able to have the Annual Orchestra Banquet. Anne Marie's will be called as to the status of our deposit from last year's banquet.
NEISD has cancelled all in-person concerts. Future concerts for this school year will be live streamed. The Pre-UIL concert will be live streamed on February 16th at 7pm. The judges for the UIL concert and sight reading contests will be coming to Churchill. This will be live streamed on March 1 & 2. Upgrading the camera used to produce the live streaming has been investigated because there were complaints about the picture quality of the Holiday Concert. However, the cost of the camera and necessary components is cost prohibitive ($5000.00).
The all school musical has been postponed until May 19-22, 2021. It has not yet been determined how the musical will be performed for an audience.
Mr. Thibodeaux would like COBA to pursue obtaining corporate sponsorships for the Orchestra like the band and athletics have. COBA will look into that possibility.
Meeting adjourned at 7:14pm.
