Band Electives for 2019-2020 School Year

KC Band Families,

There is one more week before classes are finalized here at CHS.

Students who are interested in enrolling in any band electives will need to drop another elective they’re already enrolled in. Please make sure the elective outside of the band program is something that is not required to graduate on your personal plan. Most students take random electives to fill in their schedule or decide to take an off period. We want to offer more opportunities for students to grow musically and perform!

If you’re interested in enrolling, please follow the link below to give us the information needed. Students will need to let us know what non-band elective to un-enroll them from.
