Activities and support...

Columbia River Music Support Group
The CRHS Music Association meet, generally, the first Thursday of each month, won't you consider joining them? Without solid fundraising and support, the types and numbers of activities we do will be severely limited. Please do everything you can to help and support this important organization.
Below find the calendar for the 2019-2020 school year. Near dates are reasonably accurate. Dates further away are a little more ambiguous. For this reason, it is useful to check in with this page and document frequently for changes or additions.
2019 - 2020 (rev 1/10/20) Calendar
Near dates are accurate. Concert and further away dates could still change. This calendar includes concert dates for Hudson's Bay Orchestra
Band and Orchestra "Clearance"
Students participating in Band and Orchestra must "clear" with the business office.  The district-mandated fees need to be paid and band students will need to complete a physical.   This is being done online this year.  The link to do this is below.
