Who We Are: Parents of Performing Students is the parent booster organization for the CRHS music department. The group was started eighteen years ago by parents who wanted to raise funds for new music uniforms. This young newly formed organization successfully raised $45,000 for those initial uniforms and POPS has continued to enrich CRHS music programs throughout the years.
What We Do: We work along with Lisa Larsen and Dean Coutsouridis to organize fundraisers and provide manpower for music events.
WHY we do it: Because it's FUN!!!!......... And it benefits our children and their music programs.
How You Can Help: Get involved! If your child is in any music program at the high school you are automatically a member of POPS; Bake cookies. Come to a meeting; Make phone calls; Help organize a fundraiser. You can be involved as little or as much as you like, but your participation is critical to maintain the high standards our wonderful music department has achieved.
