As I write this week's newsletter I am aboard our return flight from Washington, DC with our group of 50 outstanding parents, students, and staff. As I've spent the last four days with our students I am again reminded how fortunate I am to lead this choral program. The students at CHHS are truly exceptional not only presenting two wonderful concerts at Washington National Cathedral and the the National Armed Forces Retirement Home, but also showing exemplary behavior, being inquisitive and attentive during tours, and showing off their US History Education firing answers to all of our tour guide's history questions. Thank you for your support of our program and these opportunities for our students. As we conclude one tour, we kick off another. Please see the newsletter below for registration information regarding the 2019 Tour to Hungary and Austria.
