Dear CET families,
We’ve just concluded another amazing CET season – our 39th as an organization – and once again we’re impressed with what a great job the entire CET family did this year. This includes the kids, parents, donors/sponsors, community members who attended our performances, teachers/directors, teaching assistants and staff. It truly is a team effort, and I want to extend my personal thanks to everyone.
Our productions were top notch this year, thanks to the performers, tech team, teachers/directors, and teaching assistants. Fine Arts Night and Gala were a perfect ending to the season, with the kids showcasing what they’ve learned in their classes. We so appreciate the critical support from parents and the community at our final celebration. Thank you, gala committee members, for all your hard work and dedication. It was a great evening!
Don’t forget to order DVDs of Fine Arts Night and also highlights of the season. An outside company did the filming and put together the DVDs. This company also is handling all orders, payments, mailing, etc. Please contact the outside company – not CET – if you have questions or want to place an order. Here’s the information sent to us from the vendor:
DVD copies of the Couch Potatoes and Mid-Summer Festival plays (all in one DVD) are now available for pre-order from Contra Zoom Productions. Also available for pre-order is the 2013 CET Memory DVD, which will contain this year’s Fine Arts Night at the Elsinore Theatre, as well as a documentary featuring segments from each of this year’s plays, interviews with teaching assistants and cast members, and behind-the-scenes footage of CET life.
Individual DVDs will be priced at $15, bundles of 2 DVDs will be $25, and all 3 will be available for $30.
In addition, DVDs from 2012 are available, which includes Giraffes Can’t Dance, The Mid-Summer Festival plays (Friends Forever/Just So, It Happened/Everybody Knows That), 12 Resourceful Princesses, and the 2012 CET memory DVD. The 2012 DVDs are on sale for $10 each. For more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Aidan Evans at 503-910-6811.
I’d like to especially thank this season’s parents, guardians and families. The parent service assignments and duties went off without a hitch – the smoothest we’ve experienced in recent memory. We understand being the parent/guardian of a CET student is a major commitment, and we really appreciate your time, dedication and commitment. We couldn’t do CET without you!
I also want to thank our fantastic sponsors, donors and grant-giving organizations. You helped make the season a smashing success – including helping us provide more than $7,800 in tuition assistance to 29 CET students.
Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to seeing you for the 2014 CET season – our 40th as an organization. We’re planning a major community event this spring to commemorate our 40th year and to establish a permanent scholarship fund … so stay tuned.
P.S. – Please enjoy this last installment of the fabulous TA Diaries!
