Parent Service Hours
It’s so important to communicate your hours to your committee chair so that they can log your time. We suggest emailing them on a weekly basis so they don’t have to hound you. All parents are required to participate in 15 hours of service time for each child enrolled in CET, unless you chose the buyout option when you registered. We couldn’t do it without you! We’re so appreciative of the time and effort you give to making CET such a successful and enriching program!

Work Nights
Please keep in mind that if you are on the Set Construction, Props or Costume Committee, there are work nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9PM.

CET Calendar
Please keep in mind that the CET calendar is subject to change throughout the season as we solidify plans and add events. The calendar that you received in your registration packet has been updated. Visit the calendar page to download the latest version or to add our Google calendar events to your own!

Auction Items Needed!
Although it is early in the CET season, Fine Arts Night will soon be upon us! If you have joined us for Fine Arts Night in the past, you know that it is a wonderful evening for CET students to showcase their talents and all that they have learned over the past month. It is an evening for parents to socialize and connect with other CET families. It is also an evening of fundraising. The Fine Arts Night Committee is still seeking services and items to auction off on Saturday, June 25th. Do you have a vacation rental? Own a business? Want to share your favorite hot spot with others? Please consider donating or soliciting auction items for CET! We truly appreciate your anticipated participation in this worthwhile event!

garyhasadatecoverphotoGary Has a Date is a one-woman comedy of bumbling proportions. Gary has at long last secured a date, but if he can’t stop tripping over himself, how will he get to first base? In this Mr. Bean-style comic romp, one man’s foolhardy journey through the world of dating soars with virtuosic physical comedy.
