CHENM Graduation Update!

From Michelle Barnes

CHENM graduation is around the corner!!! This is such a great event put on by our group each year. I would encourage everyone to come out and attend even if you don’t have a student participating in the program.
Please read the following information if you have a kindergartner, 8th grader or senior. You can also refer to chenm.org for more graduation info.

Rehearsal will be Thursday, April 30th at 6pm at Harrisburg Baptist. All participating k, 8th and seniors need to attend.
I am still waiting to find out how early seniors can arrive to set up their displays. I will post that info as soon as I have it. Each senior will have half of a 6 foot table to use. They will be covered with black tablecloths provided by the church.

Seniors need to also remember to bring a footed cake stand and a framed 5×7 senior photo to rehearsal for the reception tables. These can be brought into the reception hall. Please label the bottom of your cake plate.

Graduation will be at 7:00pm, Friday, May 1st.

Mark Stevens will be taking group and individual pictures before the ceremony. We are asking that seniors arrive at 5pm for pictures, 8th graders arrive at 5:30 and kindergartners arrive at 6:00. Please arrive at your scheduled time to make it easy for Mark to get pictures of each group and the individual students in a timely fashion. Even if you do not plan on getting pictures from Mark, please plan to have your student present at the above times for the group photographs.

Senior families will have one row reserved near the front of the church, noted with each family name. We realize some families will only have two guests and some will have twenty. However, to be fair to all, only one row is reserved for each senior. All other seating is on a first come basis. Please tell your family and friends to arrive early.

8th graders will serve as greeters and hand out programs. Please have them meet at the back of the sanctuary at 6:30 Friday night.

Seniors need to also make sure Shanda Martin has received their pictures for the senior slide show.

Reminder that the senior contact person is Roan Simmons Johnson, 8th grade contact is Renee McGill and kindergarten contact is Alana Lentz. For all other graduation questions please comment here or private message me.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 1.29.01 PM

 

Hello everyone, as promised, the Board has scrubbed the membership rolls and have produced a list of families that have not paid their 2014-2015 CHENM Dues.  So, in the next couple of weeks expect contact, via email, from a Board Member reminding you of your dues.  Please let us know if we have made a mistake, if you just forgot and are sending them now, or if you need help and may qualify for a scholarship.  We want to keep you in the group!  If you are in this Facebook group and have not paid your dues, you will be removed at the end of the month.   If you are unsure, please contact Kim Killough on Facebook or at her email khomeschool@aol.com, to check your status.  Hopefully, we will be up and running with our yearly bank draft soon. Thanks, Kelly

To pay your delinquent dues now, please mail a check for $30 to CHENM at PO BOX 3441, Tupelo, MS 38803.

Reminder 2015-2016 dues will be assessed on August 1st, 2015.  Also remember that dues are not collected in senior packages, sports fees or yearbooks fees.  These payments are always mailed in or collected at a new member meeting or the Ice Cream Social.
