Great Turnout at New Student Orientation!

Thank you to all who attended CFA’s New Student Orientation on May 15, 2018!   In the general session, students learned about the program and Henrico High from CFA Director Stephanie Poxon, HHS Principal Karin Castillo-Rose, School Counseling Director Erica Daniels, and FCFA President Terri Hague.  Each student received information from Dr. Poxon about the program, a calendar of CFA events for 2018-2019, their requested course schedule, course FAQs, information about Friends of CFA and a list of HHS clubs and athletic opportunities.  After the general session, students attended break out sessions in their curriculum areas where they met their future teachers and classmates and received a course syllabus, summer assignment and supply list.   Each area’s syllabus will be posted on this website soon under the “Current Students” tab.  Those unable to attend will recieve their packet in the mail.

Friends of Center for the Arts Fundraiser

From CFA family giving over the years, the Friends of CFA parent booster group has funded scholarships, equipment & learning opportunities. During March’s start to the Spring Showcase season, the FCFA is holding a Magic March campaign to raise the funds necessary to keep those initiatives going. Any amount is welcome and we’d love as many people from our students’ friends and family support network to participate.

To add motivation and excitement into the mix, we challenge each of the four disciplines’ supporters to demonstrate their enthusiasm for the CFA and the arts through their participation. The ‘Creative Four’ will compete on the percentage of students with supporters participating.  We’ll announce the winners the Monday after Spring Break, and will celebrate the winning discipline’s victory with an ice cream party during its CFA Seminar. So, please identify your student by name in a comment as you pledge so his or her discipline gets credit!!!

Here is the link and good luck!      https://www.gofundme.com/March-Magic-CFA-2018
