CHS Instrumental Music Program
We make good music, great leaders, and amazing human beings. Plain and simple.
Our Guiding Principles
1. We are respectful and accepting of everyone. 2. We are always working, constantly learning, and progressively growing. 3. We are a class act, everywhere we go, representing the Minutemen. 4. We are present, here and now, living for the moment. 5. We are a team. We are a family. We are strong as one.
